I took my first yoga class at a local gym in 2005, and for several years, I practiced Hatha and Sivananda yoga to help balance the stresses of graduate school. In 2008, I moved from Cambridge, England to London, where I discovered dynamic vinyasa and power yoga. I qualified to teach yoga in 2012.
I am immensely grateful to all of my mentors and teachers, especially my current teacher, Jason Crandell. Jason is a constant source of inspiration for how to teach and practice yoga in an intelligent, accessible, grounded way. I consider myself a yoga mutt, and have benefitted from guidance from teachers in a wide range of traditions, including Ashtanga (David Swenson, Sri Sheshadri), Dharma Mittra (Mark Kan), Jivamukti, and Iyengar.
I teach physically and intellectually challenging vinyasa yoga classes that place primacy on precise and intelligent movement linked to a steady, strong ujjayi breath. I also strongly believe in the importance of taking your yoga practice 'off the mat' and, through Karma Yoga London, I'm working to provide opportunities for people to give back within their communities and across the world.
I am offering a 200-hr foundational level Yoga Teacher Training Programme in Jan-March 2021. I also regularly teach workshops and special yoga events, such as free outdoor yoga classes during the summer. I run international yoga retreats and am also available for private, one-to-one yoga classes.
