I have been practicing yoga on and off for 15 years, coming to it initially from a workout perspective. Following a life-changing trip to the Himalayan Yoga Institute in 2011, I decided to leave my job as an Assistant Buyer for The Disney Store and deepen my knowledge of yoga. In 2012, I became a certified teacher in Bali with WLYA – The Wise Living Yoga Academy (affiliated to The Yoga Institute of Santacruz, Mumbai, India – the world’s oldest organized yoga institution) and came back to set up my own studio in Somerset, UK. I now teach group classes at various top yoga centres and corporations in and around London and private one-to-ones. I am also currently the yoga instructor for the Harlequins rugby team. I also teach internationally at resorts and, along with 2 school friends, am the co-founder of a Yoga and Photography Retreat company called Soulfood London.
I cater the type of yoga I teach to the needs of each individual. However, my public classes involve an innovative and forever changing style of dynamic vinyasa flow. Although extremely fast-paced at times, I am a perfectionist when it comes to correct body alignment, the synchronisation of movement and breath and the importance of a sumptuous, meditative relaxation. My classes are down-to-earth, fun, creative and challenging, but at the same time accessible, maintaining the philosophy that ‘yoga is for all’.
I am a proud Ambassador for Battersea, Sweaty Betty and the wonderfully Organic and Fair Trade coconut water, Coco Zumi.
When I am not on the mat, I am at the sewing machine. I have a textiles business called Shanti Living, selling a range of goods, from hand-made yoga bags, relaxation eye masks, bespoke clothing and furniture. My textiles are available in our online boutique (here), and various London yoga centres including: The Life Centre, Indaba and Yoga Haven.
