I am a 500 hour Yoga Alliance certified teacher living in Nottingham, with experience teaching classes, workshops and retreats all over the world, most recently for the fantastic Yoga on a Shoestring.
A self-confessed yoga geek, I graduated in 2016 from Frog Lotus Yoga International’s Advanced Yoga Teacher Training and in 2018 from Forrest Yoga‘s Advanced Teacher Training. These have both inspired and invigorated my yoga teaching, and I now aim for a style which is non-dogmatic, playful and nourishing for body and mind.
I am passionate about sharing the holistic benefits of yoga, and consider it a healing practice.
My Personal Yoga Journey
Yoga was a game-changer for me, at a time when I was going through a lot of challenges (many of which if you read back through old posts on this blog you will see me working through). Yoga and meditation 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 a 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 space.
My Yoga Classes
Most of the time 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 longer holds of postures.
I also teach yin yoga on occasion, a practice that was my first yoga love.
A little 2021 update
I’m not teaching yoga at the moment as I’ve started a part time PhD in Education alongside my full time job in Nottingham. 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 restart teaching, I’ll have even more lovely stuff to offer.
In the meantime when I have chance, I’m focusing on creating yoga teaching resources which I hope you will love – please sign up to my mailing list below and I’ll keep you updated as soon as I have new resources to share. I’ll also let you know if and when I’m starting new yoga classes in Nottingham or Beeston.
