About the teacher
I have practised yoga and meditation as a student for over 30yrs. My initial classes were in Iyengar Yoga which is a structured and disciplined form of yoga, later moving to a more fluid and intuitive movement practice evolving from yoga as taught by John Stirk http://johnstirk.com and more recently Donna Farhi https://www.donnafarhi.co.nz/. Different forms of yoga have suited me at different stages of my life and I have been curious about exploring the richness and variety of the practice – from the physical to the more subtle – taking many classes in different styles and many CPD trainings with different teachers.
I have taught yoga since 2005, adding specialist trainings in Yoga Nidra, Meditation and Restorative Yoga to a primary Scaravelli-inspired yoga training. I teach a restorative yoga class based on the training with US teacher/author Judith Hansen Lasater https://www.judithhansonlasater.com. Recently (May 2020) I completed a Pranayama (breathing) intensive training with her online.
My yoga teaching is also informed by an appreciation of Pilates. The attention to detail and safe/healthy movement are compatible with my approach to teaching yoga.
I am also a fully qualified and UKCP Accredited Integrative Psychotherapist & Counsellor seeing clients in NW10 and NW6.
