I have been practicing yoga and meditation for over 14 years. Having trained in Zen yoga, my classes embody the principles of uniting energy, alignment and presence and I place emphasis on connection to the breath.
In my personal journey I have noticed how the practice of yoga and meditation has brought me a deep sense of peace. My daily yoga practice helps me to establish an inner emotional harmony when life can become quite challenging. I have noticed how my health, energy and strength of mind blossoms through daily commitment. Yoga helps to empower us and reconnects us with the sacredness and simple moments of life.
Classes aim to encourage you to connect with your breath, feel your body and move out of your mind. I will guide you through physical yoga postures (asana), pranayama (breath work) and a short meditation, sound meditation or yoga nidra.
We will honour the seasons at various points in the year and work to open and strengthen the meridians and organs associated with the seasons. My inspiration and sharing comes from all that i have embodied and learned along my own journey which i will offer to you.
My intention is always to encourage you to listen to the inner wisdom of your body, mind and heart in the moment. Everybody is welcome in my classes – my oldest student has been 98yrs old! 🙂
Spontaneous Yoga and Hang drum Journey
These sessions are run together with another practitioner and booked for events and festivals. I am a musician. I play an instrument called the Hang drum. It has an incredibly unique instrument, that has an ethereal sound and other worldly quality.
The hang drum takes the listener on a special journey that can only be experienced.
I will play live hang drum while you are guided to forget your understanding of yoga. You will be supported with some basic elements of yoga, but the aim is for you to Release yourself from the mechanics of yoga and follow more deeply your body’s needs in the moment.
Can you allow yourself allow yourself to flow into deeper connection with your feelings, your moving body and your breath? Allowing the sound vibrations to transport you there.
Let go of your inhibitions and free yourself deeper into yourself. It’s a truely magical experience. Please get in touch to find out more about these offerings.

I recently had a yoga session with Lisa-Marie and I highly recommend doing some yoga classes with her! She is a kind, caring and a well organised yoga teacher. She maintained fluidity throughout the class, gave clear and concise instructions with subtlety and calm. After the class I felt as though I had really worked my core muscles, felt very open, energised and well relaxed. I highly recommend Lisa-Marie’s Tuesday lunchtime yoga class at ‘The Arc Centre’ which is a nice open space so plenty of room to stretch and practice.
Give her a try, you won’t regret it!”
