Please contact me for a chat, I'm always happy to talk about all things yoga & meditation.
It is always great to see familiar & new faces on the mat, moving mindfully, exploring together.
Be imperfectly perfect and ardently curious.
Although adhering to some of the principles of traditional yoga practice—breathwork, bodywork, mental focus and relaxation—I deeply believe yoga should be accessible to everyone and we can all have fun with the process.
I am a movement amalgamator and encourage practitioners to find an authenticity in their movement and an integrity in how our bodies function often stepping far away from how many believe a pose ‘should’ look.
I try to share an experience more than a class and always in a light hearted, accessible approach.
In addition to teaching yoga, yin yoga and meditation (see events & classes section) I am also a Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Provider.
If you are a yoga teacher looking to keep your cpd points up to date I can provide you with accredited courses which may not appear within my public events area.
Please get in touch for details.

Weekly Community Class
Argyle Tennis Club
Argyle Rd, Churchtown
Southport PR9 9LH
Tues 9.30am £7.50
An open casual community class for all.
This is a mixed class and we welcome all ages and abilities.
We practice around half the session yin yoga, passive poses on the floor, held for a couple of minutes then move our bodies, ease into our joints, raise our heart rate and explore both traditional yoga and more maverick patterns, finishing with relaxation.
The room is warm, parking is free and there is no commitment just roll up when you want to, I always give plenty of notice if the class is not on, or organise a cover teacher and you can text to check if you wish.
If you are new, have an injury or limited mobility please come a little earlier for a chat .
If you already have a mat please bring it along, but all equipment is provided.
Any questions at all contact me via the bottom of the page.
If meditation was a pill everyone would take it.
We are all aware of the mind body benefits of meditation yet are often at a loss where to start or how to access the stress relieving, health boosting fruits of a meditation practice- yet we already have all the tools we need and I will show you how to use them.
So much more than sitting in rigid silence, these sessions will teach you how to choose a style that appeals to you and suits your lifestyle by initially exploring several types of meditation.
One size does not fit all and it is daunting, false and off putting to be forced to fit an unyielding discipline.
We do not all like the same food for example, so we begin with a suck it and see approach then delve deeper as we proceed.
One of the key elements to these sessions is learning the secret of consistency, application and daily use.
Wear any comfortable clothes.

Private Sessions 1:1
A 1:1 session is ideal for those with limited mobility, mobility issues, in rehab from an injury, or those not wishing to or not confident enough to join busy, more pacey studio classes.
Whatever your initial reason for coming, we will have a phone consultation prior to your session and the classes will be tailored specifically to your changing needs.
I have a comprehensive range of props to assist new practioners and further the more seasoned yogi.
You will be made to feel welcome and comfortable in your own skin, yoga is for every body.
All private sessions take place at my purpose built home studio.
£25 per hour
One Off 1:1 Sessions
One off sessions are ideal for people who are working on a particular aspect of strength or flexibility.
After discussing aims of the session in advance, it will be tailored to you with openers and exercises you can work on in your regular yoga classes or home practice.
Sometimes you just need a breakdown of a posture, time to have a go, and not feel the pressure of being in a class environment.
And yes, it is perfectly ok to use the session to be spotted into an asana to take a photo for social media- photos and videos make great learning tools.
All private sessions take place in my purpose built home studio.
£25 per hour
NQT Mentoring & Support
Finding your voice or lost your way? Maybe thinking of teacher training?
A good teacher is a good communicator and teaching yoga is more than your own practice. People skills, studio politics and limited mobility issues can be a minefield. Confidential support, resources, information and use of studio space combined with coaching and business planning will help you get started.
I have supported and helped numerous people and anonymity is assured, if you are feeling vulnerable or insecure the last thing you want is it being publicised.
This is no charge for this 'buddy' service, if I can help you I will, however, if you cannot fit in with when I am free or require more time, lets have a chat and consider a 1:1 session.
However after informally mentoring many individuals I have also put together some small support groups which are developing with extremely strong results, Autumn 2019 will see a formalised structured system with individual accountability and group support. Please contact me for more information.
In addition, I am a registered Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Provider for conscientious teachers collecting their continued professional development points. I build, deliver and provide courses for teachers maintaining their professional standards. Feel free to contact me for course information.

Mon-Thurs 9.30am- 3.30pm

Whilst a seperate qualification is not needed to teach the niche art of yin yoga, there are still deep misunderstandings about the basic concepts of the practice.
This course will equip you as a teacher with the pedagogy to become class confident and bulletproof in your knowledge when structuring and delivering classes to meet your students requirements.
We will delve deep into the principles, history, intent and anatomy of yin- studying its unique defining elements as wellas the indisputable benefits for the body, mind, joints and tissues.
Exploring our fascinating web if fascia and supporting our anatomy with current scientific findings and reviewing terminology definitions of stretch and stress and investigating purist topics such as hot yin, yin/yang and other anomalies.
Learn how to bring yin to life for your students and create variations and safe modifications for all abilities. In a supportive environment we will look at class management, empathy, creating private sessions, workshops and focus classes.
Clearly delineating the characteristics of true yin without blurring the lines between restorative or hatha you will gain an excellent grounding. Be prepared to get hands on as we journey through alternative ways to study, catering to all learners- visual, auditory, kinaesthetic and reader writers. After all your students will all experience your teaching in very different ways.
Knowledge, meaningful experience, personalised learning, community, critical reflection and growth are the cornerstones of the course and a pledge to support your continued study with access to me for continued study , resources and mentorship.
A guest expert will also be attending.
