I took my first yoga class in 1998 whilst studying photography. I found the most beautiful , wise soulful teacher named Irene and she opened the door of yoga for me and the deep spiritual practice. To this day, I consider her my heart teacher. She was humble, kind , wise and knowledgeable.
I became a dedicated student, my path led me to Iyengar teachers for which I am forever grateful for the discipline and precision but over time I grew tired of the rigidity of the practice and another door opened to the world of Vinyasa Krama.
Over the years Ive spent extended periods of time in India where I have immersed myself in the practice.
I worked as a photographer for many years and then in 2011 after a cancer diagnosis I decided to change the course of my life and took my first teacher training and have been teaching ever since.
I’ve gone on to train for over 800hours.
In 2021 I certified as a Mindfulness Meditation teacher after an in-depth two year training into the teachings of kindness and compassion with Jack Kornfield and Tara Brach.
A course with both psychological and spiritual depth, it has paved the way for work into health care settings and for mindful living.
Silence has become an integral part of my life and make sure I go on retreat silence as much as family life allows!
All of these practices have helped me navigate the rich tapestry of life with steadiness and ease and I am grateful to all of my teachers.
After living and teaching in London at Yogahome for many years my family and I have been on a quest to find a place to call home.
After much searching I now live in the English Countryside just outside Stroud with my husband , 3 young daughters and sausage dog.
Theses days I still take pictures but not professionally.
Like all of us, I’m riding the wonder of this life and counting all my blessings.
