I have been teaching yoga now for a little over 3 years, after completing my life changing training in Costa Rica in Vinyasa Yoga November 2016. Since then I have trained in over 200 further hours of vinyasa, yin and dynamic yoga with world class, renowned teachers such as Norman Blair and Godfrey Devereux. I have been teaching in various studios around Surrey and London including Frame, the Sky Garden, in various corporate companies including London Stock Exchange group and of course private clients.
How yoga helps me
Yoga has been so incredibly beneficial for me in many different ways: physically, mentally, emotionally, energetically. As a result of this, it is now my mission to share these benefits with as many people as I can.
If you are new to yoga then please don’t let anything put you off! I started as someone who was SO tight and inflexible, SO far away from being able to touch my toes. I had no clue what half the positions were in class and found downward facing dog excruciating. To be completely honest I really, really struggled with yoga and couldn’t feel the benefits of it AT ALL!!
The key to yoga = Practice Practice Practice
But, as with anything in life, after much practice, patience and persistence I’ve come to experience just how amazing the beautiful practice of yoga is for our bodies but more importantly our minds.
My yoga practice allows me to come back to my breath, the simple inhale and exhale. In that breath I am able to come back to the present moment, and therefore forget about anything in the past or the future. And it is in this present moment I am able to come back to my core, my essence. I am able to feel my body on such a deep level. This cultivation of presence therefore allows me to feel grounded and more connected.
If you would like to come and practice with me, please see my schedule below:

“If I was writing a letter to my younger 20 something self I would say ‘practice yoga with Gracie now’ and this is why……I haven’t yet met a teacher as good as Grace, every city should have a Grace. I am not alone in thinking this as her classes are full of all ages and experience levels.” Sam, 53.
