'Yoga truly is an experience its not just something you do. You feel it within your own energy field, and your relationship with yourself. The physical aspect is just a tiny fragment of its power. It really does change who you are as you bring yourself back to your own centre. My only aim as a teacher is to introduce people to themselves and have them be aware of their power and to cherish it and nourish themselves on every level. Yoga can often be emotionally raw as we let go of what holds us back. Working with others sympathetically, primarily with the breath and then body you really do see magic happen - its always an honour'
