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.
Along my 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. My approach is mostly influenced by my ongoing work and relationship with Yoga therapist Zoë Martin. During my first class with Zoë, I knew yoga was something I had to have more of in my life and it wasn’t long before I knew I would become a Yoga teacher.
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.
I have been exploring yoga with Zoë for over ten years during which time I have also been inspired by other teachers notably Sheila Baker and Jane Craggs.
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.
Kind, attentive & focused, Helen is a born teacher with the unique ability to listen to your needs and translate them into the perfect, bespoke yoga practice. Wonderful!
