Many happy coincidences brought me to Edinburgh to stay in 2011.
In 2000 - I was encouraged to go to Los Angeles and study with Bikram Choudhury, by my phenomenal Godmother, friend and Mentor, Gilly Adkins. My life had been fairly chaotic and destructive. My work as a registered nurse was restricted due to an accident where I broke my spine. I had also been raped and had not recovered well.
I trained and healed, and then qualified to teach Bikram Yoga in Spring 2001. I had countless brilliant adventures and taught around the world for 10+ years; predominantly in Kauai, Chicago, Ibiza, London and New Zealand.
I have studied, taught and practiced with some of the greatest teachers of this series in the world. I have been guided to incredible places and people, and have healed from further severe physical accidents and trauma along the way. There is no doubt that this practice caught me, and brought me back, every time. It has taught me to ride the waves, and it brought me to Scotland. I opened our school in February 2012, with just me teaching at first. Now we have a family of 12 teachers (still growing) and I could not be prouder.
My passion and faith in this series and its ability to transform has never wavered. It grows with every class and every student. I am very grateful.
