From a young age I danced, which led to a professional dance career travelling the world, achieving my dreams in my very early twenties. A shift in personal circumstances led me back to the UK where I fell into a corporate world taking up a senior management role where I remained for over ten years.
During that time, my mind yearned for a place to disconnect from the stresses of living in such a yang world and the high intensity stresses of my work environment. Having always been a gym bunny, and enjoyed Pilates throughout my dance career and with my background I have always been fascinated by how incredible the human body is. I was always drawn to yoga, knowing the benefits for mind body and soul, but just couldn’t quite find the perfect place and time. As with most things in life, it came to me, and found me at the right time.
Finally, in Manchester, I had found a place to reconnect to my body on a much deeper level than I could ever have anticipated. I hadn’t connected to my body in such a freeing, liberating, creative, fun and playful way since my dancing days. I particularly loved vinyasa flow, and Jivamukti, and not long after yin and restorative began to seep into my practice. I was hooked, and found myself craving more and more, always with a thirst for knowledge, my mind wanted to know more about Yoga and it’s fascinating history, until finally after my teacher convincing me I was ready I signed up to a teacher training, here in Fuerteventura with Andrea Everingham at Azulfit.
What a location, the whole experienced was truly first class and incredible. It wasn’t long, and didn’t take very much before my teaching days came back to me like they were yesterday and became more important to me than my regional manager role. I made the bold move to quit corporate, and move into teaching yoga full time. It was an easy decision for me when a position at Azulfit came up. Having experienced first hand the home Azulfit create, including their beliefs, ethics and professionalism, I instantly knew this was for me.
Luckily, they felt I fit too. Arriving back at Azulfit, I felt like I had come home. Now I get to do what I love daily, sharing the beautiful gift of reconnecting to ourselves, with wonderful souls in an incredible magnetic island, and our home in Corralejo, Lotus Retreat.
