My approach to Yoga is sensitive and varied, respecting each individual’s uniqueness and starting point. My aim is to share the spirit of Yoga with you and the community through my classes, 121s and workshops. I teach small, friendly Yoga classes suitable for all ages and abilities based around Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire and Lincolnshire.

I teach also, small, therapeutic classes and 121 Yoga tuition and therapy which is the application of Yoga for health and healing in order to alleviate many common ailments. These practices combine simple physical postures, breathing techniques, relaxation practices, meditation and study.

My personal experience of Yoga has shown it to be a useful tool for everyday situations and a daily practice has been an incredible support on many different levels.  Yoga begins where you are now and this is fundamental to your practice.

I began my career in 1994 as a school teacher and have been studying and practicing Yoga since the mid-1990s. I was introduced to the teachings of T.K.Krishnamacharya by Sheila Baker (aYs) and have studied with Ranju Roy and Dave Charlton as part of the Sadhana Mala Teacher and Therapy Practitioner Programme (aYs) recognised and accredited by the British Wheel of Yoga.

My classes aim to teach Yoga combining the physical exercises that stretch and tone the body with the nurture and development of your emotional health and wellbeing. The content of the practices are carefully put together to build safely and progressively, always focusing on the needs of the individual.

My guilty secret/s: eat too much chocolate; use my husband’s cosmetics; will not go to bed when I should and although I’m from the generation of teenagers who followed, The Stranglers, The Undertones and Stiff Little Fingers one of my top ten songs is Annie’s  Song by John Denver!
