I remember my first yoga class. Lying down on the mats, we were invited to notice how our breathing felt in our bodies. With my eyes closed I felt like finally I had found something where I didn't need to keep doing or pushing myself but could simply be....I have never looked back.
And now I am your yoga teacher! Where will your first yoga class lead you?
I am an experienced 500 hours yoga alliance teacher in seasonal yoga, specialising in seasonal yoga, qigong and yoga nidra, a deeply restorative relaxation technique that allows the body to thoroughly let go. I have practised yoga since 2002 studying Iyengar based, Ashtanga and Vinyasa Flow yoga, with elements of Qi Gong, Tai Chi and Feldenkreis movement.
Since my first life changing class with Ratnadevi at the Glasgow Buddhist Centre, wherever I travelled, my yoga mat always followed, and for many years I dreamed of teaching yoga to others, inspired by the stillness continued practice can bring. On becoming pregnant I made that dream reality and in 2012, I completed my 200 hour Seasonal Yoga Teacher Training, with Julie Hanson, Sue Woodd and Marit Griffiths. In 2015 I trained further, graudating as a 500 hours yoga teacher, and in 2016 became E-RYT 500 certified wih Yoga Alliance. I am part of the Seasonal Yoga teacher training faculty and led practice as part of the Live at Five show on STV.
I began my training in Total Yoga Nidra in 2016 with Uma Dinsmore-Tuli and Ben Wolff and was invited to become an Associate Facilitator with the team in 2019. I continue to deepen my learning and teaching skills attending workshops, courses and through self study and love sharing workshops and classes in the UK and now live online.
Why would you want to try a class with me? I love people and sharing my passion for yoga and mindful practice. Everyone is welcome, no-one is expected to keep up. I offer a safe and fun space to explore your practice in ways that acknowledge, affirm and celebrate you as you are. Together we can grow more flexible, stronger and more present, in a kind and self affirming way.
