I have been greatly influenced by many teachers including Swami Sivananda and his teachings on yoga, Elena Brower and her life coaching trainings, and Shiva Rea and Jason Crandell and their teachings on Vinyasa. My practice and teachings are also informed by Pixie Lighthorse and her trainings on Earth Medicine and healing, and Cecily Milne and the Yoga Detour team. I have a Bachelor of Science Degree in Psychology where I specialized in Human Development and find myself coming back to these studies now as a yoga teacher.

I am originally from Halifax in the UK, and moved to France 10 years ago and founded Yoga Beach House. You'll find me either teaching in the studio or on the beach with my faithful dog Harry who snores through all my classes!

My classes are heartfelt. When you practice with me you will feel more connected to your body but also to your mind and to nature itself, allowing for a more rounded practice as you become more cognizant of your connection to all. I believe the practice of yoga is for everybody and that it can have a profound effect on everybody, through yoga we can learn how to love ourselves and each other more wholesomely, the practice of yoga leads to peace.
