I teach Yoga, Pilates and Chair Based Exercises in a few East Herts Villages where I have been working for over a decade and still love what I do.
My yoga classes are Seasonal Hatha Vinyasa Flow infused with Yin and Chinese Medicine principles. I’ve studied many bodywork systems such as Qi Gong, Chi Ball, and Somatics. I am constantly studying so who knows what gems I may discover and offer?
Although I teach classes as separate modalities I use my knowledge and own body experience to create intelligent, fun accessible classes that bring the community together.
Guiding people to feel good in their bodies, giving space for busy minds by offering tools to live an active healthy lifestyle so we can enjoy and say YES to life is my passion!
My love of movement started at 4 when gymnastics was the centre of my world. After a back injury at 14 my path was diverted to triathlon, netball, basketball and dance.
After having my daughter I decided for a career change and trained in Pilates, meditation, strength and conditioning as well as cert 3/4 in personal training.
Movement and meditation I believe help individuals have a long and happy life.
