Public Yoga Classes - Friday @ 10am

In my 90 minute weekly classes I hope to remind students that the most effective and perceptive teacher in the room is their own body. I attune students towards awareness of the sensations associated with each asana or pranayama. I find this a more integrative method than staging a pose for students to copy. I like to think I can speak the language of sensation clearly, so classes become a simple, joyful and sensual exploration. I teach weekly classes at Home Studios and smaller, bespoke classes at The Shed.

In the power of giving birth I saw the sun in all its glory, I saw the fear in man's eyes at the earth shattering strength of woman.

Public Pregnancy Classes - Tuesdays @ 7.30pm

I have taught yoga to over five thousand women through their pregnancies. I believe Yoga is where the pregnant woman can find the strength and space to carry her baby healthfully. It’s where she finds the essential sense of calm for both herself and her baby and where she prepares her breath for the deepest physical, emotional, spiritual and sexual experience there is… human birth. Lest we forget, we are breathed into life.

I teach weekly classes at Home Studios as well as smaller, bespoke classes at The Shed.

Active Birth Workshops

Having taught over 800 couples over the past 12 years I would summarise the practice of Active Birth as the simple understanding that in labour when it feels good, it is good. In these workshops, I remind the expectant couples of the innate physical logic of a woman's body. I teach birth partners how to support the labouring woman through understanding the labouring environment - it's movements, breath and tone. Equipping them with touch techniques to help their partners to labour as healthfully, easefully and holistically as possible. At The Shed, I run much smaller sessions with a maxium of 5 couples.
