About Me

Yoga with Me

I’ve been practising yoga for nearly three decades and now want to show others that yoga can be for everybody, no matter your shape, size, flexibility or how late in life you come to it. 

Yoga for You

Are you in need of time and space for yourself in which to relax and release? Fed up with midlife aches and pains? Want to soothe your nervous system, rebalance your stress hormones and feel more at ease in your body and mind? 

Yoga Classes in Bristol

Have you hit midlife and would like a new way to look after yourself? Would like to try a class in Stoke Bishop or Westbury-on-Trym? I provide accessible yoga in some of Bristol’s most beautiful venues. All are welcoming spaces with easy parking. 

Training and Interests

I completed a BWY foundation course in 2002 and then two decades later my 300 hour teacher training in 2022 (both under my long-standing yoga teacher, Tara Fraser.) In 2023 I completed a 3rd Age Woman Menopause Transition Certification from Burrell Education.

Frequently Asked Questions

Please contact me with any other queries.

At Westbury Wildlife Park all equipment –  including mats, blocks, bolsters, blankets and eyebags – is provided. At Stoke Lodge I ask you to bring a mat if you have one, otherwise I can provide you with one. I will bring any other equipment required. 

Any comfortable clothing that allows you to move freely is great. You might need an extra layer for relaxation at the end when your body temperature will drop. 

Absolutely not! All abilities are welcome and you work at your own level. My classes and gentle and accessible to all.
