About my teaching
I’ve been teaching yoga for over 10 years and, trust me, I’ll be teaching into my old age. For me teaching is an honour and a joy. Everyone has their own unique reasons for finding yoga. It tends to come to you in life when it’s most needed. As we practice together, my teachings may bring you some joy, physical benefits or support your wellbeing. Whatever your reasons for joining me, it’s a privilege to be able to create a safe space for you to discover the benefits of yoga and connect with who you really are.
The yoga I teach has quality and authenticity at its foundation. It is based on ancient principles, and I’ve trained with some of the best yoga teachers in the world. In 2011, I qualified with 200 hours from the Yoga Alliance – this was a springboard for many more qualifications since. I’ve been personally trained by the globally renowned Paul Dallaghan at his specialist academy at Samahita, Thailand. Paul was one of the very few to be personally trained by Sri Pattabhi Jois (one of the masters of yoga).
The quality of my training formed the foundation for how I teach my students today. With a little Adele sparkle added of course! With my holistic teaching style, there’s no unachievable poses or silly gimmicks – just real teaching that makes you feel great.

About my style
The relationship between student and teacher is such a precious one and can be hard to come by. My style of teaching ensures that when you practice with me you feel warm, welcomed, and comfortable enough to be completely yourself.
My practice is flexible and can be adapted to suit your needs. Don’t be afraid to come with what you’ve got, and we’ll work together to make it work for you. There’s no pretence, no expectations, no ‘shoulds’ – you’re welcome just as you are. As we go through life’s ups, downs and all the in-betweens, we’ll use yoga to go with the flow of what arises.
You’ll also find that I really am as real-as-they-come. I’m not that stick-thin girl with her legs wrapped around her head that you might have seen in the media. With me you’ll get a realness, with all my perfect imperfections, curves and wobbly bits – and I hope, in turn, you’ll feel welcomed to be your real self too.
I’m a mum to two gorgeous boys, married to my best friend, and a family girl through and through. Yet, as much as I’m a home-bird, I also have a playful and adventurous side, seeing life as a giant playground for me to explore and embrace. I think it was this part of me that first prompted me to travel the world and explore yoga and its many life teachings.
I believe in living life to the full and doing more of what gives you joy. I try to really enjoy the little things. I love spending time in nature, growing my veggies whilst getting my hands in muck, a sunrise, laughter, tickle frenzies, practical jokes. And I genuinely love people. It was the desire to love and support people to feel better about themselves physically, mentally and emotionally that first brought me to yoga. Now I can’t imagine doing anything else.
