My Story

Ch.1 "Exploring"

In a nutshell: I’m a passionate yogini with a strong desire for all beings to be happy and free.  I’m an artistic, creative soul.  I’m a lover of animals and nature, and an advocate of healthy, conscious, vegan living, 

Let me expand upon this.  Growing up in the countryside in Wales, I was always active and fit, loving all types of physical pursuits.  I also thrived in the arts and had visions of becoming a successful actress. 

During my late teens, I was introduced to Ashtanga Yoga through my school and my sister (who recently qualified to teach).  It was also around this time I became interested in health and nutrition due to ongoing digestive issues

Like for many though, my journey was not linear, and I spent my early twenties at a London Drama school, letting my yoga practice and healthy lifestyle fall to wayside.

Ch.2 "Becoming"

It was only a matter of time though before my yoga practice and I reunited and I was reaping all the benefits again.  My practice deepened, I got into meditation, I gave up alcohol and by my late twenties I became Vegan and was thriving off a plant-based diet.

I was still in London, acting here and there and the painter within me also began to express itself.  Yoga, however, was my one consistent and supported my growing interest in health and wellness. 

Before I knew it, I was putting most of my time, energy and money into advancing my Yoga practice and the pull towards becoming a teacher grew strong.

Ch..3 "Sharing"

This led me to completing my 200hr Yoga Teacher Training with Mercedes Sieff in 2018 and I have been teaching full-time since.

I currently teach studio and private classes across London, specialising in Vinyasa Flow.  This style allows me to be creative, playful and draw upon the best of what I’ve learnt over the years from other styles and merge it into the classes I teach today.  

I am grateful to be on this teaching path that is enabling me to flourish and support others in the process.  I find it fulfilling on so many different levels and it brings me great joy seeing the students being inspired on their yoga journey.  Their passion, progression, and commitment in turn inspires me to keep learning, growing and sharing.  And I’m currently in the process of completing my 300 YTT with Sianna Sherman.    

Ch.4 "Evolving"

As I am aware of the interconnection between one’s own wellness and the wellness of our planet, I’m also learning more about sustainability and environmentalism.  We have to not only take care of our inner environment but also our outer environment, hence my increased focus on living more eco-conscious.

Yoga helps one achieve optimal health, in mind and body, and is a practice and way of life which can lead to inner freedom, ending inner suffering.  But as we are a human collective on this earth, we are personally not free until we are all free.  Therefore, social justice and equality for all are also important matters within our outer environment that I am starting to improve my knowledge upon, greaten my understanding in and taking action in supporting.

I hope you will join me for the ride as I dive deeper on this journey, which has many facets, but ultimately one goal, wellbeing for all.

love + peace
