"As a passionate yogi, on and off the mat, it is my life's purpose to help others find their peace, while I experience mine. 

Achieving a life-long dream of travelling to India sparked my love for the Yogic way of life. Living with people who had nothing but experienced pure contentment and joy showed me how possible it is to live a truly happy, healthy and fulfilled life. Passionately intrigued by this idea I have continued my studies in Yoga, Meditation, Philosophy and Ayurveda and have made it a priority to share all that I can while I continue to learn about, grow from and  experience this fulfilling path in it's entirety.  

Each day is a blessing,  a chance to learn, grow, connect and  experience a little more of what this incredible world has to offer. I am filled with gratitude for this life and I hope to instill the same sense of wonderment and awe in others. "

"India calling... I had the privilege of travelling to India to 'Ananda Yoga' Ashram, in the province of Utter Pradesh, Northern India in 2010 E.V. I spent six weeks at the Ashram, and left with the beautiful universal gift of Yoga, and my certification, to teach all ages (Internationally recognised). This beautiful gift was completed by being in the presence of the Dalai Lama, and enjoying time in Rishikesh ~ the Yoga capital of the world. 

I am: a Buddhist, Vegan, Animal Rights Activist, Musician and Writer. But, above all, I am a Yoga Instructor and Reiki Master. My Yoga journey started over 10 years ago with the practice of Iyengar Yoga, and continues to grow to this day. "I found Yoga; I found love." 

As a healer, it is my responsibility and a blessing to share these gifts, and to share them with love.

"My yoga practice started with me just wanting to 'feel good'. I tried out different exercises just to get my body moving, but nothing really stuck until Yoga came along. WOW.... did I fall IN LOVE with the practice! I started to feel amazing, like a positive shift happened within me after each practice. All the parts of Yoga like the breathing techniques, meditation and keeping present and focused, as well as, movement for the body was, and still is, just so aligned with what I value.

After some time of practicing yoga I was introduced to children's yoga and was inspired to see how these lessons were teaching the children essential life skills through a fun yoga practice. That's when I decided I wanted to get involved and make Yoga a part of my life.  After becoming a Children's Yoga Instructor things continued to evolve and eventually I went to India for a month to practice and to learn more about yoga. My training was a wonderful experience as I learnt the traditional Indian yoga, and it has now deepened my interest and love for the practice of yoga. 

I will continue to grow through experience and feel it will be a great journey ahead. A forever wonderful and evolving, unfolding journey..."

“Yoga is the relationship that is built between the body, the mind and the breath, Yoga is freedom and release. I am here to help others find this release so that they can be comfortable and confidently move their bodies through life.   

  As a Pranic healer I have a deep understanding of energetic anatomy and how it functions and relates to the physical body.     

  Yoga has been a part of my life for over 5 years, and my practice helped me grow stronger, more flexible and fearless both on and off the mat. Yoga inspires me to live each moment more mindfully. “

"Yoga is the journey of the self, through the self, to the self." - The Bhagavad Gita

The journey of self-discovery is the most important journey we can take. It is about finding ourselves, accepting ourselves as we are and expressing that divine power within without fear; uncovering and tapping into the very best we can be. It is a lifelong journey and it all starts with a single step; onto the mat.

My first step onto the mat came at a time in my life when I thought I had exhausted all options and had nowhere left to turn. From that first step, yoga showed me that the happiness I was continuously searching for in this life was already within me. And I promise you can find that same, elusive happiness within you too. All you have to do is take that first step.

I am a 500 level Hatha yoga teacher with a devoted love for everything calm, tranquil, slow and serene. I specialise in traditional hatha yoga but also like to incorporate and explore principles and techniques from more gentle, introspective styles like yin yoga and restorative yoga.

My classes follow a balanced approach, focusing on uniting body, mind and spirit through the use of asana (postures), pranayama (breath-work) as well as mindfulness and meditation techniques. My intention? To ensure that everyone who leaves class feels a little lighter, more balanced, calm and collected and fully committed to continuing down their own path to reconnecting with their true selves.

"When you lose touch with your inner stillness, you lose touch with yourself. When you lose touch with yourself, you lose yourself in the world."  ~Eckhart Tolle

Yoga has been the gateway for my spiritual journey. I started practicing Yoga back in my home city, London, where I tried a range of studios and classes as a form of indoor exercise (it rains a lot in the UK!) and a way to relieve stress from living in a fast-paced city with a busy job. 

I fell in love with the way that Yoga builds strength, balance, and flexibility in the body and the way that the asana (physical poses) unifies the body and mind by focusing on the breath.  

However, I soon realized that practicing yoga is so much more than a 'physical workout' or a 'good stretch' and that the benefits of yoga go beyond the hour spent on the mat. I noticed that I had better concentration at work; I became more patient and confident; less anxious and was sleeping much better! 

The Yoga Teacher Training course opened a whole new level of awareness about the practice and myself. I love teaching Yoga and supporting the journey of people coming to the mat and connecting to their body, mind, and soul.
