I have been a teacher all my adult life, and have brought my classroom
expertise into the Yoga studio.
Initially I trained in Hatha yoga with the “British Wheel of Yoga” and then in the Ashtanga tradition with “Africa Yoga”, Iyengar yoga with David Jacobs, and Yoga Synergy with Simon Borg-Olivier. I then dived deeper into the world of Wellness by completing a program in Holistic Medicine.
I have worked and trained with many renowned and inspiring teachers, in various yoga traditions, nationally and internationally; completed courses in meditation and yoga therapy; and attended numerous workshops.
All this has allowed my practice and teaching to deepen and evolve to match the needs of my students.
My training in traditional and contemporary yoga systems continue to inform my teaching, creating a dynamic and rigorous blend of carefully sequenced Vinyasa Flow choreographed to inspirational music.
I draw from all of these experiences to create classes that are unique and that will best serve the amazing people practicing at any given moment. Through my studies I have developed a strong interest in how linking the flow of breath and body uncovers deepening layers of self-awareness and generates calm.
As a scientist I pay particular attention to the affects of yoga on the physical body; my scientific background and understanding of the physiology and anatomy of each pose gives me an important insight into the physiological and psychological effects of yoga, and provides a sound basis by which to ensure the practice is beneficial and safe for each student.
An internationally recognized experienced yoga teacher (E-RYT200) with more than 5,000 hrs of yoga teaching experience over more than 20 yrs; I hold graduate degrees in Zoology, Physiology and Biochemistry, am a Reiki Master Practitioner and a Holistic Therapist (C.H.A. dip).
I taught Biology at secondary school level for more than 25 years then Art for 10 years: now retired, I concentrate on yoga teaching.
