Hello and welcome!
Thank you for an opportunity to share my love of yoga with you.
A bit about me
Based in Sheffield, I have been practicing yoga since 1984, first qualifying as an Iyengar yoga teacher in 1991.
Like many of us I came to yoga hoping to become stronger, more relaxed and flexible. From the outset I loved the way practice seemed to make me two inches taller, lift my spirits and point me to an inner stillness.
For most of these years I combined my yoga teaching with other work in social care, early years, quality and training and bringing up a family. In 2010 we went to live in the beautiful city of Budapest, Hungary where I continued teaching some yoga both to groups and individuals.
Over the years yoga has proved to be a true friend. At different times it has provided me with a place of balance, stability and safety; a place for un-doing tension; a means for integrating body, mind and breath; a way of opening the heart, glimpsing joy and inner stillness; a place for learning and growth; a place for development, reflection, creativity and challenge, helping me respond to life’s inevitable obstacles.
I teach at the Sheffield Yoga Centre, at Zag Yoga and also in my yoga space at home where I can deliver one-to-one yoga and small group classes.
Ultimately my intention is for every student to leave the class feeling uplifted and empowered, integrated, more collected, centred, at ease, at one.
