I teach Vinyasa Flow Yoga; my classes flow with the breath and include elements of the Ashtanga Primary series. I focus on different asanas (or postures) each week to add variety, and I want you to leave a class feeling strengthened, challenged, balanced and restored. Those new to yoga are very welcome to come to any class as I give modifications for every posture. I am very happy to teach pregnant women in my general classes but would encourage women to contact me to discuss their needs.
In the recent pandemic I also started to offer live online classes which have been a useful extension and continue to be popular as attendees can practise yoga from home or holiday.
I am so lucky, the people I teach are lovely so the groups are always welcoming and fun, so you are very welcome to come along to a class to try it out.
My Yoga Training
I started practising Ashtanga Yoga at ‘On the Mat’ with Celeste Lau in 2000 when I lived in Singapore.
I completed the Ashtanga Yoga Glastonbury Teacher Training 200 hour Diploma course, accredited by Yoga Alliance Professionals taught by Jane Piddington in 2016.
I extended my teaching qualifications with a Pregnancy Yoga Teacher Training course with Bristol City Yoga in 2018. Previously I qualified with the National Childbirth Trust as an antenatal teacher in 1999 and worked as a teacher and as a doula in Singapore. I have already had a number of pregnant women attending my yoga classes and it is great to be able to confidently support them in their practise, although at the moment I do not run any specific pregnancy yoga classes.
I continue to attend classes with Jane Piddington, and have attended workshops with Gregor Maehle, David Keil, David Swenson and Lucy Crawford as part of my continual professional development.
So, that is me, practising, teaching and studying yoga with great enjoyment and fulfilment.
