WHO AM I
Mother, Yoga Teacher, Mala Maker, Runner, Activist and Lover of Nature.
My practice has been a wellspring of inspiration from which I have managed to find a creative outlet that helps me overcome the challenges I am faced with due to having bipolar disorder. My practice has helped me to connect those around me and nature in a more significant way.
I am a 500 hour British wheel of yoga registered yoga teacher, offering regular classes in west London which include restorative, vinyasa and slow flow yoga & regular chakra workshops. My thirst for knowledge has kept me connected to my teacher Simon Low and he is a constant support and inspiration to me.
I practice meditation and asana but alos consider making malas as part of my practice. Not only does it calm my mind the gentle method and rhythm of knotting between the beads it balances my need to be active and present in the now.
HOW IT STARTED
Many moons ago I worked in the luxury jewellery sector, and during this time I fell in love with the stories and meaning we attach to our Jewellery.A decade later and I found a new path practicing Yoga and had an immediate thirst for knowledge which led me to undertake my first yoga teacher training. It makes sense with my jewellery background that I would become fascinated with mala beads I sawMy late mother was the spiritual one in our family. It wasn’t until she passed away that I picked up the mantle. I am so grateful for her influence. When my parents were traveling in India, they would always bring me back a mala.They started to be a comforting presence and one that represented my mother’s spiritual nature. I taught myself to make malas using various tutorials and quickly found that the making of them became a meditation in itself. Being able to connect to my creative side had been a source of immense joy to me.
