Having danced since the age of three I became qualified as a Russian Ballet Teacher in 2003. One day I was teaching ballet at a studio where there were Ashtanga classes advertised. I thought that whilst I was there I’d “give it a go”. I fell in love with it and have been practicing ever since!

I completed my teacher training with David Swenson and have studied with some wonderful teachers – my first being Debbie Blunden. I am currently working with Eileen Gauthier and annually attend yoga retreat at Yogaplus,
Crete with Raddha and Pierre.

I have studied anatomy and physiology, that combined with my ballet training, gives me an interest in correct alignment in postures combining that with the breath and dristi.

In my classes, I like to explore postures enabling students to get more deeply into poses and also, most importantly, I just like to bring the joy of the practice and the wonder of being able to move and breathe.
