I have been teaching for 20 years (B.W.Y dip) and studying in the UK and India. My special interests are in Kashmir Shaivism, Tantra and Siddha yoga (Shakti Path). I encourage my students to realize the importance of sadhana (personal practice). I am qualified in ayurvedic and holistic massage (M.T.I) and I am also an artist.

I teach Hatha Yoga, based on the concept of ShivaShakti, with reference to Ayurveda and Tantra (the spiritual aspect of this branch).
The class consists of a serie of asanas with emphasis on awareness and breathing, taught in a creative way. The benefits are increased suppleness, balanced energy and spiritual awareness.(Read more details about the teaching in the "public classes" section)

Group Classes


Enjoy practicing asanas (postures) while discovering the subtle map of the body and its energy centres (chakras). Specific breathing techniques taught during each session. What makes these classes special is that they encourage practicing with eyes closed in order to develop a meditative awareness and tune in to your own wisdom. The practice becomes an exciting field of discovery on a physical and subtle level. A unique and enjoyable approach suitable for all levels - but do tell the teacher in advance if you suffer from a specific condition, illness or if you are pregnant.

Holistic Massage & Ayurvedic advice + yoga background

I trained in the mid-80's with Velta Snikere-Wilson and a few years later qualified with the British Wheel of Yoga. I gained further knowledge of Yoga, Ayurveda & Tantra through the great teaching of Robert Svoboda, whose lectures I have attended for 10 years; and also from Acharya Shivanand Jee for learning certain hindu practices. For 20 years I have been teaching people of all ages and ability including weekly classes at Wormwood Scrubs Prison for 4 years. My work with inmates serving life sentences has enriched my teaching greatly and made me aware of the positive application of yoga in the life of an individual.

In 1992 I trained as a holistic massage therapist (M.T.I dipl.) and in 2005 in Ayurvedic massage (Abhyanga) with Atreya Smith from the European Institute of Vedic Studies. In 1995 I developed a great interest in Ayurveda and since then I have studied and attended regular lectures by Dr Vasant Lad and Dr Robert Svoboda and completed in 1996 a certificate of ayurvedic studies from the Ayurvedic Institute of New Mexico. This ancient art of living has influenced my work in both Yoga and massage and made me realize that healing and positive changes can only take place when the individual is aligned with the law of Nature. I have since developed a great interest in Tantra, Jyotish and Alchemy, and continue a on-going spiritual development with my teachers in India
