There's much more to life than the daily grind.


In a long career in IT of almost twenty years, I worked for two of the UK’s largest employers in both the private and public sector.

I understand the desire to drive performance in the workplace. I also deeply value the need for self care. I get both sides of the argument. 


I’ve personally experienced this with varying degrees of success. But I failed at getting the balance right. There was a time where it felt like I couldn’t have one without the other. Performing really well at work and as a result my health taking some kind of hit, or being really well and my performance taking a nosedive.


I learnt the hard way, suffering from both burn out and chronic ill health.


I was doing too much. I really wasn’t getting the balance right.


But it is possible.


These extreme occurrences are difficult to manage from both the employer and employee's perspective. I was fortunate that I was developing a yoga and wellbeing practice that allowed me to take a more mindful approach to my recovery.

Recognising the value of employees’ wellbeing and increasing their perception of wellbeing requires a culture change. In creating the right environment, you will foster a workforce that is better engaged and more productive.


As a yogi from a corporate background with real life experience, I can offer your organisation a unique insight into the benefits of lifestyle changes that will bring greater balance to your workforce.

Think of Yoga as a practical set of tools to cope with stress, anxiety and tension. Movement makes you feel good in your body, breathing practices help you to relax, and meditation is like defragging the hard drive of your mind! Yoga connects mind, body & spirit like no other practice.

All our longer workshops combine coaching with yoga practices, tools and techniques. These are a fun addition and really help to break down barriers amongst teams. Yoga is a great leveller, and anyone can do it!

We make yoga accessible for everyone. Your level of flexibility, age and shape are irrelevant.

We need the teachings of yoga now more than ever before. Living stressful lives with far too many demands on our time, it is a great way to un plug, switch off and recharge.
