For me, yoga is a means of inquiry into ourselves – body and mind – and ultimately our essential nature.

Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced yogini, yoga can meet you where you are.

My teaching aims at seeking balance: stability and mobility, strength and flexibility, effort and ease, discernment and acceptance. Balancing these opposites and honing our awareness is where it’s at for me.

I dipped in and out of classes and home practice for many years, then became serious about practicing after a horse-riding accident. Retreats, workshops, a trip to India and then seeing the difference yoga made to injury recovery all led to yoga teacher training.

From my own experiences I know how helpful yoga can be with regaining movement and strength, along with improving mental balance and emotional resilience, and I love to share this knowledge.

As well as yoga teaching, I’m a musician, performer and director and have taught performing arts and theatre at universities and polytech.

I take an interest in contemporary research in yoga and movement, was an Iyengar Yoga student for several years, and my yoga teacher training is in Classical Hatha.
