In 2017 I qualified as a sports massage therapist – see the massage tab for more information about the relaxation and remedial massages I offer.
My general style of yoga teaching is Hatha yoga in that there is asana, pranayama and meditation. However, I don’t hold with rigid conformity and believe each person is the best teacher for themselves in terms of understanding their own body, particularly when it comes to the ‘shapes’ or postures. The ethos of my classes is to seek the unity of the breath, the mind, the body, and your ‘self’.
My yoga background is in Hatha yoga and all its sub variants. For 10 years I practised Ashtanga yoga with Richard Adamo. I regularly attend yoga workshops and retreats with a variety of different teachers and backgrounds and currently am most influenced by Jivamukti yoga and also Peter Blackaby‘s approach. Even though that may seem quite diverse, I like the freedom both give, in their different ways.
I have also attended workshops with Finlay Wilson (aka Kilted Yoga), Peter Blackaby (several times), David Sye (several times), Lisa McRory, Liz Lark, Billy Doyle, John Scott, Granville Cousins, Bill Wood, Antonia Boyle, Anna Semlyen (back care), Philip Xerri, Dru Yoga, and been on retreats to Mandala Yoga Ashram, Taraloka, the SRMHC, and in Italy with Walter Ruta. I have undertaken pregnancy and post-natal yoga training with Uma Dinsmore-Tuli.
In August 2018 I moved to Dumfries, south west Scotland, after living in Wales for 20 years. Scotland is the land of my birth and I’m very glad to be back home.
