“I have attended a retreat with Hayley, as well as online yoga and Qi Gong workshops. She is a talented, experienced and compassionate teacher. Her classes are easy to follow, enjoyable and rich in knowledge and content. No matter how tired and stiff I start her class, I always leave feeling, grounded, centred, light and open.  Thank you for inspiring me.”

The yoga practice that I share is grounded in the principles of the work of Vanda Scaravelli. In this approach, we have three constant companions on whom we place our focus and attention – gravity, the breath and the spine.

Workshops & Retreats

Details of live in person classes and workshops will be announced soon. In the meantime we can move together via Zoom. Please email me to discuss.

This way of working is suitable for anyone and provides an intelligent framework to take into any other practice. Whilst undoing tension and habitual conditioning in the body, we find not only an increased feeling of integration and wholeness in the physical body, it also allows us to release held emotional tension and strengthens our sense of connection.

Classes can be dynamic, flowing, still and more internal, working with classical asanas, creative movement, pranayama and meditation. It depends on what I am currently exploring in my own practice, the needs of the group, the weather – many factors that can determine the form of a lesson. They are also inspired by my background in dance and other movement disciplines such as Feldenkrais, Gyrokinesis, Continuum, Body Mind Centering, Gaga and Qi Gong.

I also find great fulfilment in working individually and in the retreat environment, where there is the opportunity to go deeper. To find out more about how to work with me and for up and coming workshops or events contact me directly here.

​My introduction to this Yoga began at the Natural Bodies Centre in Brighton, UK. It was here that I completed a 3 year teacher training facilitated by Gary Carter. I was fortunate during this time to be introduced to inspiring teachers such as Diane Long, Sophie Hoare, Liz Warrington, Elizabeth Pauncz, Monica Voss and John Stirk (with whom I have studied consistently for over 20 years). More recently I have also been working with Sandra Sabatini and Michal Havkin on intensive retreats in Italy.

“After having practiced Iyengar Yoga for many years I felt that I needed a new approach to yoga. My body needed something else, to allow more space and softness inside, for my spirit to grow and expand. During 12 days of intensive practice with Hayley in Goa, I discovered a whole new way of expressing myself through yoga, and a new approach to the asanas.

I immediately felt an enormous amount of trust with Hayley, she has the capacity to be sensitive and at the same time so strong. Her ability to see who you are and guide you deeper into your own body is absolutely extraordinary and she very lovingly helped my body to unfold like a beautiful flower.”
