My Yoga Journey
I took my first yoga class in America in 2004 to see for myself what all the hype was about, it was love at first sun salutation! I am not a naturally flexible person and even though I was totally rubbish at yoga when I started, I just couldn't stop because it made me feel so good in every way. Throughout the years I've studied various forms of yoga including, Vinyasa, Ashtanga, Iyengar, Jivamukti and Forrest Yoga. I completed my first teacher training in 2009 and my second training in 2014 which qualified me as a British Wheel of Yoga teacher. I'm deeply honoured to be registered as a Senior Yoga Teacher with Yoga Alliance. I'm also trained in Thai Yoga Massage and believe in order to be a great teacher I must never stop being a student.
I feel so blessed to have been able to devote myself to being a full time yoga teacher for a time. But, I eventually decided to reduce my teaching schedule and return to University to complete a second degree in Occupational Therapy. My first job as an Occupational Therapist is completing a PhD which is researching loneliness and the need to build community. I'm so excited to be able to incorporate my passion for yoga with my job as a therapist.
