Information overload? Dissociation with yourself and the present moment? Disconnection with your body? Struggling to find a place of peace and contentment within yourself?
These are common problems faced by people living in today's modern society. Our brains are bombarded with more information than ever before from external sources such as the media, television, mobile phones, books etc. In order to find peace, contentment and stillness within ourselves, it's necessary to de-clutter our mind from the external sensory inputs, to clear space and reconnect with ourselves. Yoga can provide this relief for the MIND.
Through exploring the physical poses of yoga (asanas) we can connect to our BODY. In this age of information overload, we are constantly living in our mind and becoming more disconnected with our body. This extends to how we sit, stand, walk and breathe. How often during the day do you pay attention to your body? Many people only pay attention to the body when it's crying out for attention through pain, injury and tension. Yoga creates bodily awareness. For most of my life I lived in my body like it was a shell/casing for my mind. Since discovering yoga I have been introduced to my body as a source of great joy, pleasure and wonderment. The body is an incredible organism full of wisdom and intelligence. Yoga can help you unlock the power of your body, breath and mind.
My practice is focused on yoga as a MEDITATIVE MOVEMENT practice with a clear focus on breathwork, linking movement to breath, and strengthening the mind-body connection.

I can travel to a client's home or provide a studio space.
I offer a free consultation/first session to discuss your needs, goals and my offering. My sessions include the physical poses (asanas), breathwork (pranayama), meditation as well as elements of yoga philosophy. I can also incorporate self-reflection and self-enquiry activities into my sessions depending upon your needs, desires and goals. My physical yoga flows are creative flows with options provided throughout to cater for different levels. I also incorporate elements of qigong into the physical practice as it's a great complimentary practice to yoga with a focus on movement and breath to balance your mind, body and spirit/chi/energy.
