Which Community Yoga UK classes have you you taught at?

Waitrose Newbury on Monday evenings

What is your favourite style of yoga?

Depends on the day of the week … I teach an alignment-focused style of yoga that has both a very functional application to active bodies and a deeply meditative component of subtle adjustments and deep integration of the breath into the postures and movements.

Sometimes it’s time to flow, others it’s time to hold, both tap into the stillness that underpins everything and supports us in our lives.

Where your own classes are located?

My own classes are based around Theale, West Berkshire and I also do a lot of one-to-one work with individuals, particularly athletes.

What does yoga mean to you?

Yoga has pieced me back together again, both physically and mentally, more times than I can count!  It has been my companion and has kept me going through many sports and many challenges in life and continues to support and balance me for the life I lead today.   I consider it a gift to have the opportunity to share my love of yoga with others.

What is your favourite inspirational quote?

This also depends on the day of the week … my current desktop on my computer is “In the end, only three things matter: how much you loved, how gently you lived, and how gracefully you let go of things not meant for you.” Buddha
