A LITTLE MORE ABOUT ME

I live in the heart of St Davids, Pembrokshire, and have been practising and studying Yoga for more than 19 years. I'm a fully qualified teacher having completed the Sadhana Mala Vinyoga Teacher Training Courses, run by Dave Charlton and Ranju Roy. I was a student of Yvonne Summons for more than 10 years and I am so grateful for the guidance all my teachers have given me. 

As a member of the British Wheel of Yoga (BWY), the governing body for Yoga in the UK, I am fully insured.


I only ever have a maximum of 10 students in my classes so that I can give plenty of 1:1 support, adjust students accordingly and offer suitable modifications.
