Having danced since I was 4 years old, i’ve always used my physical body as a way to express my emotions. In 1998 I trained to be an actress and have been working in that field ever since (you may see me in the odd commercial here & there, or perhaps you spotted me in ‘Mamma Mia’ in London’s West End?) But there are a lot of ups & downs in the Entertainment business, rejection is something you have to become hardened to, so for years I have been searching for a a way to find balance, mental wellbeing & happiness - and it came right back to my physical body.
During my Drama school training, I started teaching myself Yoga from a book (Youtube wasn't around in those days....gulp!) as a way to find some calm & stillness in my life, & I continued to dance. Eventually I started to see some incredible benefits, both mentally & physically & when I find something I like, I feel compelled to share it, whether it be the value of Yoga, my favourite series on Netflix or the latest Gluten-Free, Sugar-Free, Vegan desert i've baked, so teaching became a natural path for me. I’d already been teaching dance alongside my acting career so I took myself to LA to train to teach Zumba & then to India, where I gained my 200hr Yoga TTC, which was a life-changing experience. Suddenly everything felt right.
I've also spent years on a quest to maintain a healthy immune system (after countless antibiotics as a child) and so furthered my studies into nutrition and wellbeing. Now I have the pleasure of sharing my experiences and teachings with you. So my mission is to continue to share what I learn, & help each one of you find your BALANCE & HAPPINESS in life and make each moment of each day count!
