I have a relaxed & open approach to teaching and use simple language and gentle encouragement to help people focus on their yoga journey, whatever that might be to them.
My passion is watching my students develop physically, mentally and emotionally. I became a Yoga teacher to try to inspire others, as I have been inspired.
Following a vinyasa style, my classes are often supported with carefully curated playlists which helps encourage students to take their practice to their own limit.
In my classes I gently guide students through strong & dynamic flows. I love to share my passion of yoga with others, believing in and embracing the many benefits that it has to offer.
As a teacher, I love seeing the progression of new students in their honeymoon of discovery on the mat. As a student, I am forever grateful for the practice.
Asana practice is like a key that unlocks a different place of strength, love & vulnerability. I share from this place of discovery and hope to inspire others to stay with their practice and find this too.

Yoga makes you feel better - that is why I love practising and teaching; it reminds us to check in with ourselves, to observe and breathe.
I am truly grateful to be able to teach and share with others what has inspired me so much over the last few years. I love seeing the positive and uplifting changes within my students, and how there is no end to how much you can grow and learn with Yoga.
