My Story:

I grew up as an elite acrobatics gymnast south of London. My family run a successful gymnastics club, where I taught gymnastics for over 10 years and helped with the business.

After deciding to pack up competition, I studied Forensics focusing on Anthropology and Biology. Living in London working as an Analyst for a couple of years before moving to Sydney Australia.

Sydney was a fresh start to create the life I wanted. The healthy beach culture was infectious and I quickly booked onto my first Yoga class which blew me away! I came out of my first class having felt something I hadn’t felt in years. IYoga london felt energised, challenged, pushed, curious and at the same time, more relaxed and comfortable in myself than I had felt in years. I was hooked, there day after day finding challenge in each new pose, each new flow, each new experience and bit by bit I felt more and more like myself.

Yoga really did change my life. I practised at every opportunity and I went on to complete 350hr advanced Power Vinyasa Yoga teacher training with the amazing Power Living team, studying under the internationally renowned Duncan Peak.

In 2017 I completed 100hr Yin yoga training with Sarah Powers and 25hr Myofascial Release with Tiffany Cruikshank of Yoga Medicine. In 2018 I went on to complete my Kids & Family Yoga training with Rainbow Yoga and my Rocket Yoga certification with The Yoga People.

My hope is to give my students what I found in that first class. An escape from the stresses of the day-to-day, and an opportunity for self exploration to connect with themselves and tap into that childhood sense of play whilst exploring the ancient practice. Yoga is my passion and I love to share it and help others, so please get in touch if I can be of service. Namaste!
