Breath, Senses, Mind & Heart – a Continuum of Being, Instrument of the Soul
Endless exploration with a deep love and reverence to these ancient teachings; all the things known and unknown, Mother Nature, our innate nature and all about this Life, falling into a wholeness and plenitude.
Areas of my studies include the practices and wisdom from Advaita Vedanta, Tantra & Ayurveda.
I am over 1500 hrs trained and certified in Traditional Hatha (Satyananda and Krishnamacharya tradition), Tantra /Kundalini, Chakra, Kriya Yoga & Mantra/, Yoga Sutras, Yin & Restorative Yoga, Pranayama, Pre & Postnatal Yoga, Yoga Nidra & Meditation.
I am co-running Happy Om Studio in centre of Norwich since 2019.
I had, and still have, the privilege to learn and study for about 11 years now with Swami Atma Gyanam Saraswati from The Yoga Tree, Swami Nihchalananda and his team from Mandala Ashram, Katherine Girling & Everett Newell from Zuna Yoga, Rod Stryker from Para Yoga and many more.
Lastly I have completed 300 hours of Vedic studies of Yoga, Ayurveda, Mantra and Meditation with Dr. David Frawley, which entitles me to a Yoga & Ayurveda Wellness Consultant.
Current Svadhyaya (self-study):
Kriya Yoga & Chakra Dharana -one year long mentorship
Nada Yoga - Yoga of Sound - exploring Mantra, Raga and Kirtan
All of this study and my personal inner work has created a holistic approach to what I share…
At the core of my offerings lies an intention. So these teachings, which have been passed on and through me, will inspire your heart and mind to descend into the exploration of knowing ourselves on deeper levels of our being.
You will be invited to welcome yourself into these practices as you are and start from this very place…
To slow down from the busyness of day-to-day life. To quieten our mind and to re-connect. To remember our innate nature which rests in effortless awareness.
For intensifying and, most importantly, sustaining this freedom and creative field through movement, awareness, breath,
subtle body practices & self-inquiry.
Whether it is healing, purifying, transforming, inspiring or tapping into the unknown I look forward to sharing with you.
I believe with reverence and commitment of yourself through these practices Yoga reveals itself, allows us to receive its spark of insight, clarity and richness to this sacred life.
Weaving these threads together has been, and will continue to be, my life’s purpose.
When I am not practising, teaching or studying yoga, you will most likely find me walking in the woods, spending time with my favourite people and my cat Madhu (sweetness in Sanskrit), looking after my indoor jungle (I have almost 100 plants!), gardening, playing harmonium, reading, taking photographs, knitting, crocheting and being with
All That Is.

At the core of your being, beyond mind, beyond body, lies your true nature.
A sparkle of light, a sparkle of energy, totally peaceful, at one with the world.
Playful. Innocent. Gentle. Generous. Loving. Wise.
