I began practicing Yoga in 1997, initially to complement my career as a dancer with companies including the English National ballet, Birmingham Royal Ballet and Spanish National Ballet. At 23 my desire to pursue yoga overtook my desire to dance, prompting me to train as a teacher. I have been blessed to have travelled extensively in India, studying many styles including Ashtanga, Sivananda, Iyengar and Traditional Hatha, learning from many great teachers including Richard Freeman, David Svenson, Liz Lark, Padma Nair, Vinay Kumar, Wim Hof, Yogacharya Venkatesha, Acharye Hema, and many more. I would also like to acknowledge the influence in my life of spiritual teacher Mata Amritanandamayi, the plant medicines, and most of all; the animals and plants of the natural world…including the human animal!
