    Co-Owner; Reiki Master and Teacher,  Hatha and Restorative Yoga Instructor, Meditation Guide

I am Blessed to be a natural teacher and have offered many long and short courses over the years, on subjects such as The Chakras, Reiki, Meditation, Spirituality and Gemstones. I love stones and use them in all of my practices to amplify energy, healing and understanding.

I feel an immeasurable gratitude to have the opportunity to help others awaken, and recognize their inner wisdom. I am honored to assist humans in moving towards their higher selves and their Life's purpose.
I believe that with time and dedication, one can clear the pathways in the body, mind and soul to allow for energy to move freely through us, reaching a point of unlimited creativity and manifestation.

I work from  a platform of Love and Light and continue to study in my own capacity  in order to offer myself and my clients a sustainable and holistic approach to leading a balanced and peaceful life.

"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.

“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. “

"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.

Yoga is a most incredible practical manner to transcend the illusion of forgetfulness, the forgetfulness that makes us think that we are somehow separate from it all.

The very word 'yoga' denotes 'union'.

I feel exceptionally blessed to be constantly discovering purpose, which finds expression through my passions of life coaching, yoga & poetry.

I love exploring the depths of the various layers of Being, the interplay between body, breath & mind, the harmony between stillness & dynamic movement and the joyful manner of the heart.
