“I get so much joy from contributing to our community and love to do my bit, having the opportunity to share my passion for yoga is a dream come true.”

I became interested in yoga in 1997 whilst living in the UK. Although I was young, I was suffering from sciatica and back pain and noticed my confidence plummeting as my fitness declined. I started with a yoga video, practising each morning until I hurt my back. Clearly, I needed a teacher! My doctor and acupuncturist were very encouraging of this. I found my first teacher at the local hall in the city of Bath and started my path with Ashtanga yoga.

In 2015, a culmination of events made me question my whole world. Always one to follow my heart, I felt called through my daily practice to pursue teaching, and I felt no doubt this path was mine to travel, so I completed a 200h Hatha Vinyasa Teacher Training in Sydney.

I decided to join the Yoga Synergy team for many reasons, not least because Simon and Bianca are true yogis with a long committed history of experience. The way they diligently share the intelligent style of yoga they have created together, their ethics and integrity really resonate with me.
