I have been practicing yoga since 2010. At first I joined lunchtime classes with the inspiring Julie Bealey and I loved the sense of calm and wellbeing I experienced at the end of the classes.
Over the years my yoga practice became an important part of my life. I completed the British Wheel of Yoga Foundation course in 2015, followed by a 2-year Triyoga London Teacher Training diploma (390 hours). I was very fortunate to study with Anna Ashby and Joey Miles. I am a Yoga Alliance Professionals registered teacher.
I teach a slow flow form of yoga. I love sharing with others what I have learned and it is truly rewarding to introduce new people to yoga or to see people’s practice evolve over time. My classes invite self-exploration and encourage practice which is sustainable. I welcome students of all ages and abilities in my classes by providing alternatives and encouraging students to make personal choices.
I also remain a yoga student, continuing with my personal practice and taking part in various workshops and courses to further develop my knowledge. Some of the recent programmes include ‘Making practice inclusive’ with Dana Falsetti, 'Teaching yoga to people with disabilities' with JoAnn Lyons, and a one-year 'Deconstruct to Reconstruct' course with Alexandria Crow.
I have also immensely enjoyed studying with Mimi Kuo-Deemer in her mindfulness and Qigong for yoga teachers immersions, and with Jason Crandell in his sequencing training.
I teach hatha yoga classes in Bude, North Cornwall, and the surrounding areas.
