I grew up in Zimbabwe, with a great passion for nature and the outdoors. At 18 I moved to London and fell in love with the diversity, different cultures, and openness of London and its people. I worked in the Events Industry for several years which was intense, demanding, and very fast-paced. I attended a Yoga class during a particularly busy work period and was able to find stillness and a place to really see inside myself. At this point, I realized that for me Yoga would be a life - long journey of learning and practicing.
I believe that trying to live Yoga and its key beliefs every day lightens my heart and soul. I traveled to India in 2016 to explore and learn more about Yoga and its origin, completing my 200 hours of Yoga Teacher Training in Rishikesh, India. The experience gave me an in-depth understanding of the theory and practice of Yoga and proved only to enrich my love for it.
Since then I have been teaching Yoga full time as well as welcoming a little human into the world. First In Swansea at two different Studios/Centres and now having moved back home to Zimbabwe I am based in Harare in a variety of different spaces. I absolutely love working with people, to empower them through the applications of Yoga.
I am currently doing my IAYT Certified Yoga Therapy Training which uses a Biopsychosocial Spiritual approach to wellbeing. Yoga therapy is the process of empowering individuals to progress toward improved health & wellbeing through the application of the teachings & practices of Yoga. This is a path I feel very drawn and excited by as it aligns with my personal and life values.
I teach a range of different classes to a large variety of people because I truly believe that yoga can be for everyBODY! The movement of Yoga moves stagnant energy/ tension and creates space in the body to allow fresh energy to come through. Yoga Asana (movement) works deep within parts of the body that have emotions or stuck energy that other forms of exercise can not do. This release of energy brings balance to the central nervous system. Yes, you may get stronger or possibly lose weight, but the purpose goes beyond the physical. It is a healing practice that meets your body where it is at..
Beginners Yoga which is focused on understanding your own body and breath, whilst establishing good strength and mobility to live comfortably in your daily life.
Chair Yoga provides a safe space to come and work gently towards improving balance and proprioception, increasing flexibility and strength in the muscles and ligaments and extending joint mobility.
Rise & Shine Vinyasa. The aim of this class is to challenge you to move & BREATHE in a different way. Encouraging the body and mind to shift tension by powering through different postures lead by the breath.You can expect both strengthening and active stretching drills in this class. All levels welcome. Must be able to comfortably get up and down from the floor.
Restorative Yoga. In times of chronic stress this deeply nourishing practice couldn't be more important. Restorative Yoga is the gift of doing nothing. Nothing but deep relaxation to soothe, comfort & replenish the body & mind. A full 90 minutes to unwind and ease out of the heightened state of the sympathetic nervous system into the parasympathetic.
With the use of guided breathwork, meditations and deeply relaxing propped up Restorative positions I will hold space for you to release mental, emotional and physical tension, so the entire body & being can remember what it feels like to fully relax.
Private 1-2-1 Yoga. At home or in the studio this is a tailor made session to suit you and your needs in relation to the application and practices of Yoga.
I wholeheartedly believe in the utter joy and balance that yoga can bring to each and every person. I wish to share that joy and help others find their own balance and learn all that is within themselves.
