My yoga journey began many years ago whilst struggling with severe anxiety and panic attacks. I had become confined to my home for 6 months, so leaving my home on that day for my very first yoga class was horrifying; however that’s when my life changed. As the class started I couldn’t believe how quickly my anxiety levels began to drop and how much more relaxed and calm I was feeling.
Since that day I have been committed to my yoga practice on a regular basis for more than 15 years and completed a Level 1 Yoga Teacher Training Certificate with My Health Yoga in September 2015. My preferred yoga style is Hatha, meaning slow and gentle based classes with simple breathing exercises and some seated meditation. My aim is to safely and gently guide you through a sequence of asana, designed to work the entire body, aligning your skin, muscles and bones, stimulating your internal organs and building mental strength and confidence. I will always offer alternatives to any asana (posture) for more gentle or in order to deepen your practice.
I believe Hatha yoga is a powerful tool for self transformation. Hatha yoga has taught me to bring my attention to the breath which helps still the fluctuating mind and also helps everyone to be more present in each moment as it unfolds. Hence the focus on breathing through every asana in class. I will conclude every class with a guided meditation so that you leave the class feeling relaxed and refreshed.
