About New Dawn Yoga

Welcoming yoga classes and workshops focusing on various aspects of yoga.


Hatha yoga 

Most yoga taught in the West is a form of Hatha Yoga. It will usually include some physical postures (asana) as well as breathing practices and relaxation. 

Whilst yoga works on the body, the real power of yoga is becoming a witness to the fluctuations of the mind.  Quite often it is our minds that cause us suffering whether it is a limiting belief about our physical ability or a busy mind that prevents us experiencing sufficient sleep or being present with our friends and family.  Yoga can help harness the mind so that you are in control of it, rather than it being in control of you.

If we can control the body, we can gain control of the breath, by the breath, we can control the mind. 

Classes take a progressive approach in that we will start with an accessible version and then add intensity to the pose so that you can choose to stay at whatever level is appropriate for your body at that time. 

Kundalini Yoga

I do not currently teach Kundalini Yoga due to the revelations around its founder - Yogi Bhajan.  I may return to it at some point in the future however the unveiling of his dishonesty and abuse has left me uncomfortable in sharing the practice.



I have been teaching Hatha Yoga since 2000 and Kundalini Yoga since 2010. I strongly believe the true power of yoga is not in performing asana, but in being present in the body and in observing the fluctuations of the mind and how yoga affects your mental state and energy levels.

I was first introduced to yoga as a child when I would join my mother in her bedroom to practice with the aid of Richard Hittleman's book (Yoga 28 day exercise plan) Sadly I was often sent away to allow my mother to practice in peace. As I grew older life got in the way but I returned to yoga at the age of 23, after being diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis, a condition my mother had also suffered and had successfully used her yoga practice to manage the pain and discomfort.

I am a fully qualified BWY (British Wheel of Yoga) tutor and teacher trainer. I also have additional training in Yoga Philosophy, Pranayama, Yoga Nidra and Yoga for Mental Health.  I draw on my many years of experience and slightly wicked sense of humour to create fun classes and workshops.  I have also trained in the 'Yoga for Health' protocol for those suffering with mild depression or anxiety.

In addition to the BWY training I have trained with Judith Lassiter in Restorative Yoga (Relax and Renew) which brings deep healing with the use of bolsters and props to give the body space to open and release in a physically supported environment.

I am qualified in a number of therapies including shamanic healing (for further information please go to and will always continue to see myself as a lifelong student of yoga.
