I am a fully qualified Yoga and Meditation teacher and Holistic Therapist. Ten years of living in London and a hectic job in the fashion industry left me feeling burnt out and unfulfilled. To combat the stress I was experiencing I was inspired to take a completely different direction, all down to the life-changing practice of yoga.
Since my early twenties I have experimented with different styles of yoga, but it wasn’t until 2013, that I truly discovered just how transformational yoga can be. My flatmate at the time, Tammy, was a newly qualified Bikram Yoga teacher and she encouraged me to try it as a way of coping with the unhappiness I was feeling. I was instantly hooked, and I began practising as often as I could. Yoga became my therapy, it helped me through a difficult period and it kept me sane!
Fast forward a couple of years - I decided to move back to my hometown of Edinburgh. To be near my family, to start my life over, retrain and embark on a very different career path. In August 2015 I travelled to Malta to complete my 200 hour FitYoga Teacher Training course. And upon my return I began training with The Scottish Massage Schools in Swedish Massage. The last three years have been about building up my holistic toolkit, qualifying as a reiki master and adding many different types of holistic treatments to my portfolio. I've never looked back. Earlier this year I completed my Meditation Tuition diploma with Gateway Training School and I am delighted to share this wonderful practise which others. In December 2018 I fulfilled a life long dream and travelled to Goa, India and successfully completed a 60 hour Yin Yoga Teacher Training course with Sampoorna Yoga School.
I always wanted to make a real, positive contribution to peoples' lives, doing something I love and am passionate about - I'm very happy to say I'm doing just that!
