I started yoga at 18 and fell in love with it, for some people it takes time but from my first session I was hooked, it was what my soul had been yearning for from the depths since I can remember. I loved that it was exercise but spiritual at the same time. I was learning not just body and breath awareness but deep spiritual knowledge; philosophy, morals, the way to true happiness, balance and peace, it felt wholesome on all levels. I began teaching as a qualified Sun Power Yoga instructor in 2009. My style has developed into a creative fusion of hatha, flow, and power yoga, with influences from Jivamukti, Ashtanga and Iyengar. A session with me will include breath, asana, hand mudra's, and deep relaxation to promote a feeling of inner and outer radiance. I am responsive to the needs of my students using experience and intuition, and always strive to provide a deeply nourishing and welcoming atmosphere for your soul, mind and body to heal and find inner peace.
In recent years I have been very interested in women's wellness and have experienced deeply healing practices and experiences through attending a Women's Wellness Yoga Therapy course by Uma Dinsmore-Tuli, and subsequently assisting her on women's retreats in the UK and Ireland during 2015. I highly recommend her magnificent book "Yoni Shakti." For a few years I have been holding monthly moon circles for women, and seen the huge benefit and magic of women coming together in a circle to just be ourselves and honour womanhood; the journey, the 3 main rites of passage (menstruation, giving birth, menopause), our bodies and our innate wisdom. I often honour this through a short talk on a certain subject, with time for sharing thoughts and feelings, a session of deep relaxation, sound healing, yoga, and sometimes include affirmations, Goddess/Archangel card readings, cleansing with white sage, drawing, colouring or writing.
Please don't hesitate to get in contact if you would like to come to a women's moon circle, try a 1-2-1 yoga session, or have a wellness programme tailored to you.
