'Yoga is a way to freedom. By Its constant practice, we can free ourselves from fear, anguish and loneliness' - Indra Devi

 

About

I started yoga due to an injury in my shoulder, but I have continued to practice for many reasons. It took a while for the practice to feel good physically, but I persevered and my body slowly started changing. When I started doing self-practice daily, I also began meditating. The first ten days of meditation were really eye-opening for me. it is, without question, the first time I truly gave my mind some space and it felt amazing. This self-investment, alongside learning from a wonderful teacher, saw my practice start to grow. 

I first began practicing Ashtanga, but soon found that Vinyasa worked best for my body and mind (at that time). When I was working full time it ticked all the boxes; a fun, sweaty, dynamic and creative flow that would take you on a journey, and finish with a well-deserved Savasana. I love to move the body creatively and freely!

Through my teaching I want to connect to people and help people connect to themselves. My intention is to help students find some space, re-charge and train the mind to let go of anything that isn’t serving them right. When you come to the mat nothing else matters, and when we can bring a little bit of the space and positivity, that we cultivate in our practice into the everyday, it is truly magical!

I continue to develop my practice and am always seeking new opportunities to learn and challenge myself in new ways; from Acroyoga, Yin Yoga and modern breath practices. There are so many fantastic teachers in London and so much on offer. I am continuously inspired by teachers in the UK and international teachers who host workshops here. I love to explore new methodologies, techniques and bring inspiration to my classes; to broaden my practice, and the practice of my students.
