About


About
I used to practice as a teenager with my mother at a local community hall.  I remember seeing a woman do a headstand in the middle of the room, and spent a long time convincing myself, that, as that is physically impossible, it didn't happen.

I took up yoga practice whilst suffering with depression in my early 20s, and found it made me feel profoundly 'different'. I sparkled. Yoga, spiritual practice and movement practice always amaze me by their capacity to heal, soothe & inspire.
In 2015 I went to Bali to train in Ashtanga Vinyasa, rescued a kitten, wrote a few bad songs, and felt renewed..

Fast forward five years, I have over 500 hours training in Vinyasa, Mandala, Yin & Forrest. You can find me teaching around SE London, sometimes dragging my handpan onto crowded trains. I have spent time teaching in India & hosting international retreats.
I am a Reiki Level II Practitioner and Bodyworker, and nowadays frequently stand on my own head.


Click ​here​​​ to sign up to my mailing list - I keep that a little more updated & interesting.

This site is under construction - as is my life.
Which is a dramatic and not entirely accepting way of saying that the global situation has affected me deeply - as it has countless others. I am in the process of picking up pieces, forming new pathways, & holding deep shifts.
New joys are coming.
