I have studied with many teachers across the country and have been teaching since 2012. I have a British Wheel of Yoga Diploma in teaching yoga (Level 4 on the National Framework), taught by Andrea Newman (now part of the SWYA). I came to yoga in January of 2009 mid-way through my bachelor's degree with an inquisitive attitude and a stiff back. I remember feeling an unbelievable sense of freedom of movement and openness in my head and heart after that first class; it was fantastic and I couldn't wait to find out more. I was soon attending a minimum of 6 hours of classes a week and going to workshops on the weekends. All my classes have a Hatha Yoga framework which includes static and dynamic asanas (postures), breath awareness and relaxation. My classes are designed to be suitable for all levels - providing modifications for those who want them and further development for students who want to be challenged. I always aim to provide a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere to practice in and a safe space to release tension and alleviate stress. I provide safe practice, good alignment, body awareness, and regularly incorporate the use of yoga breathing techniques into my classes. Due to strong Iyengar influences throughout my yoga journey I sometimes use props to help students reach their full potential in a pose.
I run small group classes (max 6 people) on Wednesday mornings at The Old Rectory Clinic where I can focus on individual and tailored support.
The Old Rectory Clinic in Iron Acton is conveniently located with easy access from Yate, Chipping Sodbury, Frampton Cotterell, Coalpit Heath, Winterbourne, Westerleigh, Thornbury and the surrounding areas.

I've practiced yoga for many years (after finding myself drawn to it after suffering from back problems). Very quickly after my first class I became hooked and noticed the many benefits, both physically and mentally. I finally decided to fly to India to do my yoga teacher training, during my time there I could fully immerse myself into the spirituality of the practice.
