About me

HOW DID I GET INTO WELLBEING AND WHAT ARE MY CREDENTIALS?

 

Having trained as a dancer and working briefly in the professional dance industry I was always body concious. I developed disordered eating habits, fluctuating weight and anxiety. These problems saw me leave my professional dance career and return to University seeking ‘a job that made me happy’. I thrived at Uni and living in London accessed excellent cognitive and nutritional therapy which helped with my body image and self esteem issues. The story however didn’t end there. I graduated with a first class design degree and soon had a glamourous high profile job in London. Under pressure working long hours with litte down time I relapsed. I was just a few years into my corporate career and dependent on stimulants to keep going. Caffeine, alcohol, poor eating and weight loss saw my anxiety return with a vengeance. I missed dancing felt like I’d compromised my dreams and didn’t fit the desk job. I needed a longer term solution and I was determined to find it. I quit the work hard play hard lifestyle, returned to therapy and most significantly I began to practice Yoga. By the time I had my first child I was certain returning to high pressured corporate life was not for me. I was coming alive again, passionate and keen to explore my new and healthier lifestyle habits further. I pursued studies in nutrition and mindfulness as well as training to teach yoga with the most amazing yoga mentor and Teacher. I feel fabulous and have never looked back. Through yoga & plant based nutrition I know how to fuel myself with food & exercise. I feel strong and flexible in mind as well as body. I practice emotional self-awareness, how to catch signs of pushing down or ignoring valuable feelings and emotions. I recognise ideas and beliefs that are out of date conditioning or holding me back.

Yoga has helped me

Yoga was the whole package, sure I had and have many wonderful teachers, therapists, friends and family but my time on the mat and in meditation fundamentally changed my life and that’s yogas big magic! Now I live my dreams and love my work inspiring others to do what they love!

WHAT ARE MY PASSIONS AND WHAT MOTIVATES ME ?

Being a Mum of 3 I’m really driven to share with kids that movement an exercise can be fun, interesting and non competitive.

It’s an exciting time for me and my rapidly expanding business, my passion is to share the tools, resources and enjoyment yoga and holistic lifestyle can
offer so others can thrive as I have. Profound change is possible with exercise that people love and enjoy in an environment that is safe and supportive.

My classes and coaching courses offer opportunities for healing, transformation and change from the smallest steps to giant leaps.
