I’ve practised Scaravelli-inspired yoga for over 15 years and have a varied and natural daily practice.

I qualified in July 2019 as a yoga teacher with Dot Bowen’s Integrity School of Yoga (2 year, 200 hour, Yoga Teacher Development Course), and am registered with the Independent Yoga Network and insures by BGi.

I officially began teaching yoga in September 2019, but have been practising teaching throughout my teaching course (2017-2019) including 1:1 and small group classes, working with varied levels of mobility.

My main teachers and influences in yoga are Suzy Greenwood (nee Daw) (suzannadawyoga) Dot Bowen (dotbowenyoga), John Stirk (John Stirk[.]com) and Becky Barkans, all of whom have several decades of teaching experience and are regular practitioners with Diane Long, a long-term student of Vanda Scaravelli’s. In addition to my certification, I have attended in-depth Scaravelli-inspired courses, classes and yoga therapy workshops and 1:1 sessions with these teachers, amounting to over 200 contact hours. I continue to be guided by these teachers on a regular basis.

My experience of working with the body is also informed by my love of athletics. As an adult I played Capoeira Angola, a Brazilian martial art, intensively for five years and led beginner training classes. These experiences taught me much about the benefits of intentional practice, play and movement.

In 2015, I injured my back and was unable to walk for more than a few minutes at a time. I have struggled with pain since. Physiotherapy, Chiropractic and regular Yoga practice helped me find movement and ease again.

I juggle a high-stress and demanding corporate job with family life. In my experience breathing techniques, grounding and developing an increased felt -sense, or sense of embodiment, and growing sense of presence. These skills have helped me manage my own stress. I am thrilled to be able to share what I’ve learnt over the years with others.
