I trained with Chloe Fremantle and Anne-Marie Zulkahari on the two year London YTTC, qualifying in December 2008. The course is BWY accredited and carries BWY insurance.

Tutors on the course included Giovanni Felicioni, with whom I continue to study, Peter Blackaby, Neville Cregan, Catherine James, Belinda Shattock and Lisa McRory.

Current influences are Chloe Fremantle, Giovanni Felicioni and the work of Hubert Godard.

My aim is to adapt the yoga to the individual rather than the other way round so that we can learn to inhabit our bodies more intelligently.

I teach both beginners and more advanced students in small groups and also offer one to one sessions.

I started my professional career in the theatre, initially as a performer and subsequently as a promoter and producer. I have been practising yoga for twenty years. I trained with Chloë Fremantle and Anne-Marie Zulkahari on the two year, London YTTC British Wheel of Yoga accredited teacher training and since qualifying in 2008 have been teaching in East London and the City.

My teaching is rooted in the tradition of Vanda Scaravelli which is centered around the relationship between gravity, breath and the spine. This tradition adapts the yoga asanas, or postures, to each individual physique in a grounded and hands-on exploration of the body’s natural movement patterns, working with gravity and the breath to release tension, free the spine and experience greater flexibility, strength and balance.

Yoga can teach us how to inhabit the body more intelligently, to develop greater awareness of our self and others through being both stable and yet adaptable. Practice becomes a personal inquiry, thus releasing our potential for integration and individual creativity both through the cultivation of movement and paradoxically, the ability to be still.
