I am an enthusiastic and committed therapist with over 20 years of experience, and am dedicated to practicing the highest quality of body work. Yoga has always been an important aspect of my training; I studied Iyengar Yoga with Joan White in Philadelphia whilst also attending classes at the Ohashi Institute in New York. In 2005 I completed my 200 hour Yoga Alliance teacher training; the focus of this training was the dynamic Ashtanga yoga. I then took further study with The Yoga Campus and specialised in Yoga for pregnancy and birth.
I continue with my own practice of Yoga with teachers who inspire me. I am currently studying a post graduate diploma in Shiatsu for pregnancy and birth with Suzanne Yates of the Well Mother in Bristol.
