To help you recalibrate each day will begin with a meditation and a ‘slow flow’ practice and in the afternoon to help you recharge a Restorative, Somatic and Yoga Nidra will bring you back to your source to nourish you. We will work from earth to sky bringing body, mind and soul back into its true essence. Everyone is welcome.
I started teaching yoga after a back injury sixteen years ago. I have been inspired by the ‘Shadow Yoga’ of Shandor Remete which combines Hatha Yoga, Tai-Chi and dance, the ‘Prana Flow’ of Shiva Rea and more recently the Restorative SATYA (somatic awareness training for yoga asana) of Tias Little. I study the I-Rest Yoga Nidra of Richard Miller and teach SUP (stand-up paddle-board) Yoga which mirrors my love of the ocean. My teaching harnesses the mind and the body with the breath and with the alignment of Iyengar, builds up slowly through waves of postures and modifications are always offered. I teach in London at The Life Centre, and on retreats on the Greek Islands and Costa Rica. I teach stressed professionals privately, people with scoliosis and injuries and will always try and meet you where you are in your practice. I have a B.A in Psychology and an MSc in Neuroscience and have published in the ‘Journal of Consciousness’. I love teaching and weave in all the wisdom that is passed onto me through many inspiring teachers to help you grow with your flow and be your ‘best you’. I speak French and Italian but a smile says much more.
