I have been practicing yoga for almost 10 years and teaching since 2012. For me, yoga is more than just a physical practice, it is completely embedded into the fabric of who I am and I am very grateful to have this beautiful practice in my life.
My yoga journey began with Hatha yoga where I discovered the deep connection of breath and body & when I moved to Vancouver I discovered my dearest yoga discipline - Vinyasa yoga.
I fell in love with the graceful dance of breath and movement and I was completely hooked! I soon got a job at one of the local yoga studios and practiced all the time. I would quite often take a class before and after my shift on the front desk and I was able to explore many types of yoga and practice with a huge range of talented teachers at different studios all over the city - it was amazing and a special time that really shaped my yoga path.
In 2012 I took my 200hr Teacher Training with YYoga, it was a wonderfully comprehensive and tangible training that provided me with all of the tools I needed to teach safe, thoughtful and intelligently sequenced vinyasa classes. I moved home to Scotland soon after and began teaching in Edinburgh. In 2014 I was honored to become an ambassador for lululemon who kept me stocked up with amazing yoga gear and took me on some amazing adventures, thank you always lululemon fam!
Over the years I have been inspired and learned from many amazing teachers. I would like to honor the following teachers as they truly enhanced my practice & my understanding of yoga whilst I lived in Vancouver ; Sjannie McInnes, Clara Roberts-Oss, Carolyn Budgell, Kristen Campbell, Anila Lacroix, Brant Forrester, Alex Mazerolle, Suzanne Faith Slocum Gori, Ryan Leier, Megan Currie & Reno.
Also the beautiful teachers I have had the pleasure of studying with and learning from since including; Claire Missingham, Dulce Aguilar, Jamie Clarke, Jambo Throng, Elena Brower, Judy Cameron, Ateeka, Demelza Feltham, Evelyn Hurtado, Nadine Watton - Thank you!
Finally, and most importantly, thank you to all of my students for showing up, practicing and keeping me so inspired. It is for you guys that I continue to learn and grow so I can teach to the best of my ability. Without you I would not be able to do what I love, thank you always. Hx
