About

I began practicing and studying yoga in 2004 and have been teaching since 2009. 
I am passionate about teaching, running Yoga and Ayurveda retreats and also Ayurveda workshops internationally to help empower and inspire others.

After trying many forms of Hatha yoga, it was the Ashtanga method that most resonated and since 2005 I've committed to a regular Ashtanga Yoga self practice.
My Yoga practice led me to being drawn to share my knowledge with others and in 2010 I completed a 2 year Yoga Alliance 500 hour RYT training with The Art Of Contemporary Yoga school with Alexander Filmer-Lorch and Joanne Avison.

I've spent significant periods of study and training with highly respected teachers including; John Scott, Philippa Asher, Gingi Lee, Prem and Radha Carlisi and David Swenson, with whom I completed a specific adjustments course. 

More recently, I have spent extended periods with Matthew Sweeney as well as following the Advaita Vedanta pointings of Sri Mooji

I am a qualified Ayurvedic Lifestyle consultant with the American Institute of Vedic Studies, run and overseen by Dr David Frawley and continue my practical studies interning with the Indian doctors at a highly respected Ayurveda Pancha Karma centre in Bali.

After completing a Permaculture Design Course in 2015 I spent 6 months interning at a Permaculture training centre in Bali and working on various projects in India, (including the International Permaculture Convergence in 2017) Bali and Portugal.

My practice and teaching embrace Ayurveda, Ashtanga yoga and other asana based practices, Meditation, Pranayama, applied work on consciousness and techniques in transformational life coaching.

I believe passionately in the benefits of yoga and how incorporated with Ayurveda (and Permaculture) a truly holistic lifestyle can be achieved. 

It is my wish to empower people to lead and maintain a truly holistic life
