"SHIFT YOUR MIND TO YOUR BREATH AND FIND YOUR PEACE"

I love teaching yoga as I get a buzz when watching people leave class looking happy and relaxed, with just a little nervousness that they could be sore tomorrow.

The emphasis in my teaching is the connection of body and mind as I endeavour to help you remain fully present in your body, so that you move with mindfulness and learn to listen to your body.

I think this 'mindfulness' is why people feel so peaceful after yoga, even if we've had a strenuous, sweaty, physically challenging class.

I've been practising yoga for 20 years and teaching for ten. I'm also a massage therapist and dance teacher, so bring a keen sense of anatomy and alignment to my classes.

Leisure-time finds me growing vegetables, reading thrilling novels, running round the Marshlands and eating chocolate.
