“I am a South London mama with a passion for wellbeing.
My yoga journey began in 2007 on a retreat in Ibiza. I initially practised Astanga and Bikram yoga before discovering Dynamic Vinyasa Yoga, a powerful yoga style which stretches and strengthens your whole body. My practice continually evolves and I have been fortunate to study with Dylan Ayaloo, Forrest Yoga guardians, Jambo Truong and Sandra Heider, and Naomi Absalom. I am continually learning and adapting my practice as my lifestyle and body changes.
I have 3 children, a fully grown man-child and 2 little girls. I continued to practise adapted dynamic yoga during the latter two pregnancies for general fitness and to counteract an old back injury from my twenties, aggravated by breastfeeding and carrying my babies around.
In my forties now, my yoga practice has helped maintain my physical health and given me mental techniques to manage the challenges of motherhood.
I have a deepening interest in psychology and the science of wellbeing.”
