As a life long lover of movement and creativity I have spent much of my life exploring bodywork disciplines, travelling and practicing yoga.
Having discovered yoga whilst training as a dancer it soon became an integral part of my life, developing alongside my career as a performer and, perhaps more importantly, my own personal learning and exploration.
I originally qualified as a Iyengar yoga teacher in 1995 and since then I have continued to study different forms of yoga and movement practices with many great teachers from many diverse backgrounds including Geeta Iyengar, Rajmani Tigunait and Sri K. Pattahbi Jois, as well as being self taught and working with more unconventional teachers, most noticeably Miranda Tufnell and the late Gill Clarke.
I teach a somatic style of yoga and movement that stems from a deep listening within, so that the body’s knowing can be heard, felt and valued. My approach is both traditional and innovative. I am inspired by creative sequencing of postures and transitions, that quietly and sequentially unfold into dynamic flows, to help draw students and teachers safely beyond perceived limitations and closer to true potential and confidence. This involves a deep breath centred practice of movement, asana and meditation with a sense of devotion and playfulness.
As well as teaching open classes in London and being a co-founder of triyoga’s advanced teacher training programme, I also offer one to one tuition, yoga workshops and retreats in the U.K and abroad.
I have written yoga books as well as being a contributing writer:
- Breathe – simple techniques for a calmer, happier life – Quadrille Publishing
- Yoga, Simple Steps – A Practical Guide to Yoga Postures – Abbeydale Press
- Astanga Yoga, a In-depth Guide to the Primary Series – Anness Books
