My yoga journey began in earnest around 10 years ago when a friend dragged me along to Bikram Yoga Manchester for my very first class.

I was in pretty good shape at the time as I had completed three triathlons in the previous 12 months but I was hooked after that first class.

In 2012 I decided to deepen my practice and understanding further by attending Bikram teacher training in Los Angeles.

I have spent the past six years teaching in several studios in the UK and have on occasion taught in the US.

My yoga journey continues and evolves, and I am very excited to be joining Heidi and the team at Hot Lotus, to be part of what I am sure will become a vibrant and wonderful community.
