Find your way back to rest

I am a yoga teacher, reflexologist, menstrual coach, and astrologer. These are my tools to help you on your journey within yoga. Yoga is so much more than touching one’s toes, yoga is a way of seeing the world and our place within it. By expanding our consciousness we can begin to find more peace, joy and contentment in the daily life. My practice focuses on gently re-energising the body, bringing balance to the nervous and endocrine system, and re-learning how to find deep rest.

Release, re-energise, renew

By connecting to your body, your breath, and your heart you will deepen your awareness and release physical, mental and emotional tensions to feel restored and renewed. This is yoga as you’ve never experienced: powerful, accessible and often completely effortless. Drawing on insights from my own journey through stress, burnout and loss, I teach research based practices to help you overcome life’s challenges and find the rest you truly need. I share practices which can help you:

  • Recover from stress and fatigue and learn how to prevent yourself from becoming ill

  • Support a healthy menstrual cycle

  • Begin to heal symptoms of anxiety or depression as you welcome feelings of safety, security and joy

  • Break free of negative thought patterns and fear by connecting with your deepest sense of well-being

  • Uncover a language of symbols and metaphor to awaken to yourself as a soulful being as well as a physical one

I teach classes, workshops and one-to-ones in Bristol, and also share workshops and retreats around the UK - I look forward to warmly welcoming you to practice, learn and grow with me.


Time to nurture and nourish...

Escape into nature’s beauty and give yourself time, space and permission for deep rest. My retreats are a chance to nourish yourself with delicious food, luxurious accommodation and plenty of soothing yoga. From retreats focusing on complete relaxation, to retreats combining more energetic forms of practice with restorative techniques, you will leave feeling nurtured, nourished and rested.
