I have been practising Yoga for nearly 20 years and qualified as a teacher with the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Academy (www.sivananda.at) in 2010 and as a Yoga Therapist with The Minded Institute in 2014. I am also the holder of an MA in Yoga & Meditation Traditions (Distinction) from SOAS University of London and a qualified Mindfulness Teacher via Mindfulness UK.
After my very first Yoga class, I experienced a sense of calm and relaxation, combined with a vibrant energy. I knew that I had found something special that would accompany me throughout life. In 2009, I began my training with the Sivananda Yoga organisation and went on to become a regular teacher at their Yoga Centre in London. As a complement to this very experiential training, I undertook a 500-hour teacher training with Heather Mason at The Minded Institute to become a Yoga Therapist, specialising in mental health conditions. The training integrates the wisdom of the ancient tradition of yoga with cutting-edge scientific knowledge and research, on how yoga and mindfulness can combine with psychotherapeutic techniques to treat the whole individual. I was a supervisor to students on the subsequent 500-hour trainings for 5 years and now lecture on Yoga history and philosophy to students at Minded.
Alongside Yoga, I manage an arts & cultural marketing consultancy (www.thecogency.com). This aspect of my life enables me to understand the challenges of life in this wonderful, but often stressful city, juggling work, home and social life. My Yoga practice provides a counter-balance, bringing stillness into the heart of a busy world.
I am committed to continuing professional development and regularly attend workshops, seminars and retreats to deepen my understanding of Yoga and bring that learning to my teaching. Most recently, I completed a week-long training to deliver iRest Yoga Nidra, a practice for deep relaxation, meditation and personal enquiry.
I am passionate about the benefits that Yoga can bring to everyone. I look forward to meeting you at a class or workshop soon and sharing my experience of Yoga.

What our customers say about MoveGB
This has transformed my fitness! The flexibility of being able to go to a variety of places/classes has been super convenient - it works for me in loads of cities and I can team up with different friends to try new classes.
Been doing it for about two and a half years and love it. So many choices at such a great price. And the motivational messages are always a good little spark to keep you focused.
