Want to feel more in charge of both your physical and mental health?
Learn to practice yoga on your own.
I’ll help you get started, stay safe and build a practice with you that builds fitness, strength, flexibility in body and mind, self awareness and esteem, compassion and kindness too. Enjoy better relationships and a better state of mind (we all tend to get along better when we’re happier in ourselves). Learn to take time out for yourself in a meaningful and constructive way.
If you’re looking for yoga lessons, or have any questions at all, please do get in touch. I offer free phone consultations without any pressure or obligation.
Ashtanga Vinyasa offers a series of set postures that we learn off by heart. The postures are strung together in such a way that they progress slowly in building strength, fitness and mobility within the body. Each movement is coordinated with gently measured breath, helping to balance out and regulate the nervous system and settle the mind.
Most importantly, because the sequence is set, as students we’re able to learn and practice on our own: building self reliance, discipline and focus. Being able to practice independently allows us to create space for self enquiry and self awareness on a daily basis. This is how yoga can become really effective both in becoming a meditative practice and one that helps us become more aware of how we work with scenarios and moods that we will come across in day to day life. How we deal with challenges in our yoga practice will mirror how we react to challenge in our day to day life. If we can learn to choose different responses on our mat we can take that away off our mat.
I have been teaching yoga since 2009, having studied under many wonderful teachers: principally John Scott and Lucy Crawford, David Keil , Manju Jois, Greg Nardi (all Ashtanga), also Uma Dinsmore-Tuli (yoga specifically for women’s health), Matthew Sanford (Adaptive Yoga), Michael Stone and Simon Borg Olivier.

Lessons and classes
The vast majority of my classes are small and community based. I take a maximum of between 6 and 8 people in each class, so that you get the individual attention that you deserve. No fancy and anonymous yoga studios!
I teach both in Margate (my home) and for part of the week in central London. I still run my own classes at Health Works in Walthamstow, and work privately with students in their homes or workplaces.
