Yoga

If I told you Yoga and I were best friends from the start I would be lying.  Ours was a slow-burning love affair. I remember walking out of my first yoga class vowing never to return… almost 16 years later I qualified as a yoga teacher!

I completed my Yoga Teacher Training 200 hours in Mexico in 2017. I am a qualified Ayurveda Yoga Therapist teaching Sivananda Hatha. My personal Practice is 90% Ashtanga Yoga (Mysore) with 10% Sivananda.

As well as teaching Hatha I am experienced in teaching Vinyasa Flows and beginners Ashtanga classes. During my teacher training, I was lucky enough to study Meditation and Pranayama in equal measure to our asana practice. I have been teaching Meditation and Pranayama as a stand-alone class ever since as well as my daily self-practice.

As I travel the world I am always looking for new experiences and teaching opportunities. I am currently living and traveling in Latin America and I’m always open to new teaching opportunities wherever I go. I would say my Spanish is Intermediate. I am able to give basic instructions in Spanish, but for more complex instructions and advice I will need an interpreter. I prefer where possible to teach in Spanglish!
