My journey onto the mat…

My yoga journey began in 2009, I have always wanted to know more even to this day. I attended my first class many years ago but it took me a few years to find a style and a class that suited me. It was in 2013 that I regularly started attending classes, mostly Hatha.

I was drawn to yoga as I loved that you only need your body to practice. I loved how I could improve my strength and flexibility through asanas. I also loved the calmness that it brought to my mind and awareness that it brought to my life. Over the last few years I have noticed how much yoga has helped change my attitude to life, in a much more positive and balance way.

I have found much insight from delving into the yogic scriptures and I have only scratched the surface of what knowledge they hold. I have found that my whole being has been adapted and has started working in a more balanced way since studying them.

I studied 200hrs YTT in Hatha over a year, graduating in 2018 with CYS Glasgow. Our practice during the course was strongly Ashtanga based but we covered a wide range of styles.

Since qualifying I have been practicing and teaching regularly, developing my own style working with dynamic movement, the lunar cycle and the seasons, with a Hatha foundation. My practice on a weekly basis falls either on Full or New Moon which tend to be slower with focus on the lower body, the hips and I practice Sun flows in the weeks between; these tend to be faster paced focusing on building strength, bringing energy into the body and working on the upper body, the shoulders. I like to bring in postures that flow with the seasons too, which help to balance the meridians, the energy centres in the body, which can become out of balance through the seasons.

I feel with yoga I have so much more to learn, to explore and to share.

I like to create a practice which allows you to observe, to bring awareness to the body as a whole, so that your mind, body, day and week flows with grace and ease.

I look forward to it sharing with you all. Om Shanti.

My advice to students is…

“Connect and listen to yourself, only move into a posture that feels good to you and rest when you need to.”

“If you are concerned about the world, the first thing you need to do is transform yourself into as joyful being.” – Sadhguru
