About

 

I offer somatic yoga and sacred song rooted in Non-Dual Tantra, community + playfulness.

With a life spent training in the creative body, I’ve been forever fascinated by the body’s ability to creatively express; Yoga being key in that journey since I emerged jelly-kneed from an Iyengar class in my teens. 

A long time devotee of TKV Desikachar’s teachings, I've been much guided over the last decade by studies in Yoga Philosophy with Oxford Centre for Hindu Studies, Somatics with Tias Little and Satu Tuomela + anatomy with Leslie Kaminoff. Presently I count the inspiring Paula Andreewitch as my main teacher.

My practice & teaching incorporates flowing movement, Non-Dual philosophical teachings and playful proprioception work which I believe can invite healthy bodily connection and joy. Classes have been described as ‘nurturingly powerful,' which I think is a good fit; guided by my genuine belief in the value of community and our individual creative potential within it. Philosophical teachings tend to frame lots of asana options that welcome all bodies in varying degrees of challenge. As Lao Tzu suggests, we can always be much inspired by nature, and I'm interested in how movement can enliven our awareness of the natural rhythms and flow of life within us. Reminding us of our place within the wider ecosystem of nature, so we can evolve as better people in service to it.

As a lover of Bhakti, sound and music play a part in what I share with the trusty accompaniment of my beloved harmonium. I adore offering sound work across the UK with the aim of empowering people to use their voices as the tools of creativity and expression they are very much designed to be.

I run regular Kirtans and song circles sharing modern medicine song and traditional Vedic mantras and as a Level 3 Qualified Ayurvedic Massage Therapist and Embodied Mama pregnancy yoga teacher I work with embodied touch too.

Somatic workshops and retreats across the UK are a big part of my offering with my teacher and friend Steve Taylor, which we offer in collaboration with a community of herbalists, healers and chefs we are passionate about supporting.

I curate internationally at festivals & run wellbeing projects that bring yoga and creative practices to isolated + specialist groups. Working in the mountains in Bulgaria once a year curating a space called Mesa at Meadows. 

People I cherish working with include:

 

Land Skills Fair
