Favourite pose?

Savasana because it was one of my most challenging to enjoy being still and quiet.

Why did you start yoga?

I suffered for many, many years with a chronic debilitating illness and yoga really helped me to face the challenges of that. It truly gave me my life back.

Why did you become a teacher?

When I look back to where I was when I was quite ill to where I am now, I am amazed at how far I have come. I credit yoga with getting me to this place and for making me realise that we are capable of so much more than we think we are. I want to share this with my students and encourage them to see that the impossible is possible on and off their mat.

How do you describe your teaching style?

For me yoga is about connecting breath and movement as a gateway to a deeper spiritual place. It’s a way of finding our way back home to ourselves. So however we move, whether is a strong flow class or a gentle yin class the breath is always the priority over the shapes we make.

What has yoga has taught you?

The impossible is possible.

What do you want your students to know?

The impossible is possible. Its the greatest thing yoga has taught me. That I am capable of so much more than I ever believed and they are too.
