MichelleMy earliest memory of yoga was watching my mother during her home practice in the early 1970s, I was fascinated by the beautiful postures, their names and their associations with nature and animals.

I began my own journey over 30 years ago when I met my current teacher and attended classes with her in my hometown, Southend-on-Sea.  I was drawn to the dynamic flow of Ashtanga yoga and in 2013 I completed the 200 hour Teacher Training at Yoga Dharma, Southend.

Since then, I have been teaching classes across Essex; Ashtanga, Restorative yoga and Meditation, working with groups (adults and teenagers), and on a 1-2-1 basis, helping students to gain strength, mobility and confidence which they can take into their everyday lives. I believe yoga is an enormously powerful practice which has the potential to transform student’s lives in a positive way, the benefits are  immeasurable as it forms the pathway to a truly peaceful, happy and healthy life.

I have recently been researching and developing my interest in the transformational benefits of chanting and Kirtan which I hope to study further during the 500 hour teacher training in 2017.
