About your tutor

My Yoga journey started in 1999. Whilst I came to yoga for physical reasons, I also began to notice a general improvement in my mood and well being. As I gained strength & stability, I became more aware of how I was moving and this helped with a reduction in pain. In recent years I have become more curious about the therapeutic applications of Yoga and how it affects life off the mat, and am particularly interested the in effects of thoughts and language on our physiology, as well as our physiology’s effects on our mind. My teaching style could be described as either Functional Yoga, or Integrative Yoga. To me the “why?” is important. Helping participants connect what we are doing in the class to some aspect of their daily lives. To help them be more aware of how they move, improve & maintain functional movement patterns, learn techniques for meditation, relaxation and calm and find ways to do this off the mat as well as on the mat.
