I have been a student of yoga for many years, eventually coming to the Ashtanga practise and beginning my studies with master teacher Denise Martin Harker. After 5 years of continued practise, I was invited to join the teacher-training programme for primary series with Denise and I am certified to teach as a result of my studies. To further enhance my knowledge I continued my studies in India with Nancy Gilgoff, Kino, Petri Raisanen and here in the UK with Manju Jois and John Scott. All of the aforementioned teachers belong to the Ashtanga linage as taught by Sri K Pattabhi Jois and his teacher Sri T Krishnamacharya.
I am also an initiate into the Himalayan Yoga practise as taught by Swami Veda of Rishikesh and I have undertaken meditation tutorage with Swami Nityamuktananda. I retreat annually to take Vipassana (guided silence) at the global retreat centre here in the UK. Years of study and practiseallow me to teach from firsthand experience and assist those with an interest in yoga to understand both the physical and more subtle metaphysical aspects of this wonderful practise and way of living.
I addition to my yoga studies I am also a qualified masseuse and I am currently studying Psychotherapy at the Queen Mary University in London.
