experience, influences, & training

I was introduced to a regular yoga practice and sadhana with my London-based teacher, Elizabeth Garvey (London Fields Yoga). Over the years I have taught and studied in India, Mexico and the UK. 

I have a great amount of love, respect and gratitude for Elizabeth, my first regular teacher who taught me the value of yoga and encouraged me to go deeper into my practice. It is at Elizabeth's small personable studio in East London that I was also fortunate enough to be taught by Bess Shipside.


I recognise Rohini Oberoi and Sandeep, who led my teacher training with Sivananda. Their thoroughness and warmth gave me the foundations for my teaching – I still draw on everything I learnt from them, through the teachings of Swami Sivananda. 


It's with great love that I also recognise Carly Mountain (teaching here in Sheffield) who has been such an incredible influence in my life over the last three years, setting me on an irreversible path of discovery of sexuality, spirituality, poetry, and femininity. Likewise, I am forever inspired by the wonderfully empowering teachings of Uma Dinsmore Tuli and the lessons of the Santosa Community. 

I keep up to date with the work of Yoli Maya Yeh and Theo Wildcroft.
