London, United Kingdom
I grew up living near the water, and I suppose because of this I’ve always been drawn to the elements; water, wind, fire, earth and sky. I’ve found these elements present in every place that I’ve been enticed to call home, which is perhaps why I feel most at home in my yoga practice, which is so interwoven with the elements.
First drawn to yoga as a philosophy student over 25 years ago, yoga has been instrumental in finding balance in my own life. It was like finding a map to better understand how to be in the world; with myself, my body, and in relationship with others. My studies of yoga include a variety of internationally renowned teachers and schools, most notably the Jivamukti and Iyengar yoga methods, which I’ve been practicing for over 15 years.
I teach the Jivamukti method, and this includes alignment cues, awareness of the breath, and plenty of music. Hands-on adjustments are a unique aspect of my classes intended to give the practitioner a better understanding of correct alignment, the energetics of asana and an awareness of the body in space.
Above all else, as a yoga teacher, a Rolfer and a human being, I aim to create a space in the world where we celebrate our individuality and co-exist with compassion.
