'You have the right to work, but never to the fruit of work [...] Perform work in this world, Arjuna [...] without selfish attachments, and alike in success and defeat. For yoga is perfect evenness of mind.'

The Bhagavad Gita, Ch. II, verse 47f

CLASSES

I offer a highly dynamic, physical style of Vinyasa Flow Yoga. You can expect to build up a nice amount of heat flowing through a series of creative, playful and challenging posture sequences. I take great care in building my sequences ensuring that you're offered a healthy balance of strength-building and stretching postures working your entire body.

 

Each class features a considerately chosen, thought-provoking yogic theme. These create a space for you to apply the refined yogic perspective to your own mind in the moment and more broadly to your life off the mat.

MY LIFE ON THE MAT

I trained as a Vinyasa Flow Yoga teacher with Alessandra Pecorella, long-term student of Shiva Rea, and I’m registered with the Yoga Alliance (RYS-200). I have continued my study with Alessandra and assisted in some of her open classes at the Light Centre in Moorgate.

 

I've completed the 300 hour advanced teacher training with Claire Missingham. You can watch her guide Yoga Journal around London here.

 

I've had the pleasure and privilege to study with many teachers over the years including Jason Crandell, Claire Missingham, Kino MacGregor, David Swenson and Kathryn Budig

.

I'm forever growing and evolving as a practitioner and continue to attend events with various amazing teachers in Colchester, Essex, and around the world.

APPROACH TO TEACHING

Yoga has many amazing aspects to it, one of which is the wide range of experience level that can be accommodated in one class. I'm always happy to cater to beginners and to those with injuries, but my classes also usually include more advanced poses. Personally, I love arm balances so these feature frequently!

Yoga is a spiritual practice and in my classes you're offered a space for reflection, contemplation and quietude. That said, to me, being "spiritual" doesn't mean always being serious. Whilst I take yoga very seriously I'm no stranger to cracking a joke whilst teaching and my classes are upbeat and infused with laughter.
