I’ve been practising yoga for years and teaching since 2018 after completing the Yoga Scotland 500 hours teacher training diploma. Yoga has such power to change peoples’ lives; it’s wonderful to be able to share it with others. I’m committed to making yoga as inclusive as possible, with the language we use in class as well as the postures we practice. I’m also very interested in the way the body, mind and emotions connect and undertook Training with The Yoga Clinic in 2017 to develop my understanding of trauma informed yoga teaching.
I think of yoga as a deeply individual experience so I offer classes that invite students to explore, finding their own unique space between gentle and deep every time they practice. We keep the breath at the heart of each class, whether we’re working through flowing sequences or releasing into a single posture.
I’ve been lucky enough to work in the charitable sector for most of my life, for many years focussed on the environment and more recently, young people and equalities. This has resulted in an interest in the role of yoga in social justice and activism, that continues to inform my practice and teaching.
