As a mum juggling a high pressure marketing job with part-time yoga teaching, demanding family commitments and trying to maintain some semblance of a social life, yoga has been the key to keeping me sane, balanced and positive. It also became a crucial tool in winning my battle with cancer.

The benefits of yoga have been truly transformative for me and I’m passionate about teaching, inspiring and sharing these with others in a way that pays homage to the teachers who have guided and helped me.

Teaching a dynamic vinyasa flow, I am focused on providing a challenging but accessible experience for students.

Classes are designed carefully around specific students’ needs, to ignite a level of positive change, leaving you balanced and connected on both a physical and energetic level. As such, they are creative, intelligent and progressive; coordinating movement with breath, as you flow from one pose to the next.

This moving meditation brings multiple physical and mental benefits: releasing toxins, burning calories and re-energising the body whilst simultaneously relaxing mental tension and releasing energy blockages from the body.

Expect to gain increased strength, flexibility and mental focus as well as feeling energised, calm and uplifted overall.

I am a devoted student of the incredible Alessandra Pecorella and certified teacher with Yoga Alliance UK. Having completed my Vinyasa Flow Yoga TTRYT 200hrs in 2015, I am now due to graduate my 500 hrs teacher training in 2019 as well as an apprenticeship, with Alessandra, at the Aditya Yoga School.
