I first came to yoga when I was an angsty 17 year old gal with absolutely no idea who I was or what I was doing with my life. Like most people, I got hooked on the physical element of yoga and how wonderfully amazing asana practice made my body feel. As my practice deepened over time, I began to understand and appreciate the more holistic nature of yoga. Subsequently, my mind, body & spirit merged with my physical asana and allowed me to truly absorb myself in the yogic approach to life and learning.
Since the beginning of my practice, I’ve learnt so much about myself, who I am and who I want to be and I continue to evolve in this way each time I come to meet myself on my mat.
I hoped that teaching would give me the opportunity to experience this journey of self discovery alongside others – colleagues, peers, students, and thus (with guidance and support from my wonderful mentor Amanda Reilly), I embarked on my 200 hour teacher training with the internationally recognised YogaCampus institute.
Teaching yoga has also massively influenced my daily work as a Physiotherapist. I can honestly say I’ve been astonished by the incredible impact that yoga has had on the life of my patients. I feel that my teacher training has enabled me to access more holistic treatment methods and work with humility. 
My classes are loosely Ashtanga and Vinyasa based, but they also incorporate a wide array of other yoga styles. In my classes you can expect to feel strong and stable, while challenging your mind to meet your body through finding stillness – all within a safe, light-hearted and warm environment (as well as some funky tunes to accompany).
I am an open and easy going person that approaches most things in life with a sense of humour- and one thing you’ll definitely learn about me quickly is that I really don’t know my right from my left … not kidding!! 🙂 🙂
