I grew up in a ballet school in Devon, training in, and teaching ballet, tap and modern dance. In my early twenties I swapped my tap shoes for a yoga mat and my journey evolved from yoga being a passion and support in my life, to becoming my full time job. Drew Yogi's were my first Yoga teachers (whilst studying Forestry at University in Bangor, Wales), then Iyengar Yoga whilst living in Edinburgh. I began my British Wheel of Yoga teacher training in 2005, with Wendy Teasdill in Somerset, where I still live with my husband and two boys. I have been teaching Yoga ever since and my classes include teaching yoga to children, adults, mothers with babies, chair yoga and meditation. I have enjoyed teaching several Yoga holidays in Kerala, India and my most recent venture is the move to teaching Yoga online. In more recent years my practice, training and teaching have been influenced by my interest in meditation and passion for improving wellbeing by reducing the effects of anxiety and trauma.

Yoga is a wonderful resource for reducing the negative effects of anxiety and trauma on the body and mind. I am passionate about helping children and adults develop an awareness of their nervous system and sense of wellbeing. I enjoy sharing tools for managing stress, to improve quality of life and to deepen the feeling of connection to an authentic, meaningful life. My recent areas of study include trauma, Polyvagal Theory and neurodiversity (Autism Spectrum Conditions).
