I began practicing yoga in 1990 and (apart from a short break around the birth of my third child) have practiced continuously ever since. After 15 years of Iyengar yoga practice, however, a chance Ashtanga class in 2007 changed both my practice and the direction of my life. A teaching apprenticeship with Debbie Blunden and teacher training with John Scott (Sri K. Pattabhi Jois Certified) eventually followed. In 2017, I travelled to Mysore to study with Sharath Jois for the first time (but not the last, I hope). Currently, I am training as a yoga therapist with The Minded Institute.
I am profoundly grateful to my teachers Debbie Blunden, Eileen Gauthier, Greg Nardi, David Keil, Lucy Scott, and Hamish Hendry for sharing their knowledge and insight, and for being a constant inspiration – and for the support of my husband and children, who put up with a lot…!

My teaching follows the traditional Ashtanga method, which emphasises ‘tristhana’ – breath, bandha and focused attention – to achieve self-transformation through practice. Do come! I look forward to sharing this wonderful practice with you! :)

The next Assisted Self-Practice beginners course runs from 10 January to 28 February (more details on the events page).
Beginners course start time is 7.00pm.
Assisted self practice start time (for students already familiar with self practice) is 5.45-6.15pm. The opening chant is at 6.00pm.
All self-practice students will need to finish their practice by 8.00pm.

The beginners guided Ashtanga class time remains unchanged (8.00pm-9.15pm). This class is suitable for complete beginners and those with more experience. We focus on breaking down key asana techniques and modifications, with the aim of making the practice accessible to everyone, as well as good practice for both avoiding and working with injuries. This class is also great for those returning to yoga after a break, and those who just enjoy a slower, more relaxed class.
