"Regain your sparkle and enjoy the lasting benefits of moving with simplicity and freedom. Honest yoga for everybody: creating movement for a modern life."

When asked about my teaching approach and style I describe it as “functional” yoga reflecting my training and experience in ego free Hatha yoga, Iyengar yoga, Feldenkrais, traditional meditation, physio therapy and Pilates. 

People tell me that they want to try yoga, but don't because they're 'not flexible enough' I tell them yoga isn't about attaining the perfect pose, it's not about being 'good enough' or 'right'. Yoga is about removing judgement and letting us be present to who we are right now. Yoga opens up the possibility of connecting to what we already have and to who we already becoming.

Why do Yoga?

Working with the fitness levels of those present  I address whole self and whole health outcomes.  This is proving to be an effective approach for the postural compromises made at work and in our modern lifestyles.   I work to decompress joints and rebalance the stressors that lead to weariness, mental overload, declining emotional resilience and the physical changes of getting older. Taught this way individuals can work for personal benefit not to group standards.  "Who'd have thought such small movements could be so powerful!" KS Highclere Student

Healthy Daily Life

Yoga: helping you live in harmony with yourself


Yoga is a threefold science (movement, breath and mediation).  It does not discriminate and could be described as one of nature’s best wellness practices. It offers relief from suffering for all mankind: householders, professionals, workers young and old from all communities; those with a ‘faith’ and those with none. When you begin to practice, challenges arise that stretch mind and body, challenging one’s limitations whilst enhancing flexibility.   Learning to pay attention to the breath as you move delivers the way to work at your own pace. 

This is why yoga is known as a ‘gentle’ form of exercise, there is nothing meek in learning to challenge stiffness or ‘self-sabotaging habit patterns’ Max Strom ‘A Life Worth Breathing.’


The strength of yoga only truly reveals itself to those that get on the mat and confront.

"I just wanted to thank you. I have never been to a yoga class before, so I had no idea of what to expect! While I felt frustrated that there seemed so much I couldn't do, and thought that probably I hadn't managed to do any of the exercises properly, I wake this morning to feel, somehow, that my body is more level? Balanced? Lengthened? I also slept through from 10pm to 5.40am without waking at all, which is completely unheard of for me. Coincidence? Anyway, I feel sufficiently different this morning to want to give it another go!
