I am a 500 hour Yoga Alliance certified teacher, with a wealth of experience teaching classes, workshops and retreats all over the world, most recently for the fantastic Yoga on a Shoestring. I’m currently travelling, teaching and practising yoga as I go. A self-confessed yoga geek, I recently graduated from Forrest Yoga Advanced Teacher Training, an experience which has invigorated my practice and my life. I am passionate about sharing the holistic benefits of yoga, and consider it a profoundly healing practice.
My Personal Yoga Journey
Yoga was a game-changer for me, at a time when I was going through a lot of personal turmoil. It gave me a space to become fully present, connected with my body and immersed in the beauty of movement and breathing. Teaching yoga is the greatest joy. It is an absolute privilege to watch students as they grow in confidence, strength, openness and acceptance. Many of us have little opportunity in our daily lives to take our focus inwards, and explore without judgement whatever comes up. Yoga provides that sacred space.
My Yoga Classes
I teach creative, playful classes of vinyasa yoga, a style in which you flow from pose to pose in a dynamic, fluid sequence. I integrate Forrest-inspired yoga elements into my classes, particularly the emphasis on deep core strength and some longer holds of postures, which allow students to really feel into their magic.
I am inspired by the understanding that when we challenge ourselves physically, we connect with our inner strength. I aim to meet students where they are, and help them to move forward, whether that’s towards more openness, more strength or more balance. No goal is too superficial or too deep. Whether you want to master arm balances, or find inner peace, I want to help you to get there.
Yoga Let Loose
I co-founded Yoga Let Loose with my partner Tom (also an awesome yoga teacher!). We lead events and workshops focused on yoga and adding in travel, adventure and fun.

A little December 2020 update
I’m not teaching yoga at the moment, thanks to the pandemic, various stressful life events and starting a part time PhD in Education alongside my full time job at a university. I still love yoga and practise every day (it’s the only way I’m keeping sane right now!). I hope that when the time comes to get back out in the world teaching again, I’ll have even more lovely stuff to offer.
