Prana Vinyasa Flow Yoga
Yoga is a movement meditation, an offering of how you move through life and conveying this stillness and freedom is at the core of how I teach. My classes are slow but strong, challenging but peaceful, like riding a big wave in the ocean.
There is always a sense of evolution and growth, but with no expectations or judgement. I like to feel as if I have been on a journey, so take my students on that journey too.
I usually work with a theme, an idea I want to explore, maybe a chakra or an element (water, fire etc) and create my class around that.
Music is also central to my teaching, it’s spell binding and so transporting. My playlists always correspond to the sequence I am teaching, so it really helps facilitate the practice.
Enjoying practice and never needing to be perfect
My journey to yoga, as with many of us, was a serendipitous one. However, there was no seeing lights or ecstatic love with me and yoga, in fact I would go as far as to say it was a complicated relationship, one I knew I was learning from but one that was troublesome and demanding.
I have dragon boated across the English channel, represented Great Britain on the equestrian 3 day event team and even fought in the boxing ring. But really my greatest challenge has been Yoga.
I first found yoga back in 1999 in a rather cold, damp church hall in South Kensington, London. My teacher was the extraordinary Ed Clarke.
My fascination with movement, my thirst for vitality and the exhilaration one feels from feeling fit and healthy, teamed with an unexplainable desire to want to go deeper and explore Yoga philosophies and its mind-body connection, has led me to have a consistent practice for the past 15 years.
In this time I have trained and practiced with incredible teachers all over the world. From Sharat Auror at the Himalayan Iyengar yoga centre, to have a deep understanding of alignment and precision, to a dynamic practice at Jivamukti. Then discovering a more anatomical training at The Contemporary School of Yoga focusing on the Myofascia alignment in the body. Looking for a freer form and more creative expression lead me miraculously to my most influential teacher Shiva Rea. And finally I knew I wanted to share my love of yoga.
