I began teaching yoga in Lanark, my hometown. My first classes were for adults in full-time care with multiple disabilities. After my time struggling with my body, I felt that one of my gifts was the way I could adapt poses for everyone.
When I moved north to Dundee I began teaching community classes in a few gyms around the city and thought I was really busy with three people in my class. This inspired me to open a dedicated space, something that Dundee didn't have. While looking for small properties, I stumbled upon an old church which was to be demolished and turned into flats. My then partner and I took on a huge project to turn it into an amazing space for yoga and Heart Space Yoga & Bodyworks was born. I welcomed people with disabilities to my classes and began a programme of free classes for children, teenagers and families with additional support needs; the community grew and Heart Space became my teaching base.
Now I teach all over the world while managing the studio in Dundee and I am delighted to have ten home-grown teachers alongside me who started their yoga journey with us about seven years ago. Dundee is my home and Heart Space will continue to be where I do the work I am passionate about.
