What makes your class so f’cking awesome?
I love creating a space for prenatal and postnatal mums to help them focus on themselves and connect to all the changes taking place in their bodies. My classes are super inclusive, nurturing, lighthearted and fun. Expect strength, relaxation, breath work, deeper connections with your baby and birth prep / recovery
What was your journey to becoming an instructor? How the hell did you get here?
The work hard play hard culture that came with working in an advertising agency lead me to a regular yoga practice. I was ducking out of drinking after work every night in favour of yoga and it very soon became an integral part of my life. I trained to be a yoga teacher with Yogacampus in London 8 years ago and specialised in pre and postnatal yoga over 5 years ago and haven't looked back! I get to work with so many interesting people from all walks of life and I'm proud to feel part of making people feel calmer, stronger, happier and more relaxed.
Who’s your fitness hero? Why?
It's got to be Serena Williams. Total girl crush on her
What is your signature move / style?
I love Ardha Chandrasana (half moon pose) There's so much going on in the pose - opening of hips, hamstrings and shoulders and strengh through the glutes. I also modify this pose for pregnancy with the use of a wall which is so liberating especially to the mums-to-be in their third trimesters - it's a thing of beauty to watch! A common mistake made in this posture is locking into the supporting knee meaning the muscles aren't doing their job and the ligaments behind the knee are working overtime. A little micro-bend of the knee does the trick though and fires up the glutes and hamstrings a treat!
What's your favourite way to feel good fitness-wise and life wise?
Daily movement, connecting to nature, being kind and surrounding myself with positive people
What’s the best piece of advice you’ve been given?
