“One of the strongest messages I try to impart upon students is the integration of yoga with everyday life. I believe strongly that a busy schedule becomes all the more manageable with the grounding effects of a regular yoga practice. My students enjoy a light-hearted environment while reaping the benefits of a strong practice. I focus on the mindfulness aspect of yoga,correct alignment of the body, deep relaxation whilst practicing strongly but safely”.

 ‘I had chronic eczema until my 20’s, I also had asthma and a lot of allergies along with Scoliosis. Having exhausted every other avenue over the years I decided to try Yoga. Within 1 year of practice, my eczema and asthma had cleared and my back felt great. I was so passionate about sharing this with others I left a career in design and started training to be a Yoga teacher. I have been practising for more than 20 years now. Along the way, I have studied with some of the most experienced and knowledgeable yogis from all different parts of the world and schools of thought. This provided me with a grounding in modern medicine and the application of yoga to medical conditions.’
