I'm a seeker of joy and inspiration and how to find contentment when the going gets tough – it’s an ongoing work in progress! I'm a lifelong student, curious, determined and passionate. With yoga colouring my life for over 20 years, I’m still finding new depths, challenges and lessons on my mat.
A busy mother of 2 children, I honour my yoga practice deeply and respectfully …. It’s where I can explore my strength and vulnerability, joy and pain, frustration and patience, rage and compassion, drive and procrastination, where I can energise and relax. With continuing devotion to the practice, a yearning for development and staying on the cutting edge of the discipline, I aim to share my discoveries with integrity, humility and warmth.
Yoga permeates my life and I am so grateful for the influence of so many gifted teachers, my students and my family who all continue to inspire.
I am the lead yoga teacher working with Centre for Appearance Research - UWE Bristol exploring the impact of yoga practice on body image with a range of age groups and genders. Our latest paper reported the positive impact of yoga intervention on body image with results lasting for over 3 months. These results have inspired the creation of yoga for body image films (available here soon) and our latest research applies these findings in the development of a yoga intervention for women on their journey with breast cancer.
