I am a second generation Pakistani woman born and bred in England so culturally, Yoga is not a typical path to follow for someone with my background but when I embarked on a spiritual path I experienced some transformational and life-changing events, one of which was energy Yoga, i.e; Yoga just ‘came’ to me, like a memory, a remembrance…
Previously, I had very little experience of yoga, perhaps attending a handful of classes. The energy yoga really brought me into my body and out of my mind. It was so blissful! It has brought me to this point in my life in a new life, a departure from my old career of 20+ years as a psychiatric nurse to feeling a pull to teach yoga.
I practice Bio-Energy meditation (shaking) which I have done since 2007. I practice daily and I visit the Ratu Bagus ashram in Bali annually to deepen my practice. I ran a shaking meditation group for some years in the UK. Some years back, yoga started to come through in my meditations. That's the only way I can describe it.
For me yoga is a mind-body-soul-environment all-inclusive experience which resonates with me. With yoga I can feel freedom and space in my body and a clearing and calming of my mind. I feel that it is a gift to teach yoga and my attitude is that I will always be learning is life-long. In my previous career as a Nurse, I taught and mentored many students and staff over the years and I found that there is always something to learn regardless of how much experience you have.
My roots are in Hatha yoga from training with Radiant Light Yoga School in Belgium. My own daily yoga practice and my teaching incorporates Hatha asanas alongside my intuition.
I work intuitively with yoga students both on a one-to-one basis and in groups (online and in-person). With my one-to-one yoga sessions, I offer a bespoke, thoughtfully planned practice with mindfulness and for the individual and what s/he needs.
