I began to practice yoga from then on and then decided to start my British Wheel of Yoga Hatha Yoga teacher training in 2015, qualifying in 2019. I also studied functional movement with Yoga Reloaded.
I qualified last year as a Chakra Dancing and Creative meditation facilitatior, and as an Energy Medicine Yoga Foundation Course Practitioner @EMYoga. I am looking forward to beginning the advanced training in 2022.
I am loving the learning about energy and Traditional Chinese Medicine techniques, combining this with yoga and how this powerful combination can help us to become more aware of what is happening in our bodies and how to support our own physical, mental and emotional wellbeing
To keep my learning ongoing this year I am on the Eden Energy Medicine Practitioners course and in June I am taking a 50 hour Yin training with the Yoga Reloaded team and sequencing course with Jo Phee.
I love to watch the way when people come into a class and begin to listen to their own bodies, to understand what they need. The support network available, the connections made by yogaering together.
Coming from a dancing background as a child, it was a given that we strived to look near enough exactly the same as we moved and performed, this taught me many great lessons,( though from then to now knowing left and right can still be problematic for me:)
I love the way in which yoga gives you the freedom to move and listen to which way suits you most. One size does not fit all. Giving cues and instruction is obviously part of teaching, but learning is watching and listening to the students and their interpretation of the how's and whys and what feels right for each one of them.
My classes are all currently on zoom. Please message me or check my FB page for timetables and schedules of returning to studio based classes alongside zoom classes.
