Hello! My name is Steph and I am a Kundalini Yoga and Shakti Dance instructor and a mother, a dancer, performer and singer based in SW England. I also perform devotional singing ('kirtan') from the Hindu and Sikh traditions.
I teach a regular weekly class in totnes Devon and also online. I offer private classes as well.
I studied theatre at Dartington College of Arts where I trained in performance art, mime, contemporary dance, martial arts and Iyengar yoga which was such a great foundation for me.
I came across Kundalini a few years back during a period of acute transformation / breakdown! I now use my practice to feed my soul, and to build resilience in my body, my mind and my spirit in a way that I never was able to before. For me it is literally a lifeline. This AMAZING modality served my need for internal processing work but also gave me a level of fitness, strength, energy and joy.
These practices help me manage my mental and emotional health. But perhaps most importantly yoga (and dance) serve the longing I had in my soul to reconnect with Infinite source – our true identity. These are devotional practices, guided by a dedication to finding the infinite within the finite realm and this guides all my teaching.
