As a health & happiness advocate, I initially turned to yoga for the same reason as most; to alleviate physical aches & tension that an active life often brings.
I experienced my first yoga class in Australia back in 2010, and was pleasantly surprised to discover not only a vast improvement to my physical health, but also to my inner well-being.
It turns out that the rumours are true: Yoga really is a full body & mind workout.
“Let the beauty of what you LOVE
be what you do.”
I knew that I wanted to share this game changing experience with the world. What really had me hooked was that fact that yoga is universal, it doesn't discriminate age, race, or ability. Instead it welcomes & unites absolutely anyone & everyone, (especially the inflexible). It's a traditional practice that also brings about self healing of mind & body without a single negative side effect!
I returned to the UK to complete a Drama & Theatre degree and continued to work multiple, demanding jobs in hospitality, customer service & the corporate sector. I secured a promising graduate position as an Operations & support Manager in the logistics sector and began to climb to corporate ladder, (logistics is nothing to do with a Drama degree, I know!)
Although grateful for the work experience and skills acquired along the way, I found myself feeling extremely unfulfilled in my career. It was when my own health began to suffer, at one point falling asleep at the wheel after working a night shift, I very quickly realised that no amount of financial success could be exchanged for the wealth of health.
Overnight, I decided to risk stability in pursuit of my passion. I flew out to Thailand to complete 200 hours of yoga teacher training at The Vikasa Yoga Academy, Koh Samui.
I graduated as a hatha yoga instructor with a new found knowledge in yoga anatomy, philosophy, practicum, but most importantly with a clear vocation for the well-being & happiness of others. My course, which is recognised globally by The Yoga Alliance, was very much a life changing experience, both personally and professionally.
My core values are to offer yoga as welcoming, nurturing and empowering experience. I wish to make healthy living an enjoyable, accessible & sociable lifestyle for all. I strive to empower others to recognise their own limitless potential in life, both on and off the mat. I hope for indivduals to be well equipped with effective, holistic techniques to ease the daily stresses & challenges that life can bring. I strongly believe that there is no 'one-size-fits-all' approach to yoga practice, & often encourage students to enjoy a unique experience within this universal tradition.
I am now happily devoted to teaching holistic classes across various gyms & studios in the East Midlands. I also devise & host workshops & have delved into retreats both in UK & Europe. I maintain regular practice as a teacher & seek to constantly evolve for each and every one of my students.
Thank you for your interest in my story so far. I hope to play a valuable part in your unique story soon.
Love & Light,
