Originally influenced by the sequencing of Vinyasa, and with a keen interest in anatomy and how our bodies function, I combine innovative movement with traditional yoga poses, creating mindful full body flows to improve mobility, stability and strength. As well as empowering you to discover how your body should move, I aim to provide the tools to sustain movement for the long term - whatever your age, ability or current experience.

Yoga and movement have massively benefited my mental health and I actively promote that this practice is more than just physical. Spending time on my mat, focusing on the movement and physical sensations, emphasises the importance of being present in the moment and finding a sense of peace. Through a consistent practice, I have improved my quality of sleep and social functioning, enhanced my spiritual wellbeing and reduced symptoms of anxiety and depression.

I like to think of myself as living proof of the amazing physical and mental benefits of this practice. I most definitely practice what I preach!
