In a nutshell: I’m a passionate yogini with a strong desire for all beings to be happy, radiant and free. I’m also an artistic, creative soul; a lover of animals and nature; and an advocate of healthy, conscious, vegan living.
My roots lie in the muddy fields of North Wales, where I grew up surrounded by wide open spaces, flowers, cats, sheep, and a big, loving family. From early on I was active and fit, excelling in a variety of sports and physical pursuits. I also thrived in the performing 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 herself became a qualified teacher. It was also around this time I became interested in health and nutrition due to gut issues.
Like many though, my yoga journey had some fits and starts. I spent my early twenties immersed in my studies at a London Drama School and my yoga practice and healthy lifestyle fell to the wayside.
It was only a matter of time before my yoga practice and I reunited. I began reaping all the benefits again and greater shifts started to happen in my life. My practice and spiritual curiosity deepened, I started meditating daily, I gave up alcohol, and by my late twenties I became Vegan and was thriving on a plant-based diet.
I was still in London, acting here and there and the painter within me also began to express itself with great fervour. Yoga, however, was my one constant and aligned with my growing interest in health and wellness in mind and body.
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.
This led me to completing my 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training with Mercedes Sieff in 2018 and I have been teaching full-time since.
I currently teach private classes in West and Central London, specialising in “Vinyasa Flow”. This style of yoga allows me to be creative and draw upon the best of what I’ve learnt over the years (from many different styles).
I am grateful to be on this teaching path that is supporting and benefiting others whilst also enabling me to flourish and be fulfilled. It brings me so much joy seeing my students be inspired through yoga to live well and do well in the world. Their passion, progression, and commitment, in turn inspires me to keep learning, growing and sharing.
In 2021 I completed a further 400 hours of training with Sianna Sherman, founder of the Rasa Yoga School, and I am proud and pleased to say my studies with her are ongoing.
Over the last 16 years of living in London, I’ve felt a growing calling from Mother Earth to intensify my connection with her. I am acutely aware of the interconnection between one’s own wellness and the wellness of our planet, therefore I’m also learning more about sustainability, regeneration and environmentalism. We have to not only take care of our internal, physical, embodied environment but also our outer environment, hence my increased focus on living more eco-consciously.
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, are also important matters within our outer environment, in which I am starting to improve my knowledge, increase my understanding and take action in supporting.
I hope you will join me as I continue to lean into this journey of Union, which has many facets but ultimately leads towards one goal; wellbeing, peace and liberation for all.
love + peace
