I have been practicing yoga since 1996 and teaching since 2009. I grew up in Canada and moved to England in my twenties to study acting. I worked as an actress and a drama teacher before my love of yoga led me to undertake a three year yoga training course. I hold teaching certificates from the Krishnamacharya Healing & Yoga Foundation (now called The Society of Yoga Practitioners) and the British Wheel of Yoga. I completed the British Wheel of Yoga Module In Pregnancy with Judy Cameron in 2013.
The concept of the individual is at the heart of the KHYF approach. Yoga is not a finite discipline but a group of tools that can be applied for the benefit of each person at every stage of life. As well as posture work (asana), I include pranayama, visualisation, and chanting in my yoga classes as appropriate.
Every yoga teacher is forever a student and I attend regular classes with my mentor Deborah Sutton as well as training weekends with the TSYP. In 2013 I studied Mudras and Bandhas at the Sannidhi of Krishnamacharya Yoga in Chennai, India. I returned to Chennai in January 2017 to do an intensive 10-day training in Vedic Chanting under the tuition of Radha Sundararajan. In 2019 I completed the two year course and qualified as a Vedic Chant Teacher.
