My Story

Ch 1. "Exploring"

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

I sprouted out of the fertile fields of north wales, amidst flora, fauna and wild open spaces. I was active, fit and excelled in a variety of sports and physical pursuits.  I also thrived in the performing arts and had aspirations of becoming a successful actress. 

During my late teens, I was introduced to Ashtanga Yoga through my school and my sister who had recently became a teacher.  It was also around this time I became interested in health and nutrition.

Like many though, my yoga journey was not linear.  I spent my early twenties immersed in studies at a London Drama School and my yoga practice and healthy lifestyle fell to the wayside.

Ch 2. "Becoming"

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 yoga 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.

Ch 3. "Sharing"

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

After many years teaching in London studios, I now tecah private clients from around the world online, 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 personally 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.

Ch 4. "Evolving"

In more recent years 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 that I am learning more about and taking 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
