I teach yoga and meditation, work as a holistic life coach, and also write - generally about wellbeing and mental health. I have over 23 years of yoga, meditation and mindfulness experience (I started young, at 12) and strive to bring my personal experience of the transformative and healing effects of these practices to others.
My yoga approach is body positive; I want students to feel empowered to find what works best for them and strive for function over aesthetics. I hold a core belief that yoga is for everyone, and much of my work involves communities and charities, including The Refugee Council and Crisis. (FYI, if you're a charity I would love to hear from you!) More than anything I believe the real yoga happens off the mat - who really gives a sh*t if you can put your foot behind your head!?
In coaching my aim is to enable clients to better connect with themselves (and those around them), access their core priorities, let go of negative patterns and motivate themselves for any changes, or difficulties, that may lie ahead.
As a journalist, I frequently write and comment on yoga, body image, social media, mental health, and wellbeing, and have been featured in Women's Health, Vogue, The Guardian, iD, and Dazed Beauty.
I am also Head of Yoga & Wellbeing at Raw Press, run regular panel talks for Soho House and host a monthly self-help book club, Books To Change Your Life.
Before all this I spent 10 years working as a fashion and arts journalist, and still enjoy a high heel now and then.

I support the CHOOSE LIFE Mat project
