About me

Due to the pandemic all classes are now online.

Hatha Yoga: regular classes in Portswood and Shirley Warren, Southampton: postural work, breath work, relaxation and meditation

I trained to teach Yoga Nidra, a technique for deep relaxation inspired by Swami Satyananda; and with Julie Friederberger to teach people living with cancer.

I teach restorative Yoga one-to-one and to small classes in Highfield. I also take on small regular groups there (2 or 3 people) and teach them according to their needs and ability.

I organise workshops on various topics. In the Summer Term, I have three 2 hours workshops planned in Portswood: Meditation, pranayama (level 1 and 2) and Basic principles of Ayurveda. Phone or email for more details.

I regularly update my training by attending further training sessions and workshop, as required by my organisation the British Wheel of Yoga.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have originally trained with the Yoga Training Centre in London (YTC), after an initial Foundation Course with Wendy Harding in Poole in 2011, I completed the full 500 hours of the British Wheel of Yoga Teacher Training Level 4 Certificate (BWYQ),which includes modules on philosophy and meditation, in 2014. More recently I also trained with the Sivananda Ashram in Orleans France; and I did the advanced course in March/April last year, in the Himalayas.

My classes are integrative of the whole spectrum of Yoga, including asanas (postures), pranayama (breathing practice), relaxation and meditation. All classes have an underlying philosophical theme, which is the essence of Yoga.

I am also teaching less mobile people, whether this might be due to age or illnesses. I taught a session fortnightly with the Wessex Cancer trust in Cosham for 4 years and I am now teaching in a care home twice monthly. The sessions are paced to people ability and the emphasis is more on breathing techniques and relaxation. In Highfield, I teach smaller groups of people (2 to 4) privately, and I am also available for one to one (£30 per session, assessment is free). Drop-in sessions are only available in the regular classes.

If a therapist's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the therapist to discuss the options available.
