I qualified with 200 hour vinyasa teacher training in June 2016 in Cheltenham.
I got into yoga as a means of keeping my body moving, and keeping my mind calm after stressful days at work. I did my training at the same time as working full time as a Office Manager. After completing the training I took the decision (not a light one at that) to quit my office job and try my hand at teaching and massaging full time.
My teaching style is quite relaxed and I like to bring smiles and humour into practice. I teach a dynamic flow style that will challenge the body and mind, but is suitable for all abilities. Music plays a vital role for me in my classes from start to finish. I went through the Bruta training to become a Broga teacher in July 2016. I use the elements I learnt during the course in order to add some fitness aspects to my classes. As a regular gym goer (Crossfit and functional training included) I try and keep empathy for all my students, no matter what their background- I encourage students to realise that any body can be a yoga body.
Students can expect dynamic movements using sun salutations to get the heart and body moving. Music ranges from relaxing piano to country to old school RnB, all the way to current chart music. You name the genre and I’ve probably played it! I bring the focus onto the body and breath. I like to think my classes are a way of escaping, but also a way to enable my students to learn how they can deal with issues of daily life. As long as you leave with a smile, I’m happy!
