training and experience 


My own yoga journey began 20 years ago. From my first class I was struck by the beautiful, transformative power of this practice to bring a joyful sense of balance to mind, body and spirit, in the midst of busy London life. Since then I have explored and studied under a variety of yoga traditions.
