I’ve been practicing yoga for 18 years. I started attending yoga classes at my workplace and it was love at first downward dog…well almost. Upon starting a weekly practice of yoga I soon realised that this was the ‘something’ that had been missing in my life. It cleared my mind and helped me manage hip and back pain, which I thought was due to my love of cycling or terrible mattresses from rented accommodation! I was amazed by the variety of yoga postures and I was encouraged that there really is something for everyone, (even those with short hamstrings!)
I practiced yoga more intensely over the following years with a focus on Hatha, Yin and Jivamukti. Eventually undertaking my first Yoga Teacher training and since then I haven’t looked back. I am following my true passion in life.
2015 was a big year of change for me, I moved to Oxted, Surrey to be closer to my family and create a better work/life balance. Yoga and meditation really helped me through this period of transition and I would have felt lost without the feeling of stability that it brings to me. In 2017, following the birth of my first baby, I felt drawn to work in women’s health. Post birth a number of aches reappeared in my body that I had thought were long behind me. It is partly this that has driven me to specialise in Women’s Health.
