been enjoying the benefits of yoga for over 30 years
and I'd like you to feel as good as I do!
I worked for a bank when I left school and had attended weekly yoga classes since I was in my teens.
A lovely teacher called Doris encouraged me to train as a yoga teacher back then but it wasn't the right time for me.
Many years later, I was going through a difficult time and found that a more frequent yoga practice really made a difference
and helped me to get through. I decided that I'd like to learn more and to help others feel the benefits I was
I left the bank and went to London to train with Yoga Professionals. I graduated with a
CYQ level 3 certificate in advanced exercise and fitness knowledge and teaching yoga. My learning continues through
courses, workshops, reading and, most of all, my students!

Should you try
Everyone can benefit from yoga; male or female, young or old, athletes or those new to exercise.
It's Your yoga!
classes are not competitive and I encourage everyone to find their own level. I'll suggest alternative
postures so that you can choose a gentle or a more challenging practice. We are all unique; we have different
bodies and different levels of fitness - we even feel different from one day to the next and it's important that we choose
a practice which suits us.
Many people come along expecting to stretch and strengthen their
bodies but, after just a few sessions, start to leave with so much more.
Others tell me that
they don’t think that yoga is for them as they're not very flexible - If you think you're too
stiff for yoga - it's probably because you don't practise yoga!
will help you to become more flexible – why not give it a try?

The roots of yoga can be
traced back to India around 5000 years ago, an ancient philosophy and way of life very different to ours. The word Yoga
comes from the Sanskrit word "Yuj" meaning to yoke, join or unite. This implies joining or integrating all aspects
of an individual - body with mind and mind with spirit.
In our modern world,
I see this as restoring the natural balance to our bodies and peace to our minds, which is what I'd like to
help you to achieve.
For people in the West today, yoga is a way of maintaining good health and calm
within our busy modern lives. Yoga postures help to strengthen the body, lose weight, improve flexibility
and relieve many of the symptoms of stress. The relaxation and breathing techniques are effective methods
for us to slow down, relax and unwind.
