I first tried Yoga when I was in junior school.
I was only around 9 or 10 and it was offered as an after school club. My yoga journey properly began when I started Drama School in London, and my friend Ronny introduced me to a weekly yoga class above an activewear shop – I loved it! I still remember the teacher asking everyone to set their intention for the class. I carried on attending every Monday evening and then started to explore other styles that were offered in London, and met some amazing teachers along the way.
My love for a consistent practice grew and I ended up booking a retreat in Portugal. It was exactly what I needed.
We began each day with a walk from our accommodation to the pier overhanging the ocean and practiced vinyasa yoga as the sun was rising. We surfed and spent time at the beach during the day with some colourful Acaí bowls for breakfast, then finished our day with yin yoga on a deck in a beautiful public garden followed by lovely food sat around a big communal table – the vegetarian bbq was my favourite! (more about the retreat on my blog.)
My practice has been evolving throughout the years and a huge breakthrough for me came when a family member sadly passed. This transitioned my practice into a huge healer and break from trauma and grieving in my life which is what set me on the path of teacher training at The House of Yoga in Putney.
My biggest goal with teaching is to help anyone and everyone who comes to class have a momentary break from whatever is going on in their life. To re-connect with themselves and their bodies, practice mindful movement and be truly present – amazing things happen when we just BREATHE.
Yoga for me is a way of life.
Your practice is something that can always be constant and evolving in a busy and unpredictable life.
Being an Actor as well, it is so important for me that I can always come back to yoga. I can move and get back into the present moment or flow state on my mat rather than worrying about the past or what may happen in the future.
