My knowledge of the body from my work in dance along with my yoga practice has made me an authentic and original yoga instructor. My classes are based around three cores; fluidity, strength, and kindness. Whether teaching Vinyasa flow, Slow flow or Restorative Yoga my focus is on breath, alignment and connection to the self.

I started practicing yoga from the age of 16 alongside my dance training. At 22 I travelled to India and further fell in love with yoga, finding the blissful combination of Asana and breath. The other part of my life is music, I am both a musician and singer, which are combined to bring unique music to my classes.

I started my own yoga studio, KIND, in 2015 which ran for a year at a fixed location. Since then KIND has evolved to spreading its wings across London and beyond, working with great companies and studios, holding my own retreats and workshops as well as working with private clients. I continue a weekly East London Tuesday class which has been running for 4.5 years.

This journey allowed me to develop a strong client-base and become a confident teacher who understands the need for a professional and reliable attitude towards yoga.
