I have learned that life is manifested through our experiences, and when we are mindful of this, it opens up a range of possibilities that allow us to make conscious choices in order to thrive. Through my yoga classes, I offer a mix of different techniques which originate from Bhakti, Jnana, Raja, Karma and Hatha yoga to connect one’s body, mind, emotions and spirit to the present moment. I like to tap into different perspectives and philosophies, therefore each class is varied from the other. But I always hold a safe space to explore. My classes are open to all levels, including pregnant women.
I have been practising yoga for over 12 years and am a 500hr RYT yoga teacher in advanced Hatha, Yin yoga, Pranayama and Meditation. I am also a qualified Teen Yoga and Mindfulness teacher. I love yoga and I love helping others to enable them to have a healthy, happy and balanced life. My classes are great for people new to yoga who would like to develop a safe and non-competitive personal practice and incorporate it into their daily life and also valuable for more experienced people who would like to revisit a traditional hatha class and enhance their practice by going back to the foundations and reconnect with their body and mind on a deeper level.
I have been teaching Pilates to people of all abilities for the last 20 years. I trained with and am a member of Body Control Pilates
which is the leading Pilates educator in the country. Whatever your fitness level, Pilates has something to offer you.
I love to see the positive impact my classes have on my clients. Improvements to their posture and core strength. I always try to make my classes fun as well as challenging and believe that the principals of Pilates can help you in your everyday life. Pilates is so much more than the hour spent in the class! Come and join me!
I have explored a diverse range of yoga styles over the last 20 years. My classes weave together the precision of Iyengar Yoga, the breath-movement synchronisation of Vinyasa yoga, the “dropping in” to postures found in Scaravelli yoga and the fun and connection of Partner Yoga. We will explore these styles in more depth, in order to find out which ones work best for us.
Students will discover how a yoga practice can be experienced as a moving meditation. We will also learn how yoga can structurally re-align the body, calm the mind, and allow one to tap into a greater reservoir of lifeforce energy.
After twelve years of practice, I remain astounded by the positive impact yoga has had on my body, overall wellbeing and ability to face life's challenges with more calm and acceptance. I am trained in Vinyasa Flow and Scaravelli-inspired yoga, and generally just love to move! Prior to founding zenw2, I worked nationally as a learning lead for a mental health and addictions charity, and my teaching style is undeniably influenced by psychotherapeutic approaches that enable personal growth and change. In my classes you can expect a balanced focus on movement, strength, breath and graceful coordination.
My passion for yoga was ignited in 2005 and what keeps me hooked on it is that practising it feels so good! And not just for the body. Yoga can bring a sense of wellbeing that can filter into every moment of your life, and that is precisely what I hope to pass on in my classes. I have a Level 4 Diploma in Teaching from the British Wheel of Yoga and am also trained in Vinyasa Flow. My classes are designed to improve physical strength, flexibility, coordination and balance. I consider the breath to be an essential part of yoga, and encourage a mindful practice in order to develop self-awareness and promote a sense of calm, balance and well-being.
