About Equanimity Yoga

Equanimity Yoga offers a holistic approach to Yoga inspired by my own yoga journey which saw the practice transform me and my life. I went from being a wrung-out stress-head who was constantly unwell to someone who is (mostly!) welcoming of life’s adventures and challenges in their varied and insightful forms.

Personal experience has taught me that yoga can have untold benefits. When you practice regularly for a long time yoga can subtly bring about positive change in all areas of your life. And yoga isn’t about touching your toes. The 'stretchy' stuff is a tiny part of what yoga is. At its core yoga is about calming the mind and allowing you to appreciate that the whole universe is intimately interconnected.

My journey

My yoga journey began around 10 years ago. I began attending occasional classes and workshops, then I stepped into an Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga class and I immediately knew I'd discovered the yoga that inspired and resonated with me.

After a few years I attended into my first Mysore style class – and my world changed! The Mysore practice forced me to confront myself on my mat. I began unpeeling the layers of who I was, and who I thought I was, delving deeper and deeper into the spiritual and philosophical side yoga. I discovered that once you start to really study yoga the subject grows and grows. Yoga isn't something you do for an hour once a week, it is a philosophy and a lifestyle.

My initial teacher training was with the Devon School of Yoga, I enrolled without any intention of teaching yoga, I just had a huge thirst for a deeper understanding of yoga in its many and varied forms.

Teaching

I teach in Exeter and organise occasional workshops and retreats. My classes encourage strength, wellbeing, health, happiness and promote evenness, or equanimity, of mind. I teach the Ashtanga Vinyasa practice that changed my life as well as Hatha Yoga, Yoni Shakti (women's yoga), Yin Yoga and Yoga Nidra and work with children with Autism. I have trained in Yoni Shakti (Womb Yoga) with Uma Dinsmore-Tuli and in Yoga for Children with Autism with the Special Yoga Foundation.

I have a small home studio in Exeter, providing an intimate class setting. I also teach at the Ashtanga Yoga Workshop in Exeter and run Corporate Yoga sessions at places of work.
