Credited as one of the best yoga teachers in the East Midlands (Leicester Mercury 2018), I have been teaching Yoga since 2005 & I am committed to making Yoga available to all who wish to practice. My aim is to help people experience Yoga as a complete mind & body practice and to assist them in developing their own practice to a level which meets their abilities and potential. I teach Vinyasa Flow Yoga which is based on dynamic Hatha Yoga with a modern & creative edge. Through my own experience, I have found Yoga to be a transformative practice with endless benefits. I like to see results in my students and believe anything is possible.
VINYASA FLOW YOGA is a rewarding and beneficial form of Yoga which focuses on the use of the breath to help develop a balance of strength and flexibility within your own body. Regular practice of yoga can help prevent injuries, increased flexibility, increased muscle strength and tone, improved respiration, energy and vitality, whilst maintaining balanced metabolism, weight reduction, cardio and circulatory health. Yoga also promotes a healthy mind because it relieves stress, reduces muscle tension, strain, and inflammation, sharpens attention and concentration, and calms and centres the nervous system. Yoga is an important practice tool for combatting mental health problems such as anxiety and depression.
I am also a Level 2 (Advancing Skills) qualified Yin Yoga teacher. Yin yoga is a slow-paced style of yoga which incorporates yoga postures and Chinese medicine. Yoga postures are held for longer periods of time and bolsters, blankets, blocks and other props are used to help practitioners find comfort during these longer holds. Yin yoga stretches fascia (connective tissue) which surrounds muscles and joints & the aim is to increase circulation to the joints and flexibility too. Yin also helps to regulate the flow of energy in the body and organs in order to improve wellbeing.

Due to the current Coronavirus situation I'm really sorry that I can’t welcome you to a class or offer a hug but there is a minor silver lining among all this: I am now offering online classes streamed live to your door (well, your phone, tablet or laptop at least). Please have a look at the timetable - all class times and prices are staying the same, the only difference is that they will be delivered from my home to yours via Zoom. If you'd like to sign up for these classes you can drop me an email via the Contact page on this website. I would love to welcome you & help you develop a practice that keeps you fit, healthy and mentally balanced through this tricky time. I'm looking forward to seeing you soon.
Keep calm and practice yoga.
