I’m a qualified yoga teacher and massage therapist in Dumfries, Scotland.

I teach yoga classes in Dumfries (scroll down for more info). I teach occasional wellbeing workshops and offer 1-to-1 personal yoga sessions. See links for more info.

Update 16th March

From Tuesday 17th onwards, all my yoga and massage is suspended. The UK Government policy is for social distancing, restricting all contact or gathering to the absolute essentials only. There is no need to take unnecessary risks, so please practice at home and keep well. 

But the good news is:

  • I have free meditation and breathing tracks
  • I have free short movement videos (5 mins long, can be done as breaks in your day)
  • I have free movement routine handouts

Find links to them on the Free Stuff menu option
