I discovered Yoga in my twenties when performing with Random Dance Company and I quickly found it to be the most useful resource in my career as a dancer. After one summer holiday during which I had delved deeper into different styles of Yoga I remember Wayne McGregor asking, “What have you been doing? You look great!” And the answer was simple, “Yoga”. You can imagine my delight when I later moved to Belgium to be rehearsal director for Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui and I discovered that Yoga was a core part of the training schedule, as was the case for most dance companies in Belgium.

In the past, the feedback that I have received from dancers taking my classes is that Yoga has provided a stronger sense of self, both physically and mentally, which is not shaken by the demanding profession of dance nor the highs and lows of auditions or heavy touring schedules.
