A Few Words
get to know
I am a certified Hatha, Ashtanga (220HR), Fierce Grace (250Hr) & Yin (50HR) teacher and am currently doing my 300HR Teacher training with Awakening Yoga Academy.
I have been working at Hot Yoga Belfast since the beginning and I absolutely love my job. I have always had a no BS approach to yoga alongside a full inclusivity policy.
Yoga should be enjoyed by anyone and everyone. I offer modifications throughout all of my classes so you can have the best class available to you, and your body’s needs, every day.
what to expect
First and foremost – fun.
I put my personality into each class I teach and never take anything too seriously. I am always myself in the hope that you too can relax and be yourself.
Working through full body sequences with a little bit of core thrown in for good measure. Every class is tailored to the room, working alongside new students and regulars offering chances to go deeper for those who have a seasoned practice. I curate personalised playlists for each sequence to keep the classes light with a natural pace throughout.
