I have always been an ocean lover and feel at my most peaceful and tranquil when I am near water. Just as we all are, pebbles are unique and individual and this is why all of my yoga classes are inclusive and open to all.
I first found yoga during a very difficult period in my life in 2009 and have never looked back! It has supported me at the very best and the very worst of times and although my practice has evolved and changed over time, the feeling I get when I am fully present in my body is like nothing else.
I have a passion for helping people, but more to help them help themselves. I am intrigued by the human mind and I love that I get to combine all these passions through my work, although it really doesn’t feel like work at times !
At YogaPebbles I aim to nurture mind, body and spirit through movement. Helping people develop their own way of finding what feels good in their body is vitally important to me as a teacher. Working with the somatic body through invitational yoga is where my heart lies.
I can help you find a shape or sequence that can work in your body , adapting the yoga to YOUR body not your body to the yoga ! All of my classes are gentle and include fluid movements which you can dial up or down depending on your energy levels. It is often said that the slowest movements in yoga, when practised with attention to the breath are the most beneficial.
As well as my regular classes, I also run Yoga for Seniors as part of a local Community Parish Council initiative in addition to offering 1-1 Trauma Informed yoga for those adults with lived experience or witness to physical or emotional traumatic events. Do get in touch to find out more, I would be honoured to support you.
