I'm a yoga teacher based in Newcastle upon Tyne with a love for helping others to connect back to themselves. 

Yoga has had such a positive impact on all aspects of my life. In particular, it has helped me grow a deeper connection to both my body and mind. My journey began in 2013 when I started exploring yoga as a way to relieve back pain, which had been causing me problems for several years. It was also during a time where I felt a bit stuck and disconnected from myself.  I started practising yoga almost daily and it wasn’t long before I noticed something greater than the physical asana kept drawing me back. I was happier, sleeping better and had started to feel connected to both my body and mind. I fell in love with the practice and magic of yoga, on and off the mat, and it became an important part of my life.

 

In December 2017, I travelled to India to complete my 200 hour teacher training certificate in Ashtanga and Vinyasa Flow at Sampoorna School. I have since completed trainings with incredible teachers including Celest Pereira, Jennilee Toner, Adam Husler, Sally Parkes and Naomi Murphy.

In 2019 I relocated to the North East and now teach regular classes, 1:1s and workshops in Newcastle upon Tyne, as well as on my online membership Nurture Space.

Through the power of yoga, it is my intention to help others connect back to themselves and live fuller, happier lives. I find it truly rewarding to hold a safe space for students to move and breathe. I believe Yoga should be available to everyone, and it is my aim to guide people of all ages and abilities through their own practice and to live fuller, happier lives. My teaching style is creative and light-hearted with a focus on safe alignment and using the breath to connect postures. I teach a variety of styles of yoga, with a specialism in women’s health.

When I'm not teaching yoga I enjoy hiking, making natural skincare products, gardening at the allotment and experimenting with fermented foods in the kitchen!
