The way a yoga class left me feeling was a combination of feeling blissful, strong, stretched, more flexible in not just the body but the mind too and ultimately made me feel relaxed. For many years I’d suffered with anxiety and bouts of mild depression and found that yoga helped massively with calming the anxiety and easing some of the discomfort from the battles in my mind. I also struggled with chronic migraine having two or three days free from pain a month but thanks to yoga I now have perhaps one every couple of months.
For over a decade I have practiced under the guidance of some truly inspirational teachers from different yoga traditions and after at least 10 years of regular practice and workshops I decided that the natural progression for me was to train to teach. I began the BWY Foundation Course with Jackie Quayle which led me to be accepted to study under Sarah Beck for the BWY 500 hour Level 4 teacher training diploma. I spent 3.5 years studying with Sarah which was an amazing experience providing not only an excellent standard of teacher training but in depth teachings of meditation, pranayama and yoga philosophy too.
My teaching style is constantly evolving but I try to bring to my classes and retreats what can so often be lost in the modern yoga classes today, and combine the asana practice with nuggets of philosophy, pranayama, mediation and mindfulness. I look forward to sharing my love and the benefits of yoga with you.
