About Me

‘This is more than yoga, this is a way of life’

‘You’re too northern to be a yoga teacher’ were some of the first words I heard after announcing my desire to teacher yoga.

I’d been practicing Ashtanga for nearly a decade at the time, dedicated to my practice, my teacher and my personal development. I studied hard, trained harder and still, my dialect would evidently be the thing to hold me back.

I was nineteen years old when I first started practicing yoga. I found the transition between where I was in life and where I wanted to be challenging. I hated change and the stress of it physically manifested in my body. My breath became shallow and I was tired all the time.

Western medicine was not what I needed, though many tried to push their pills on me, I turned East for relief. Yoga gave me not only a space to breathe but also a deeper connection to myself. It gave me roots that anchored me to each present moment. Change was no longer challenging because I’d found a deeper level within myself that allowed stillness, security and surrender.

The practice of yoga changed my life and this was the reason I wanted to share it with others. Through my northern determination and desire to prove people wrong, in 2015 I birthed Northern Yogi, a digital space to share all that changed my life; from how I practice to how I eat, travel, dress and live. This is more than a yoga practice; this is a way of life.

In 2016 I took my first 200hr teacher training with Yoga London. Since then I’ve had the honour of teaching Ashtanga and Vinyasa in my northern tone!
