After practising for several years I began to appreciate the many different forms yoga can take and became increasingly drawn to the more dynamic physical styles of yoga such as ashtanga vinyasa and jivamukti yoga.
An appreciation that the physical poses are just a tiny part of yoga came to me soon after when I realised that I was undergoing subtle changes in many different parts of my life thanks to yoga.
I embarked on a teacher training course with YogaLondon in 2012, determined to learn more about yoga and share my passion for it with others.
Over the years I have been influenced by many wonderful teachers and I believe that yoga offers so much, it is hard to leave any class without being touched in some way by it – I give special thanks to Erin Pritchard, Stuart Gilchrist, Celeste Pereira, Uma Dinsmore-Tuli and Laura Gate-Eastley who have all influenced me and my teaching style.
- Desikachar, Heart of Yoga
Through my teaching I want to pass on that joy to people of all ages - from toddlers who are still working out where their toes are let alone how to touch them through to retirees who through yoga are finally seeing their toes again or learning to look beyond them. Having used yoga to help me through the birth of my two sons and cope with the mental and physical stresses of working motherhood I have a strong belief in the power of yoga to help with the challenges life throws at you and I am particularly interested in helping people overcome these obstacles. I have just given birth to my second boy and yoga has been instrumental in preparing me both mentally and physically for the birth whislt helping with my postnatal recovery.
Yoga has the ability to bring joy and light to everyone’s lives, whatever stage or place they are in, and it is this message that I aim to bring to life in my teaching.
