17 years ago, I discovered how exercise helped with a calmer and more optimistic approach to life and I trained as fitness instructor. It was whilst I was a dedicated Kung-Fu student that I first came across Yoga and became hooked!
After many years of Yoga practice I became a Yoga Teacher and Psychologist. In 2003 I opened Bahia Yoga, which has now expanded into Nottingham’s leading Yoga School. With an expert team of 10 people, we run accredited Yoga Teacher Training Courses and daily Yoga and Meditation classes at our beautiful Yoga Studio.
Seeing someone drop away their mental, emotional and physical stresses as they leave a Yoga class is pretty humbling. The subtle and notable changes in a person’s physique, mind, overall approach to life is beyond words as they discover the real meaning of Yoga.

My love of fitness really came about while I was living in Slovakia. Wanting to stay healthy but with limited access to gyms and classes, I took up running and created my own at-home workouts. Upon my return to the UK, I qualified as a personal trainer.
After identifying a severe lack of post-natal exercise classes on the fitness scene, I took it upon myself to fill this gap in the market, and set up Mummies & Babies Post-Natal Fitness. Empowering and educating women on the benefits of safe and effective exercise is so rewarding, and the classes were an instant hit. My fitness repertoire soon extended to Pilates; which I discovered could not only relieve my own lower back pain, but was fantastic for post-natal recovery. At the request of my clients, I have gone onto develop the Little Black Dress Workout, launch two pre/post-natal fitness DVD, lead workshops and develop my own community of pre/post-natal fitness specialists.
