I began practising yoga in the mid 90’s whilst studying A level Sport and immediately noticed both physical and mental benefits. During university I became more interested in alternative health and spirituality and in 2002 trained as a Holistic Therapist. In 2006 I began my Yoga Teacher Training at Shamayoga School and have been teaching ever since. My experience includes working at leisure centres, village halls, clinics and detox retreats both locally to Sheffield and Chesterfield and also in North Devon where I lived for 5 years. Since qualifying as a yoga teacher I have had two children and practiced pregnancy yoga, meditation and breathing techniques which really helped with my pregnancies and childbirth. I also worked as an outdoor activity instructor for a number of years and find yoga amazing for re-balancing my body after sport. I recently studied with Sarah Ramsden Yoga Coach for professional footballers and athletes. In addition to yoga I hold a qigong qualification with YMCAfit and have studied with a number of qigong teachers including Sifu Mathew Cohen of Sacred Energy Arts. I currently teach at Power of Yoga and run retreats in North Devon. I also work one to one with clients providing sports and holistic massage alongside yoga and meditation. My mission is to make mind body spirit practices accessible to everybody and I have set up a YouTube channel to help me spread the word of the amazing powers of yoga!
