I am a Registered Yoga and Yoga Therapy Teacher with the Yoga Alliance UK and am fully insured through them, as well as being a friend of The Society of Yoga Practitioners. I teach general & corporate yoga classes, bespoke 1:1 therapeutic sessions and run retreats, trainings and workshops both online and in person. I’m also co-director of two different yoga studios – Love Yoga Ltd in Aberdeen, and Kali Yoga & Wellness in Ellon. I am also trained in culinary nutrition through the Academy of Culinary Nutrition and am a cheerleader for clean eating and its ability to transform our energy, mood, health and our wellbeing.
My personal practice incorporates physical postures (asana), breath-work (pranayama), mantra and meditation. I have a fantastic, incredibly experienced teacher and mentor who lives and breathes yoga and for whom I have an enormous amount of respect. He skilfully guides and advises me as I walk this life-changing path.
As well as holding yoga teacher training qualifications in Ashtanga Vinyasa, Vinyasa Yoga and the Vinyasa Krama, and having amassed over 15,000hrs teaching yoga over the last 10 years, I have also completed an 800hr Yoga Therapy Teacher Training with a 150hr Yoga Therapy internship in Chennai, India with my wonderful teacher Dr NC, who is both a medical Dr and was head of Yoga Therapy at the Krishnamacharya Yoga Mandarim by personal request of Sri Desikachar for more than 15 years.
Yoga Therapy training in the tradition of Sri Krishnamacharya trained me to tailor yoga to each individual specific needs addressing whatever they’re facing whether that be physical problems, physiological conditions or diseases, or emotional and psychological issues. Throughout my training and since I have worked with a great variety of individuals and have seen truly fantastic results in students who are prepared to engage with a personal practice to help themselves through their issues. The list of teachers and courses will keep growing as I continue to study and develop on my yoga journey – something I hope to be doing all my days.
I’m very enthusiastic about yoga and the benefits it brings and really believe that everyone can benefit from it. I consider myself very blessed to be able to share what I’ve learned so far and hopefully share some of the joy and positivity it has brought.
