About Pure Joga

I am the “Jo” in the name “Joga”  and my passion is all things Yoga.  When I say all things, I mean everything from Aladdin pants to Pranayama to Yoga Sutras to Meditation to Asana to Zen music accompanied by the fragrance of incense… It’s lit!

‘Pure’ is a powerful word.  Yoga is an internal process where you are purifying the energy channels (nadis) within you so the vital energy force (prana) can move freely, taking you to the higher state of self-realisation. My Yoga teachers have consistently commented on how pure my practice and teachings are. I teach from within, with an authentic Yogi style.

After having a 10-year career in the corporate world, I made the shift to a more holistic life. No more typing away on a laptop for 10 hours a day or squeezing onto an already fully packed train like a sardine. Instead I am now living (or shall I say floating) in the present moment in London, taking every day as it comes and continuing to develop, learn, grow and, most importantly, teach and spread this amazing practice called Yoga.

My Yoga Alliance accredited qualification achieved in 2017 is traditional Hatha Yoga and I integrate all 8 limbs of Yoga in each Pure Joga lesson. So rest assured, there will be some relaxation time after each practice, leaving you feeling fully restored and at peace.

As I continued to learn and develop as both a teacher and a student I completed a Meditation Teacher Training in the Yoga Darshana Tradition of Patanjali in London in early 2018.

Shortly after this training I traveled to Asia where I was blessed to experience the beautiful culture and spirituality of Bali and during this time I found out that I was 8 weeks pregnant.

After returning to the UK and teaching my local Hatha Yoga classes I decided to dive deeper into my pregnancy by immersing myself in an extensive pregnancy yoga teacher course which covered not only pregnancy yoga, but yoga to help with birth preparation, postnatal yoga and mum & baby yoga. This gave me insight to my own practice but also prepared me for a beautiful birth to a wonderful baby girl. My labour was an incredible experience were my breath was my guide from the start of an induced labour until she was in my arms enjoying our first skin to skin experience.

During the first year with my daughter I continued to teach my evening Hatha classes but also taught locally with her at Yoga studios and outside in the park Postnatal Yoga and Mother and Baby Yoga.

This website is to share with you my Yoga passion and to encourage you to find balance on your own unique journey of mind, body and soul. The ultimate goal of this path is for you to awaken your true self and live consciously.  The website will give details of  my teaching schedules and styles of Yoga, upcoming retreats, information about one-to-one sessions and corporate Yoga. It will include a blog, recording my yoga journey and monthly meditations.

Lastly, Yoga should come with a warning… Your life will change. Yoga has been known to cause Health and Happiness!
