I trained with the International Yoga Teaching Organisation of FRYOG (Yoga Alliance registered and part of the Independent Yoga Network). I am a member of the British Wheel of Yoga. In addition I have a CertEd Teacher Training. I am a listed teacher on Yoga UK.
I have broad experience in teaching yoga and the natural therapies since 1986 in Adult and Further Education, schools and commercial companies. I established my own yoga centre called Greenfields in Normandy in 2006 and enjoyed teaching classes and workshops there for eight years.
I have moved just around the corner and created another beautiful and nurturing environment for my students and clients to enjoy. The Oaks is a beautiful barn-like studio with a lovely outlook in a rural setting and this is where I now hold all my classes, workshops and massage treatments.
I have also trained in various natural therapies including Aromatherapy, Reflexology and Indian Head Massage with ITEC and The Raworth International College of Natural & Sports Therapies
I have studied with various yoga and meditation teachers and been on meditation and self-development retreats over the years. These and my continued professional development influence and evolve my teaching as an ongoing process.
I come from a dancing background and have wide experience in movement and body awareness.
I find yoga wonderful for looking after myself physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. It is such a healthy way to release stress and tension and offers people the chance to slow down and give themselves some quality attention.
I love to see my students use the session to release tension, discover how to move well and relax - leaving uplifted and peaceful.
For me yoga is about finding your centre. It's a way of developing inner strength. Yoga is release - letting go and clearing away all the clutter you are carrying. Yoga is a way of getting to know yourself through increased observation and awareness. It's an opportunity to be with yourself - honestly and tenderly. It's a way of peeling away the layers to discover your true essence. Yoga is about gradual transformation through gentle attention and self love.
