WHEN THINGS CHANGE INSIDE YOU, THINGS CHANGE AROUND YOU
i truly believe that we all have the capacity to glow
We are born with a certain resonance of light and natural luminescence. Our light might feel dimmed or hidden in a place inside, so that we feel completely disconnected from it, but it is always there shining steady at our centre. We just need to know how to navigate our way back to it.
Yoga, meditation and other holistic practices have freed me from a heightened state of anxiety, panic attacks and feeling imbalanced. I avoided these shadows for many years, trying different types of escapism (not many of them helpful) until I finally found my way onto my yoga mat. And that saved me.
The practices gave me the space to make better life choices when I felt I didn't have a choice. They still ground me and align the different parts of me, when I need to sooth my soul and calm my jagged breath. And they uplift and empower me to move through life with more ease and, I hope, a tiny bit of grace too. The practices I learnt were, and still are the foundations of my work.
WHAT STARTED AS MY SURVIVAL TOOLS HAS BECOME MY PASSION TO HELP OTHERS CONNECT TO THIS EXPANSIVE STILLNESS WITHIN -
WHERE YOUR NATURAL GLOW OR LUMINESCENCE CAN BE UNCOVERED AND CULTIVATED.
Find space where there has been contraction and a deep, loving, respectful relationship with your life-long partner - your breath!
My journey began in the big city lights of London, where I lived a very corporate life. I began to squeeze in as much yoga as I could, as it felt like a relief from the demands of life. My appetite for yoga became insatiable, I scaled London looking for teachers, workshops, classes and practices to feed this hunger. A pivotal point was when I did my first teacher training and became a Yoga Alliance Teacher in 2008.
This glorious path meandered across the globe to rural India, Goa and South East Asia, and finally Ibiza for further teacher training. Funny enough, I only left the island to hand in my notice and the rest, as they say, is history. This small island in the middle of the glittering Mediterranean, with its mystical and magical energy, has carved out such a big piece of my heart, that now it is home.
LIVING IN IBIZA HAS GIVEN ME A HUGE AMOUNT OF EXPERIENCE BOTH WORKING PRIVATELY ONE-TO-ONE, AS WELL AS RUNNING HUNDREDS OF RETREATS AS CO-DIRECTOR OF IBIZA RETREATS.
My classes and programmes honour the unique stories and needs of all those who attend them and I simply love meeting a variety of people from all corners of the globe. I love that most of my clients keep coming back to practise with me!
I follow an intuitive style, weaving together both ancient philosophies and modern styles and techniques that I've learnt along the way. My work honours the yogic principles of stirrum (stability) and sukham (ease) to create equilibrium in the body, to bring balance to our modern nervous systems.
My classes encourage you to be fully present with your own experience, being conscious about your muscular effort, as well as consciously releasing deep held muscular tension. Woven together with the magical flow of the breath.
Hope to see you soon!
