Our Yoga teachers
I’ve been practicing yoga for about 10 years and having a busy schedule and a physical job, it is a vital part of my daily life. Working as a therapist, so many of the people I see for typical aches and pains would benefit greatly from a regular yoga practice and it was this belief that took me to The White Lotus Foundation in California to first study Therapeutic Yoga and then to complete my Yoga Teacher Training, accredited through The Yoga Alliance.
I later returned to White Lotus to complete the advanced teacher training program. My journey has also lead me to India to explore Scaravelli inspired yoga with the wonderful Helen Noakes and to Thailand for meditation and Yin Yoga teacher training with Sarah Powers. Having trained in so many modalities I have a strong knowledge of anatomy and the moving body. I bring these skills in to my own yoga practice and that of others I work with. I believe that anybody can do yoga.
You don’t have to be super flexible, skinny, bendy or able to touch your toes! Beginners, those who are out of practice or more experienced yoga practitioners wishing to work on their depth and alignment, can take my classes. Men, especially those new to yoga usually find having a series of 1-1 sessions with a male teacher helps them to feel more confident to later go on to join a class.
