My passion for bodywork started at the age of four. After studying ballet, gymnastics and tap, modern and ballroom dancing, I discovered Yoga when I was pregnant with my youngest daughter. After her birth, I signed up for an Ashtanga course that was being organised at the Sports Club which I used to run and manage. I frequently attended Bikram Yoga classes as well as regularly running and kickboxing. I then decided to take my new-found passion a step further and signed up for a Yoga course with the School of Natural Holistic Sciences and successfully qualified with a diploma to teach Beginners Yoga. This was soon followed by an intensive Sun Power Yoga Teacher Training course in Spain, where I discovered the real meaning of yoga and indeed started a journey of self-discovery.
Yoga has helped me to lose weight and tone up. It has cured me of a very painful hip condition, and it complements other physical activities I engage in. Yoga has given me the confidence and inner strength to inspire others and that is my objective for every yoga lesson; to instil confidence, strength and inspiration in my students. My clients have included people of various fitness levels, different body shapes and with an array of ailments, such as back pain, arthritis, thyroid problems. I have also helped my students to manage lifelong conditions such as Parkinson’s disease, fibromyalgia and scoliosis and have personally witnessed how Yoga helps relieve and in some cases cure such conditions. Most of all I have learnt how Yoga is not just what happens on the mat but is a way of uniting your mind, body and breath. Uniting in Yoga.
My yogic journey is a continuous one and has become my way of life. Over the years I have continued to learn about different types of yoga, attending different classes and workshops, all of which have subsequently flavoured the classes I teach. I have also since trained in Kundalini Yoga, Crystal Healing, Relaxation Therapy, Aromatherapy, Kinesiology and Meridian Psychotherapy
