I discovered yoga – specifically hot yoga - back in 2011. I had a recurring knee injury thanks to years of running, and hot yoga was a way to keep fit and active while I took a much needed break from pounding the pavements.
In yoga I found everything I was looking for in a form of exercise. It helped to improve my strength, stamina and flexibility, but more than that, it helped me de-stress, to zone out, to clear my mind of worry and anxiety and to bring focus and clarity to my thoughts… all without damaging my knees!
By 2015 I was practicing four to five times a week, and would often spend my weekends attending workshops in Birmingham and beyond. Yoga teacher training seemed like the natural next step, and in 2017 I enrolled on yogahaven's 200 hour teacher training course in Morocco, in January 2018.
my teaching journey
Training under yogahaven owner, Allie Hill, yoga teacher training was a life changing experience for me, as it led to the decision to end my 13 year career as a senior consultant for a global recruitment business and to embark on a new career as a yoga teacher. I began teaching in February 2018, initially one-to-one and small group classes, before being offered regular teaching slots at yogahaven's Birmingham and Solihull studios. I now teach a huge range of yoga classes, from one-to-one and corporate yoga classes online, to in-person private classes and groups of up to 30 at yogahaven in Birmingham.
I teach women and men of all ages and abilities, from complete beginners to experienced yoga practitioners and everyone in between. I truly believe that yoga is for everyone, and I try my best to teach in a way that feels inclusive and accessible. But don't take my word for it - head to my student feedback page to see what my students have to say about my classes.
