My interest in the holistic approach of yoga led me to complete the British Wheel of Yoga (BWY) Foundation Course in 2012. I continued my studies by enrolling on the BWYQ Level 4 teacher training course, realising that I could share my passion and knowledge with others. I worked in the Early Years sector for 24 years, with children aged from birth to 11+. In 2004, I qualified as a children's yoga teacher through Yoga Bugs and had a wonderful time combining my two passions! I have been a full time yoga teacher since 2014, offering weekly public classes, private classes and yoga in schools.
I have been practicing yoga for 20 years. Physically, I am fitter, stronger and more flexible - my body feels freer, and I am more in tune with it than ever before. Yoga encourages me to nurture my body, to be more conscious about what I eat, what I do. It has become a way of life, not just a way to keep fit, and the more I practice, the more I notice the positive effects on my life, both on and off the mat. As a person who is not naturally flexible, I am aware of the possible limitations and concerns you may have, so I pay particular attention to ensure my classes are inclusive, by offering support, advice and encouragement to make sure everyone feels welcome and at ease.
I can't recall when I first discovered meditation, but I know that I began to formally meditate in 1999. My BWY course has furthered my knowledge and understanding of the benefits and physical effects of mindfully meditating, counterbalancing the physical symptoms of stress. I believe the relaxation side of yoga is really important, and recognise that students benefit from this as much as the physical practice.
