Gymnastics and Acrobatics Teacher
I grew up in the gymnastics and acrobatics world. A competitive gymnast since I was 7yo, I participated and competed in Women’s Artistic Gymnastics, and in Acrobatic Gymnastics. I was taught over the years by numerous amazing senior and high performance coaches in several different clubs. I received my first British Gymnastics coaching qualification in 2000. I have gone on to receive further qualifications in teaching Women’s Artistic Gymnastics, General Gymnastics, and Acrobatic Gymnastics, as well as judging qualifications in Women’s Artistic and Acrobatic Gymnastics. I have taught general and squad/competition gymnastics in several different clubs. I currently teach freelance and for Tekne Gymnastics.
Handstand and Contortion Teacher
I have performed professionally as a contortionist and handbalancer at events all around the world since 2005. As well as performing then I love to pass on my knowledge by teaching others the beauty of handstands and of contortion/flexibility. I began training these arts in the UK in the days before social media and adult classes the UK in them existed, my expertise arises not only from today’s wealth of available information, but also from years of personal training and research, intense anatomy study (I also have a degree in physiotherapy), and a lot of conversations with other experts in the field. Over the last 15 years I have been lucky enough to live and train alongside several world class handbalancers and contortionists who I have also learnt a lot from in an exchange of knowledge. I currently teach on a freelance basis.
Yoga came into my life in 2009 and I am truly thankful for the journey and healing it has given me so far. I have been fortunate to have learnt from some absolutely amazing teachers in London, and from all around the world, to whom I give much thanks.
In 2017 I travelled to India and received my 200hr teaching qualification from Sampoorna Yoga. Today I can be found teaching online and workshops around the UK to all levels and abilities.
Crystals and minerals are absolutely fascinating pretty beauties of Mother Earth. I have a slight obsession with them aesthetically, and a belief in their healing energies and ability to reduce stresses. I have studied Crystal Healing with Philip Permutt, and I hope to continue my journey and learning into energy healing over the next few years.
