How are students going to feel after attending one of your classes?
Restored and revived. Like they found something was missing, and they had it all along.
What is your story with Yoga?
Long story short, I was a very lost teenager, losing someone close to me forced me to grow up and figure my way out of a black hole, so I found Yoga through meditation. For years I sat on the floor with my headphones in, eyes closed and couldn't believe the calm, soothing, cocooned feeling I received from it. A few years later I replaced drugs & partying with going to this thing called Ashtanga Yoga, and what a revelation it was! To find structure, discipline and a sense of connection in a deeply rooted and magical way.
I believe my life's work is to honour the great beauty around us, and my story with Yoga has just begun at the first chapter.

What’s your favourite snack?
BIG snacker over here. I can't choose one... Crisps (or chips, but I am not American!) marmite, oranges, pickles and popcorn. And candy. So much candy.
What do you do for self-care?
Reflection, taking a moment to stop and breathe and notice all shades of the inside at that present moment, both dark an light. Go to boxing. Hug my partner. Call my dad in the UK. Eat candy. Play an instrument.
