Hello

I teach breath-led, postural yoga. All classes finish with relaxation. I teach to support students’ mental and physical wellbeing.

I have been practising yoga for over 20 years, and teaching since 2010: in studios, workplaces, community centres, hospitals, with charities, in parks and (occasionally) on water.

I have particular experience and training in restorative yoga, adaptive yoga and yoga for those living with cancer.

Classes are open to everyone. Please contact me in advance of attending a class if you are working with injuries or conditions or have access requirements.

Courses, Workshops and Events

Yoga, Gong Relaxation and Breakfast – Yorkshire Sculpture Park
Saturdays: 24th February, 23rd March, 27th April 2024
9am-10am class, followed by brunch
£21 – includes yoga, brunch and access to the park

I teach a monthly, open level, Saturday morning class at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park. We rove around over the course of the year – practising in different galleries, alongside different exhibitions. In the summer, we often have our session out in the park. We’re currently in the Underground Gallery, surrounded by the playful and thought-provoking Erwin Wurm exhibition. We take inspiration from this as we breathe, move and connect.

The yoga practice is followed by a deep relaxation session accompanied by the magical, nurturing sound of the gong. Afterwards we gather together for chatter and a delicious breakfast of pastries, granola, yoghurt and warm drinks. If you like this kind of thing, it’s really a wonderful way to start the weekend.

I teach reduced rate/pro bono classes for charities/community organisations/the NHS. If you are interested in setting up this type of class, please contact me for details. I have particular experience in working within the field of mental health and have completed trainings in providing adaptive yoga and classes to support people managing the side effects of cancer and cancer treatment.

Stand Up Paddleboard (SUP) Yoga

I trained to teach SUP yoga with the lovely Island School of Yoga in the beautiful Isle of Wight. I have taught SUP classes at the Lake at Beckenham Place Park working with Float and Flow and the PTP Coaching team. I love practising on a board on the water, senses fully immersed (sometimes quite literally!) in the beauty of nature.
