Deep Flow Yoga
Like many, I first found yoga during a difficult period of my life. Gradually, the practices I discovered through the guidance of my teachers helped me find the space in my experience to begin to navigate these challenges. Since then, yoga continues to lead me on a profound journey of healing, discovery and acceptance.
I have a professional background in academic research, with a PhD in Neuroscience. My work fuels an ever-present wonder at the beautiful complexity of our physical form and the way it shapes our experience. My spiritual enquiries and scientific training weave together in my practice and teaching, giving contrasting frames of reference and complimentary ways to explore what it means to be human.
I am drawn to the yogic lineages of non-dual Shiva Tantra, emphasising, as they do, the sacredness inherent in all aspects of experience. Leaning into the wisdom of these teachings, I have come to see yoga as a process of gradually unravelling unhelpful self-story, of re-remembering our true nature. My motivation to teach comes from a deep desire to keep the wisdom of these teachings alive so that others may benefit from their transformational power.
I have been lucky to have worked with many incredible teachers. I have trained with Padma Nair in Kerala, where I was able deep dive into the poetry of yogic philosophy and Hindu culture, with Sarah Harlow and Sam Burkey at Yogasara in Bristol, whose inspirational teaching has ignited profound growth and with Christopher Gladwell, whose vast knowledge and experience has taken my practice to new depths.
