“If you can teach from the heart, the yoga comes naturally.”
Teaching yoga is just as much about making a connection with another person as it is the asanas. So if you love yoga, I know you can teach it since that is how it all came about for me. I have been teaching yoga for over 18 years and it all started simply because I wanted to help others feel the way yoga makes me feel… good! A good teacher understands that it is okay if you can’t do the perfect headstand, balance or twist (aka be human), because yoga is not about how well you can do a headstand — it’s about making other people feel good about themselves. Hope to see you on the mat!
“The first thing we ask of our students is to make themselves well.”
Most people go to work, end up stressed, and have to go to yoga to feel better. I get paid to not only make other people feel better, but feel better myself — every single day. I have been teaching for over 20 years and still feel just as excited and enthusiastic about teaching my classes as the day I started. In fact, I love it so much that my main passion now is to inspire new generations of people from all walks of life to become great teachers who love their yoga, and love teaching others to love yoga too.
“You don’t just do Remedial Yoga; you feel it.”
What a journey I’ve been on, and blessed to be a part of this amazing business helping people transform their lives and their careers. Having spent 25 years in the corporate world, I know how fantastic it is to be doing something you love. I was a full-time working mum but started to teach yoga and loved every minute of it. I’ve have now been teaching for 10 years and took the privileged step to qualify in training and assessment. Today, I still love teaching yoga, but also really enjoy training wonderful people so they can start a career or change careers to teach Remedial Yoga. Seeing our students grow into confident, mindful, beautiful teachers is so fulfilling to me.

“Trust in the yoga — it’s perfect.”
Having given up the 9 to 5 rat-race, I am proud to say that I am now fully dedicated to teaching yoga and training others to do the same. Yoga is a lifelong journey, but it helps to get the right training and advice from the start. As a graduate of COTY myself, I love what remedial yoga can do for people and enjoy sharing it with student teachers and helping them improve their own health through this therapeutic, down-to-earth yoga style.

“My happiest days are the days I teach”
Leaving the corporate world and training to become a yoga teacher at COTY was one of the most significant events in my life. Teaching and practising remedial yoga has changed the way that I live my life, and there is no greater joy than being able to support and share my experiences with all the graduates and students of COTY. I love talking about yoga and I will always be there to help others achieve their health and happiness goals.
