A LITTLE MORE ABOUT ME

Embodiment & Curiosity 

I first found yoga in 2006 when I was struggling to sleep after starting University. Since then I have returned to my practice after having my two children, each time with a slightly different body. 

 

I have learnt that whilst our relationship with our bodies may change throughout our lifetime, we can always find a way to honour and appreciate them for what they do for us, every single day.

 

Through my teaching I aim to bring ease and mobility to the body, building strength and flexibility. My professional background and trainings in TCTSY play a significant role in what I offer. I teach from a trauma informed perspective throughout all that I deliver. My understanding of theories such as Attachment theory, Polyvagal Theory and Trauma Theory underpin all my work. In am deeply invested in providing space for people to explore their own journey, whether this be one of post-traumatic growth, experience of mental ill-health or greater personal enquiry. I am committed to ensuring that my services are supported by the latest research and training. You can take a look at my qualifications below. In addition I am held to account by the Centre for Trauma and Embodiment and remain 'in good standing' as well as participating in regular peer supervision.

 

I teach from a place of authenticity and experience having explored, practiced and reflected upon each style of yoga, breath-work, or theory. 

 

I value each and every person who joins my class and I look forward to seeing you soon.
