The thing I love about yoga is that it can be so many things for so many people. I still remember going to my first yoga class over 20 years ago, not quite sure what to expect, but being totally captivated by this new type of movement. I have always enjoyed being quite physical, but this was about more than just exercise – it was a whole workout for my body, mind and spirit. I left that class feeling lighter – physically, mentally and emotionally. That’s when I realised I’d discovered something special.

Today, I try to incorporate that same sense of completeness in my classes. Yoga is a physical practice, but only as much as you want it to be. In my classes, I encourage you to listen to your needs and to find your own edge. Maybe today is the day you want to try a headstand or a flying crow – or maybe today is the day for lingering in child’s pose. Finding that connection between your body and mind can be incredibly calming and also wonderfully liberating.

As well as holding my 200-hour Yoga Alliance teacher qualification, I am working towards my 500-hour Advanced Teacher Training accreditation. I have a special interest in working with teens and young people and have trained with the Teen Yoga Foundation to become a Teen Yoga specialist. I also hold a Level 3 First Aid certificate and am fully DBS-checked.


Mindful Flow Yoga

Yoga is a great way to stay in shape but this is more than just a physical exercise class. There will be plenty of dynamic vinyasa flow sequences to challenge you physically, but we will also explore what effect these poses have on the mind and the emotions too. I always give plenty of modifications so you can take the class at your own pace depending on your energy levels that day. This is an uplifting, energising class that is suitable for all levels. A great way to start your week!

Teen Yoga

As a trained Teen Yoga specialist, I have designed my teen yoga classes specifically with young people in mind. The classes are fun and friendly and give young people the chance to explore the benefits of yoga in a safe and supported space. I use a combination of movement and mindfulness, as well as partner work and games, to encourage a sense of connection with the body and mind. Whether it’s to improve flexibility, build strength or to find a moment of calm after a stressful day at school, these classes will provide a much-needed mood boost for the student. Everybody is welcome, no experience needed, for ages 12-18.

Classes run in 6-week blocks during term-time:

£7 for a drop-in session

£36 for a 6-week pass

Tuesday 4.30pm - 5.30pm Studio 2
