Title: Teacher

The day I received my 200hr Yoga Teacher diploma from Santosha Yoga School was a very special day. It marked an important step towards turning my passion for my own self-practice into something that I now share with others as a yoga teacher.

I have been practising yoga for over 10 years, initially as a student here at Santosha Yoga Studio, and then also through a regular home practice. I continue to explore new areas of my practice through workshops and training and bring this into my teaching.

My personal practice is a strong Hatha based combination of long holds to build strength, and breath led flow sequences to build stamina.

Students of my class here at Santosha can expect a similar mix. We will take time to explore poses, focusing on alignment and cues to allow you to progress in poses, along with flow sequences to get energy moving in the body and build stamina.

My classes also integrate meditation techniques, breath work and a focus on the Chakras to bring added depth.

I hope you will join me for an energising Sunday morning practice. Until then, here's what some of my students have to say:

"Each class is a build up to a sequence or pose/poses which I find very helpful as I tend to lack confidence in my practice, but time is taken to ensure alignment and poses are correct which is great."

"Your approach was a great balance between patience and task master!"

"As a regular yoga practioner I found your classes very benefical. You took such care to teach us each pose in detail."
