About me:

I started practising Yoga due to stress and loved it.
I then decided to train to become a teacher and completed the BWY training. I was also having individual lessons with Sheila Baker, who introduced me to the teachings of Desikachar.
These made so much sense to me I wanted to learn more so did the KHYF training with Gill Lloyd. This involved time in India, which allowed me to work with TKV Desikachar.

In 2014 I came across Somatics. I did the Somatic Movement Educator training, then went onto train to be a Clinical Somatic Practitioner with Martha Peterson.
Somatics has many similarities with Yoga; working with the whole person, sensing movement with the breath and always to the comfort level of the individual. For me Somatics was the missing part of the puzzle, allowing me to free long term muscle stiffness, deepening my Yoga experience and allowing my body to feel free and fluid.
Working with a somatic approach to my Yoga and a yogic approach to my Somatics I hope to allow people to find their own path to pain free, fluid movement.

Learning how movement and the breath can improve someone’s wellbeing is a life long journey.
