My Approach to Teacher Training

Finding Inspiration in Every Turn

I've curated and led Teacher Training programmes for over 12 years. Having guided over 500 trainees and teachers, I weave together a rich tapestry of experience and expertise in many disciplines.
With a strong focus on embodiment and leaning into practice to support our modern day lives, I invite teachers to both teach and live from this place; to demonstrate the effects as well as the techniques.

My Mission and Vision

I believe in my bones, that teaching is a privilage. My mission is to train teachers to feel inspired and who are inspiring. Teachers who leave training with the ability to offer classes that can transform - not just because they are skilled in biomechanics or have brilliant lesson plans (although this is also the case) - but because these practices have changed their lives for the better.  There is something different about how they teach when this happens. Through a clear grasp of embodying these practices, teachers can role model the powerful affects as well as the techniques.

I want there to be teachers in the world who guide with a depth of presence that reflects an understanding into themselves, of others and this whole gig of being human.  The capacity to engage with the student fully, being able to see them as a whole person, and reflect back their innate goodness. 

When I teach one and they go on to teach many, I sense the ripples of change going beyond anything I can ever imagine. This offers much hope for our world.

More on my teaching style and background About my Teaching I’m a seasoned facilitator, teacher and trainer, with a knack for meeting people right where they are, with deep insight and a compassionate heart. I've been teaching classes for 20 years, and curating and leading trainings, workshops and retreats for 12 of those years. I'm passionate about creating transformational experiences in casual learning settings - be it in a studio, classroom, on retreat or in the workplace - that help people reconnect to and reclaim their joy and purpose, so they can rediscover the vitality in their lives and relationships. My style is friendly and down to earth, accessible to people from all walks of life, and always with a sense of lightness and humour (diving deep and laughter are not mutually exclusive!) Below is for those who are interested in credentials and a study path - I'm a Mindfulness Teacher, studying with Bangor University. I also trained with Tara Brach and Jack Kornfield as a Mindfulness Mentor - going on to work for them at Cloud Sangha. I continue to attend regular silent retreats to deepen my own practice. With a keen interest in working with trauma and addiction, I've studied with Ralf Marzen, Dr Gabor Mate and Richard Schwartz to better understand how yoga and meditation can support this aspect of our human experience. I'm a Somatics Movement and Senior Yoga Teacher/Trainer in multi-disciplines (Hatha, Flow, Yin, Nidra and Restorative). I like to weave these practices together to help regulate the nervous system - healing stress, addiction and early trauma – to bring greater balance and sense of calm our body and mind. I believe only then, can we see clearly and show up fully. I love to write, and have featured in OM Magazine, Amrita Magazine and Yoga Magazine, as well as being the resident Wellbeing columnist for Circus Magazine. Drawing on over 20yrs of teaching, I’m on a personal mission to share the benefits of delving into these practices in community. By offering these experiences, the space for healing connection opens up to empower others - not to change themselves, but to be fully seen in all their glory. I believe when we change the way we see ourselves and each other, we can affect some sort of change or perspective that makes our world better.
