Sit still. Ride the breath into the feeling-tone of you and feel the energy you are made of. Stillness = peace = joy = love.
I began teaching yoga in 2014 and have been a professional photographer since 2007. My background in the arts and as a full-time athlete means I have a unique take on movement and creativity. With an MA in photography and a keen eye on capturing life and documenting it to its fullest. From portraiture to the environment my relationship to photography inspires my approach to yoga and vice versa.
As a teacher I am passionate about working with people in creative ways in order for them to move through life with more ease. My personal yoga practice tells me where I am from moment to moment as a way to truly nourish and explore my wholeness.
Alongside all of this is my devotion to my family. Becoming a parent has opened my eyes to the many possibilities life has to offer… my children have been the biggest awakening in my life to date.
I am a fully certified 200 hour Yoga teacher trainer and am also qualified as a pregnancy yoga teacher. Much of my time learning and practising yoga has been spent with the wonderful Zoë Martin, who from a very early stage inspired me to teach. Since we have moved to Manchester I have also been exploring yoga with Jane Craggs. Both of these teachers have a wealth of experience and knowledge and offer a creative and compassionate inquiry into yoga and yoga therapy.
Along my educational path of yoga I have studied Viniyoga with Paul Harvey, Freedom Style Yoga with Erich Schiffmann and further therapeutic applications of Yoga with the Mohan family. I gained my diploma in Yoga teacher training with the Yoga Campus.
