I am a fully qualified Fitness and Holistic Instructor with over 20 years' experience. I taught at Le Sport Spa Hotel in St Lucia for several years before moving to the UK where I am a freelance Instructor, specialising in the Holistic areas. Le Sport is where I met my yoga mentor, Sara Ivanhoe, from Crunch Studios in Los Angeles, and studied Yoga with her during 1992. Sara is an extremely popular and respected Yoga master who appears regularly on Fit TV in the USA and has numerous videos to her credit. She recently appeared on CNN news to promote her latest training video "On The Ball Yoga".
I went on to study at the Iyengar Yoga Institute in San Francisco, obtaining the Master Yoga Diploma; going on to Polestar Education in 2002 to obtain a Diploma to teach Yogalates.
In the past few years I have developed my knowledge further by studying with the British Wheel of Yoga where I qualified in 2003. In 2005 I went on to study with the BSY and qualified as a Professional Relaxation Therapist, and in February 2006 I joined the Independent Yoga Network in the UK as a Registered Yoga Teacher.
In 2009 I went on to become a member of REPS (Register of Exercise Professionals) as a Grade 3 Yoga teacher.
I have a wide repertoire of holistic classes including Tai-Chi, Hatha Yoga, Yoga and Meditation, Yogatone, Yogalates (a combination of Yoga and Pilates) Ashtanga Yoga, Stress Management and Relaxation Therapy.
In addition to my holistic skills, I have always had a passion for dance, including jazz, tap, salsa, and was at one time a professional dancer. I now teach dance classes in the UK and I have also performed and choreographed many musical shows at locations throughout the USA and Caribbean.
In my role as a freelance Yoga and Fitness Instructor I work with many of the UK's Fitness Clubs, including David Lloyd, Le Roche, Castle Royle, and Next Generation Clubs.
Every year I go back to Le Sport Spa Hotel in St Lucia to run a Yoga Master Class, taking a group of my clients from the UK down to St Lucia. This way they get to sample the delights of Le Sport's unique body holiday concept whilst combining it with Yoga in the sunshine.
