Shimmy is gentle and kind, encouraging and nurturing, teaching from the heart. Her approach to teaching is similar to her approach in life: both grounded and light, dedicated, mindful and aware. In her spare time she enjoys both spinning classes, and sitting on the sofa with a good bar of chocolate.

Shimmy’s yoga journey brought her to complete a BWY Foundation course with Tara Fraser at Yoga Junction, and thanks to an auspicious alignment of stars and developments in life, followed a Astanga Vinyasa Teacher Training (with Julie Martin and Melanie Cooper, RTY 500) at Brahmani Yoga, India in 2009.

Shimmy is also a qualified Pre and Postnatal (RYT100) and Restorative Yoga teacher (Jodi Boone, Brahmani Yoga), and recently completed a 100 Hour Anusara Yoga Immersion with Bridget Woods Kramer in London.
