"My Yoga philosophy is not to gain flexibility of the body, but rather I support
an expansion of the mind, a strengthening of the soul and an opening of the heart."
YIN & HATHA YOGA • INTUITIVE MOVEMENT • CLASSES & WORKSHOPS
Yoga, to me, is a self love practice.
Translating as 'Union' in Sanskrit, I believe that yoga presents us with the opportunity to unionise with oneself - body, mind and spirit. Through gentle body opening, yoga acts an invitation to embrace our inner truth as we learn to face ourselves, through discomfort or resistance, with a smile.
Yoga allows us to discover where our edges are; not just physically but also emotionally and mentally. By embarking on a self loving practice of awakening asana (postures) and listening to our bodies subtle signals and cues, we develop greater self compassion, acceptance and understanding. By breathing through inner turmoil, we unveil a side of ourselves that is not only more resilient against adversity, but softer, gentler and kinder than before. Yoga teaches us to embrace ourselves during each transient moment and it is this philosophy that can benefit our daily lives.
My teaching style is intuitive, animalistic, playful and fun. I don't believe that every body is designed in the same way and therefore my yoga teaching applauds each person's individuation, intuition and instinct.
Yoga allows us to accept and embrace the differences and idiosyncratic nature of our bodies with admiration, love and ease. With gratitude for the ancient teachings of Yoga, learning to soften the 'rules' of how yoga should be practiced is, in my experience, an important aspect of self trust, belief and discovery. As my teacher Bernie Clarke shares "We don't use the body to get into the pose. We use the pose to get into the body."
MEDITATION & RELAXATION
Meditation allows us to soothe our nervous systems and take a sacred pause from our busy lives. Learning to relax into a position of meditation can often be the hardest part for many of us. Honouring our resistance with self-love and compassion allows us to melt deeper into a meditative state with inner kindness, patience and ease.
It is my privilege to share handwritten meditations from the soul throughout my teachings; complimenting yoga and cacao healing. Being an Artist with a vivid imagination, my meditative practices often include delicate poetry and sacred storytelling which allow our minds to drift into a land of deep rest, repair and relaxation with gentle guidance.

1 TO 1 SESSIONS
Would you like tailored guidance for your yoga or meditation experience? Whether you don't feel confident going to group classes or prefer personalised postures, a solo yoga session allows you to set a specific intention, work on your individual goals and receive undivided love, care and attention.
PRIVATE YOGA CLASSES
Similar to a 1-1 session, you're welcome to organize a group that are interested in learning about the benefits of yoga or meditation, within the comfort of your home or the virtual space. Rally a couple of friends together as you embark on an adventure of wellness as a collective team.
BENEFITS OF A SOLO SESSION
FEEL SAFE AND SECURE
It's important that we feel safe and secure when embarking on healing practices, so the magic can take place. Having a private session allows you to melt into your own private, safe and cosy space with comfort and ease.
FOCUS ON YOUR GOALS
When working 1-1, your personalised goals are front and centre. Whether you want to gain more flexibility or a deeper mind-body connection, private sessions are tailored so that you can truly feel your own progress.
There is nothing better than somebody really seeing you and accepting you exactly as you are. With undivided attention, each practice is carefully dedicated to your individual level and tailored throughout to suit your needs.
I love to support you!
As your personalised guide, I'm on hand to assist you, advise you and care for your individual needs in any way that supports your yoga & meditation journey.
