About me

GL  webpic 2014

I've been practicing yoga for 17 years and started teaching in 2009. I'm registered with the Independant Yoga Network (IYN) and fully insured. I have continued to take further training since my basic 200 hour yoga teacher training.

Thai Yoga Massage therapist (with Amy Ku Redler, Metta College, 2010) - I call my style of massage 'Metta Massage'

Teach Meditation, (with Swami Saradananda, Flying Mountain, 2012)

Healing Space Yoga (with Jude Murray, Healing Space Training, 2013)

Myofascial Connections (with Gary Carter, Natural Bodies, 2016)

Mindfulness Teacher Training (with NHS Lanarkshire/Forth Vally, 2017)  

I volunteer to help co-faciliate Mindful Living Courses run by NHS Forth Valley, in Stirling and Falkirk as well as incorporating mindfulness into my yoga classes.  

I share mindful movement, mindfulness meditation and yoga with my students with empathy, sensitivity and enthusiasm.  

I have personally experienced the benefit of meditation and yoga, myofascial release and massage, whether as part of my everyday life or as recovery from periods of feeling unwell and being fatigued. 

I love walking, cycling, swimming and kayaking, and a wee bit of running. I have undertaked several endurance events, raising funds for different charities whenever I can. Without my yoga to support me, I would never be able to contemplate such things. Open swimming is my main outdoor passion now, and I can be found in cold water wherever and whenever possible, summer and winter. Usually without the wetsuit!  

Although I love being active and feel well at the moment, past periods of ill health and being low in mood have helped me understand what it feels like to be distressed, feel depressed, be physically uncomfortable and generally lack confidence. Not being at ease with oneself is tough. So, if you're not sure you will manage the poses, or don't feel well, or are in discomfort, or feel a bit glum about things, please don't think all is lost. Try a bit of mindfulness, or yoga and/or meditation with me and see what happens...

"I started Yoga some years ago after recovering from an injury and got so much benefit from my practice. It is great to be able to introduce Yoga to other people and help them develop and benefit from it, too"
