I have been teaching in Crouch End, N8 since 1990 and have trained with the Inner Yoga Trust. For more information about the Trust and teaching follow this link: www.inneryoga.org.uk. I have qualified with the Trust to teach both General Yoga and Pregnancy Yoga. I draw inspiration from international teachers, Angela Farmer, Victor Van Kooten and Vanda Scaravelli. All my inspiring teachers, including my Mother, have originally studied with B. K.S. Iyengar in India. However, all have moved away from his school of teaching to develop their own unique approach. More recently I have expanded my practice with Francoise Freedman, founder of Birthlight. I am continually developing and learning from teachers such as John Stirk and Donna Farhi.
My journey with Hatha Yoga began as a child with my mother, Maureen. Out of this joyful exploration my practice of Yoga has played a central part in my personal growth and search for spiritual roots. My life experience has given me a deep appreciation for the connection between the mind and emotions, the breath, and the physical body. I see my practice and teaching as a healing art. I have practiced as a healer and masseuse for 12 years which has been a major part of my search for health and well-being for myself and for others. I am also a visual artist, when I find the time. I now have a daughter, Jasmine, who keeps me very busy and challenges me to apply my yoga practice to everyday life!
