ABOUT

My first yoga class was in 2001, a way to help me sleep and manage symptoms of anxiety. After years of various explorations with practice, I started teaching yoga in 2010. Since then i´ve taught hundreds of classes in the UK and Norway, leading workshops, curating events and creating and running long term projects including the art + yoga project at KODE (the art museums of Bergen) and the Lick Yoga project, a pay what you can afford yoga initative for the Brighton community.

 

My current offerings include:

* Weekly class in Brighton
* Weekly yoga videos
* Self Care sessions in Brighton + Norway
* Themed workshops in the UK + Norway
* Brighton Retreats

I´m also open to requests so get in touch via the form below if you have requests!

APPROACH

I tend to pull from a plethora of movement and stillness studies, and am inspired by so many things that make it into the sessions. In my classes there will probably be Every class is different, but for “all levels”...in fact, i encourage “eating” the rules around levels and remember that everybody can “do” yoga. I´m all for reminding everyone that it´s “your yoga”. You define it as opposed to me barking things to do. Instead, it´s an offering, 75 minutes where i offer sequencing queues and suggestions of alternatives if you´d rather try it a different way, but also (always) space for you to do you. You always have the space to listen to what you need and take things wherever you like in that time, and hopefully, at the end of it, you´re feeling a little more connected to yourself by practicing (what i think is a very “advanced practice”!) listening to yourself and what you need a little better.

 
 

SPACES

I´m interested in how we can utilise spaces in ways that aren´t the norm. Which is probably why i´ve taught regular classes in a kindergarden, various art and culture museums, a chicken shop and a fro yo factory. I enjoy taking yoga to places that aren´t the “norm”, whatever “norm” is(!), and also challenging ideas about what yoga is or isn´t, holding space for people to create their own experience and hopefully have a good time.
