About Me

I began the practice of yoga over 20 years ago and found it to be a stabilizing force throughout the years caring for my young children. After moving to the US from the UK in 2009

I decided to formally train as a yoga instructor. I began with 200hr training with Yogafit and more recently completed 300 hours training with Mark Stephens in Santa Cruz. Along the path I have trained with other great teachers,  Camella Nair, Matece Skow, Jill Miller, and Leslie Kaminoff.

I spent many years teaching gentle yoga for the YMCA as well as running my own yoga classes in the Santa Cruz mountains where I live. Currently I am working on adding retreats and a 200hr training in gentle yoga to my offerings. I want to make teacher training available to everyone.

My goal in my work is to cultivate a nurturing environment which facilitates deep relaxation and a sense of peace. It is here that true transformation can occur. I believe it is this that is lacking in a go-go society. Helping students find balance is the key leading a happier, healthier, life.

When not practicing yoga, I enjoy spending time with my family and pets, and being in nature, loving the mountains and the beach in equal measures. I love pretending I am an artist and have recently taken up pottery making.
