I started teaching yoga in 2010 and have been practicing for nearly 20 years.
My yoga classes focus on mindful, meditative movements, breath awareness, the therapeutic application of yoga to the individual, and time for relaxation. Adapting the practice to suit the needs of the students is a central principle in my classes. I strive to make yoga spaces welcoming to all, regardless of identity, shape, size, age or experience of yoga.
I teach general hatha yoga, yin and chair-based group classes and see clients for one to one yoga therapy. I also hold space for monthly women’s circles, and teach courses on yoga history and philosophy.
I started practicing yoga regularly as a student at Leeds University. I moved back up north a few years ago and am happy to now live in Hebden Bridge. I trained for five years training in the Krishnamacharya tradition, as a yoga therapist with Paul Harvey in Bristol, with Norman Blair in yin yoga, and Uma Dinsmore Tuli in pregnancy yoga. I am currently a board member and tutor on the Yogacampus Yoga Teacher Training 200 hour diploma course. I have an MA in the Traditions of Yoga and Meditation and am perusing a PhD at SOAS.
