Yoga. It moves me in a direction where my mind and body strive to occupy the same space. It's a place where they share the same language and where words all fit on the same page.
The practice of yoga is how I find stillness and also how I come out of stillness. Before I know it, I find my voice in places where before I was silent. It doesn't take much for this to happen. I lift my arms, I lift my heart and I lift my gaze. Through yoga we can move our lives and when life starts moving, beautiful things begin to happen.
I am passionate about delivering high quality, bespoke yoga classes for yogis who are looking to set a regular practice and bring mindfulness into their everyday.
If the idea of yoga is something you have been thinking about for sometime, or if it's something you want to try and are a bit nervous about, or if you simply want to find balance in your life then my classes are for you.
Public Yoga Classes
Publicly I teach two very different styles of yoga classes. I find the two styles a great balance for students who are wanting to deepen their practice, strengthen their mind, manage their stress or re-connect with themselves.

Online Yoga Classes
Recently, I have mindfully stepped into the world of online yoga classes. This space continues to be a work in progress and I invite you to join me on the mat in the comforts of your own home.
I am classically trained in Rajadhiraja yoga. Unlike other 'styles' of yoga, Rajadhiraja yoga is not a style of yoga as such but rather a school of yoga. Broadly speaking it is classical yoga encompassing a variety of practices designed to develop mind, body and soul. With great emphasis on correct breathing, known as pranayama, and well aligned asana practice, this practice will awaken and move prana throughout the body. Benefits can be felt on the physical, mental and emotional levels as your practice develops. You can learn more about Rajadhiraja yoga from my teacher Ganga Devi by clicking the link below.
Ground down to soar up. A gentle restorative fusion of yin and restorative yoga to ground you for the week ahead. Classes are focused around breath awareness, stillness and gentle movement to welcome mindfulness and space into the mind and body. A soothing, calming environment for yogis of all levels to soften, surrender and let go.
