Keep it simple

Mission Statement



My aim is to connect with each individual, helping students to develop their own practice and reconnect to themselves. Using yoga as a tool to inspire a rich and fulfilling life.


To form a relationship of trust and confidence with all students, enabling us to work together and improve  physical and mental health and wellbeing.


My goal is to support and empower not only those who are able to afford and enjoy regular yoga practice but vulnerable people who have previously been unable to access such a service or who have felt uncomfortable in doing so.






"Truth is the same always. Whoever ponders it will get the same answer. Buddha got it. Patanjali got it. Jesus got it. Mohammed got it. The answer is the same, but the method of working it out may vary this way or that"

Swami Satchidananda, The Yoga Sutras

My Journey



This journey began with an overwhelming need to change –my life and career choices had been made by someone I no longer was, I was stuck in habits that did not serve me, I constantly felt unfulfilled and restless, with no sense of purpose, inspiration or excitement. I struggled with post-traumatic stress disorder, body dysmorphia and chronic fatigue. Being unable to think my way out of the situation, I began rigorous application of anything practical that seemed to help.


Yoga gives me such freedom from my difficulties with personal health, addiction and body image that I feel compelled to share it with others. I am blessed to be part of a recovery fellowship that has given me a bridge to normal living and empowers me to change my life and work towards helping others to do the same. This mantra is always with me;


"We can only keep what we have by giving it away."
