Meditation & Mindfulness monthly class: movement, relaxation, mindfulness and meditation in Bishopstoke, Eastleigh (near Southampton). Book here.
Quieten the mind to feel more peaceful, present and positive.
Life can be stressful – pulling you this way and that.
The pressures of modern-day living and the constant demands on your time and attention might leave you feeling overwhelmed, drained, tired and unable to switch off and relax.
Your body is tense and tired, your mind won’t switch off and you feel at the mercy of the rollercoaster of your emotions.
I want you to know there IS another way.
The potent practice of meditation and mindfulness: it helps us to awaken to a different way of living.
It’s a path to slowing down, connecting to how we feel and, most importantly, learning to allow ourselves to feel our feelings and to accept all parts of ourselves.
As we practise meditation and mindfulness we become LESS reactive, less judgemental, less fretful and we become MORE accepting, resilient, present, peaceful, positive and joyful.
And it feels particularly soul-nourishing to meditate in a group.
As we all drop into a peaceful, calm, grounded space together, you will feel the energy in the room shifting and feel held by your fellow meditators. It’s a very different experience to meditating on your own.

Thousands of scientific studies have shown that a regular meditation practice:
- Reduces stress
- Reduces worry and anxiety
- Promotes emotional health
- Improves concentration so you feel more focused
- Enhances self-awareness – helps you understand yourself better so you can be the best version of you (what I call the “radiant soul”)
- Improves sleep
- Reconnects you to life
- Increases acceptance e.g. of pain, discomfort, health issues … and yourself and other people
My meditation journey
I used to feel stressed and anxious all the time. I lacked confidence and joy seemed a distant prospect. I was at the mercy of emotional ups and downs.
While the physical practice of yoga helped me a lot, it’s learning to meditate that has enabled me to truly transform how I relate to myself, others and the world.
By learning to quieten the mind and still my body it’s truly shifted my perspective and has reawakened the radiant soul within me.
This is what meditation has done for me and what it can do for YOU:
- live in tune with your natural rhythms
- master your emotions
- develop harmony in yourself and your relationships
- enhance your personal and spiritual development
I’d love to walk by your side as we meditate together to enable you to awaken your radiant soul so you can embrace life with joy.
About your teacher

I use my first-hand experience of how yoga can relieve stress and anxiety to enable those of us who often feel anxious and overwhelmed how to release emotional tension and harness the power of the breath and the mind to connect to inner strength, stillness and joy and find peace amidst the demands of everyday life.
I am known for creating a calming, welcoming and supportive atmosphere in my classes, course and workshops, and I share the teachings of yoga in a grounded way for modern life.
