I was drawn to yoga whilst working as a busy professional amid the freneticism of London life. My yoga practice has been a natural anchor through many of life’s inevitable ups and downs.
I aim to create a nurturing space, focusing on breath-based movement, self-care and mindfulness. I believe in moving slowly to the rhythm of the breath as a way of building strength, balance and flexibility, in both body and mind.
In particular, I found yoga postures and breathing techniques to be a great help during pregnancy and the early days of being a mum to my sons, who are also yoga enthusiasts themselves!
I teach Flow, Pregnancy, Postnatal and Baby Yoga.

“The birth was intense, amazing and quick. I believe that latter was due, in part, to lots of pregnancy yoga so many thanks for your wonderful classes. I look forward to joining your postnatal classes in the future.” Saskia

"This workshop equipped my partner and I with pretty much everything we needed to know for labour and birth. Almon covered a lot of ground and it was also a very relaxing afternoon, where my partner and I connected with bump. Hugely recommended!" Mary
I believe in moving slowly to the rhythm of the breath as a way of building strength, balance and flexibility, in both body and mind. This practice allows for focus on alignment and mindful movement between postures.
I have a regular Flow Yoga practice and change my focus from gentle to challenging depending on my emotional and physical needs.
Having experienced the benefits of Pregnancy Yoga personally, I believe the practice enables soon-to-be Mamas to stay positive in body and mind during an exciting and often uncertain time.
My classes focus on breathing and relaxation techniques, as well as postures which strengthen and stretch the body. Enabling Mamas-to-be to maintain or gain fitness, while reducing anxiety in preparation for labour and motherhood.
Postnatal with Baby Yoga
My Postnatal with Baba Yoga classes are a special time set aside for Mamas and babas to focus on the benefits of touch, movement and relaxation. Specialist Postnatal Yoga sequencing will help tone and strengthen Mamas muscles, improve posture and combat fatigue.
For babas there will be playful movement, songs and gentle massage to promote sleep, digestion and overall healthy development.
