Yoga has been a regular part of my life for about 7 years. I practice because it makes me happy. Yoga allows me to have a calmer approach to life and improves my ability to deal with everyday stresses, as well as creating a healthy, strong and flexible mind and body. I completed my 200-hour Vinyasa Yoga teacher training with the Yoga Space and my children’s Yoga teacher training with YogaKidz Worldwide. I enjoy practicing and teaching both fast and slow flow classes and believe there is room for both in anyone’s practice. In my other life, I work as an environmental scientist, restoring the moorlands of the Peak District and South Pennine Moors. I love being outside, be it camping, climbing, hiking, running or open water swimming. I believe you can achieve anything if you really want it and though I may not be the fastest swimmer, I have swum both the River Dart and Hurly Burly 10K’s.
