In 2000 I travelled to Australia to dedicate 9 months to becoming a Classical Hatha Yoga teacher. I have had the joy and privilege of teaching ever since, whilst also having the pleasure of remaining a student and learning from deeply inspiring teachers without whom I certainly wouldn’t be the teacher I have become.
Yoga brings me an incredible tool for self-care, whether to help me manage physical pain, the mental stresses of life, a changing body through pregnancy, living through the grief of losing my father, my practice has remained a great source of stability.
I often say that for me practicing yoga is like a holiday from my own mind. The effects of practice reach way beyond the mat, and give me an all around sense of well-being. This is what leads me to feel so passionate about sharing the gift of Yoga with everyone, irrelevant of age, health and social circumstances.
In 2018, i returned to the States with 2 yoga teacher colleagues (Jo Duffin , Suzanne Galfredi) to personally train with Matthew Sanford and the Mind Body Solutions team. We were trained to start offering the Opening Yoga to Everyone professional training in adaptive yoga to teachers across Europe.
Our work together is under the umbrella of Mind Body Connections Europe ( https://www.mindbodyconnectionseurope.org/ ) and in direct lineage of Matthew Sanford’s teachings. In 2019, we are offering teacher trainings in Milan (It), Stoke Mandeville (UK), birthplace of the paralympics, and Sweden.
I live in Marlow, Bucks with my gorgeous daughter Maellys.
