I am an experienced Yoga and Pilates teacher with a BA in Dance and I love what I do. I am passionate about teaching people of all ages and abilities about movement and developing awareness and understanding of their body, mind and energy and the benefits it has on their well-being.
Having come from a Dance background with a BA in Dance which I started as a mature student, I studied many body/ mind techniques to allow me to open, soften, maintain and use my body more efficiently in my training so I could keep up with the younger students. However, this has paid off now especially in my teaching as I bring these elements into my classes.
On a six month trip to India, I discovered yoga and meditation and took this up more seriously after my dance training, studying both in London and India various styles of yoga because of how good it made me feel and the sense of balance and grounding it gave me in certain challenging times of my life.
So in 2005, I did my Yoga Teacher Training here in England with Sun Power Yoga accredited by The British Wheel of Yoga and Yoga Alliance and I did various yoga intensives with top International yoga teachers to inform my work and be inspired.
This then led me to study Pilates to gain a more anatomical and biomechanical understanding of the body especially of the deep postural muscles to complement my yoga teaching. However, the Pilates offered me more than I expected, deepening my insight into the body and mind and the power of our centre. So, I did my Pilates Teacher Training in 2009 with Polestar Pilates UK and some workshops with Body Control Pilates.
At present, to continue my professional development, I am doing a teacher training course for Pilates Studio Equipment with Polestar Pilates UK.
Therefore, what I bring to you is an amalgamation of my life experiences, learning and work through Yoga and Pilates.
