I started practicing Yoga at the age of 14, I was in a dance school at the time and my love for dance transitioned swiftly over to yoga, it has been part of my life now for the last 20 years and I am so grateful that it has.
I studied my yoga teacher training whilst living in Canada, however, with a full time job in the fashion industry as a designer, I was never planning on teaching, I was just eager to know more. As soon as I completed my 200 hour Teacher Training I knew I needed to share what I had learned and have since taught yoga alongside my design career.
I have trained in restorative yoga and completed my 200 hours in Kundalini yoga, both practices I found when I was diagnosed with adrenal fatigue after 14 years of chronic gut dysbiosis. I am always humbled by the body’s ability to know exactly what is right for us, we just have to be willing to listen. Yoga has taught me so much more than how to move my body, it changes my mood, makes me breathe bigger, slows my racing mind down, releases built up emotions (I’ve cried countless times on my mat, I’ve also laughed equal amounts on there too!) and most of all its made me stop sweating the small stuff.
Yoga is really not about flexibility or touching your toes, it about embracing what you learn about yourself every single time you roll out your mat.

Running – its a bit of a love hate thing for me

I’m not much of a drinker, I’ll have the odd G&T but I’d rather have a cuppa tea (herbal!)
