Helen has been practicing yoga for 15 years and has studied with many different teachers & styles (Hatha, Ashtanga, Iyenger, Anusara). Having trained in alignment-based Hatha Yoga at TriYoga in London she has gone onto complete teacher trainings in the uplifting, flowing style of Anusara Yoga. As an Anusara Inspired teacher she is passionate about sharing yoga with everybody, yoga to benefit all, weaving the Anusara Universal Principles of Alignment & themes throughout her classes. She sees yoga as a tool for expansion and freedom in every aspect of life.
Since Oct 2009 she has been on the road teaching in India, Thailand, Bali, Nepal, Sri Lanka & Europe. She sees her own self practice as a way to deepen her knowledge & exploration of yoga both on & off the mat. Teaching gives her opportunity to share her knowledge whilst continually learning & growing from her students.
Teaching women & children in Nepal who had been rescued from sex trafficking was a great reminder of the power of Yoga & its therapeutic benefits. No matter what we have suffered there is a deep desire inside each one of us to shine our light & move forward.
Helen teaches from the heart in a playful, joyful & fun way focusing on helping everyone express their own beauty & using Partner work to help students support one another in order to reach their true potential & push each others boundaries.
Helen is both Yoga Alliance’ Certified and British Wheel of Yoga, as well as Anusara Inspired.
Additionally she is practicing Dynamic Thai Massage, Osteothai & Planetarium Singing Bowl Therapy after completing over 550 hours of massage training both in Asia & Europe. Discovering Thai Massage opened up a whole new world full of Loving Kindness Compassion, Joy, Freedom & Equanimity. Now Thai Massage, Osteothai are are fully integrated into daily life, sharing a practice that is so sacred & healing for the receiver & the practitioner.
Forever Learning, Forever Grateful, Forever Inspired, Forever True. With love to all my teachers, friends & family.
