500 RYT Yoga Teacher
I discovered the physical practice of yoga at 16 years old. My meditative practice, however, began in my early teenage years, guided by leading researchers at Kings College in London. I suffered with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome in my early teenage years, and the meditation practice provided me with an all round positive transformation.
My yoga teacher styles reflect on my own journey, with every class seeking a balance between the effort of asana (pose) and movement, with an awareness of breath and relaxation. My intention is to create a space that feels safe, nurturing, and that allows clients to leave feeling physically and mentally rejuvenated.
My flow-based practice aims to unite body and consciousness with rhythmic breath and dynamic movement, building physical strength, and a deep connection between mind, body and soul.
I studied my month intensive 200hr and 300hr Yoga Teacher Training with Green Yoga International, with a focus on Vinyasa, Hatha, Ashtanga and Yin styles. My Vinyasa classes, translated as ‘to place in a special way’, are individually tailored to every body, ability, and daily need. I understand that every skeleton is different, and my practice is rooted in the awareness of individual differences. I also hold a Yoga Alliance registered 'Yoga for Injuries' qualification, a British Wheel of Yoga 'Yoga for Special People' CPD, as well as a Emergency First Aid at Work, & Emergency Outdoor First Aid.
I encourage everyone to be curious and to listen intently to their own body, finding what works best. This also channels through the intentions behind my Yin classes. Yin yoga consist of poses being held for much longer periods, often a floor-based practice. It works in to the connective tissues of the body, known as Fascia. Yin helps the body to restore range of motion, revitalises the tissues of the body, as well as taking the mind in to a much deeper meditative state. Every posture becomes finely tuned, and this can then be taken through to a more dynamic practice, forming a good foundation for alignment that suits individuals, and can be taken in to any further practice.
