I am a yoga teacher and personal trainer - but I'm guessing you already knew that since you're here!
I am also an artist / painter. Maybe you didn't know that one!
I have a profound passion for painting and I have a studio in Glasgow's East End.
Growing up, I harboured a great love for martial arts. Choosing karate as my discipline from the age of 7, I fought competitively as a child and acquired my brown belt by the time I was 13 years old.
I stepped away from my beloved hobby at the age of 15 due to debilitating knee injuries, I spent the next decade attempting to re-build my body, eventually settling on a low-impact fitness regime consisting of weight-lifting and the healing practice of yoga.
Today, my injuries have thankfully dwindled drastically and I returned to martial arts at the tender age of 30 in 2019 and have fallen in love with the martial arts world all over again and continue to train as much as possible.
Originally hailing from Ayrshire, I currently live and teach in Glasgow, Scotland.
I teach yoga and fitness classes for the likes of Glasgow University and other studios and fitness venues in and around the city. I also see 121 clients at my, or their, home.
I qualified in 2019 as an Advanced 500 hour Yoga Teacher with The Seasonal Yoga Academy in Glasgow, adding an additional 300 hours of teacher training to my existing 200 from 2016.
I also hold certifications as an 85 hour Pregnancy / Pre-Post Natal Yoga Teacher, Kids Yoga, Aerial Yoga, Seasonal Yin Yoga, Level 2 Gym Instructor/Level 3 Personal Trainer, Bootcamp and Suspended Bodyweight Training (TRX).
In 2020 I trained with Ricky Hatton's coaching team to become an Advanced Level Hatton Boxing For Fitness Coach, advancing to the final Elite Level Coaching in 2023.
So, that's a little about me, for now.
Thank you for stopping by to read about me. I like to keep things personable and fun with a none-too-serious approach to my life and my teaching. It's also nice to know who your teacher / coach is at the core.
If you've been with me thus far, I thank you. If you're just joining me, it's wonderful to have you here.
Before you leave, I want you to remember something. You're on this website for a reason. Great things never came from comfort zones and there is great joy in discovery. New connections. New possibilities.
Do you want to take a chance and see what could happen for you? Your health is your wealth!
Life is but a journey, at the end of the day. And, I don't know about you, but I want mines to be adventurous, passionate, weird and wonderful, filled with good vibrations, new doors opening, fresh starts, wonderful people and endless possibilities.
Adventure may scare you, but monotony very well may kill you.
Dare to be different.
Peace, Rock n' Roll and Namaste to all,
