I started practicing Iyengar Yoga over 20 years ago whilst studying and found that it had a profound effect on my ability to concentrate. My father passed away during my last year in university and  yoga helped me deal with grief. Losing someone so close at a young age taught me the value of living for the moment and following your dreams.

I have continued practicing a variety of styles of yoga including Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Power Yoga, Kundalini, Satyananda and Yin Yoga.

After practicing for over 13 years I felt a yearning to share my knowledge and I took a break from work to take an International Yoga Alliance accredited 200 hour course in Bali. This was a transformative journey. I also spent a month doing seva (volunteering) at a Satyananda Yoga Ashram and also undertook a 10 day vipassana (silent meditation) course, thereby deepening my understanding of yogic lifestyles and meditation practices. Since starting teaching I have completed my Birthlight pregnancy yoga teacher training. In 2013 I undertook a 500 hour International Yoga Alliance accredited teacher training with Emil Wendel and Julie Martin in India and I returned again in 2016 to Rishikesh where I taught meditation on a teacher training course.

I am very interested in bringing yoga to wider audiences and I have adapted yoga practices for people living with dementia, run a research project on this and just published the first book on this subject.
