MY STORY

My journey has taken me around the world and home again.

Always an enthusiastic sportswoman, I earned my provincial colours for Netball in my youth. After 14 years working in ICT I found myself gravitating to more person-centric work and developed a keen interest in psychology, which I later went on to study.

While in the UK in the early 2000’s I started practising yoga more sincerely... and the adventure truly began. 


Initially attracted by the physical benefits, my love of yoga soon developed into a deeper appreciation of the mind-body-spirit connection. I discovered that by harnessing the power of breath, in combination with movement, one can achieve a greater level of engagement and increase the opportunity

to positively affect change in the moment.

This revelation was too important to keep to myself and so HanHan was born. I enrolled in yoga teacher training while in Singapore and 3 years later completed my RYT500, registered with the Yoga Alliance.

Over the years I have continued to expand my offering and now include personal training and holistic wellbeing. I'm passionate about women’s health and believe that increasing strength and mobility are the most overlooked areas of improvement women can use to combat muscle atrophy, bone density loss and other effects of ageing.

Not excluding the male of the species, I am also experienced at working with athletes keen to harness the power of conscious breathing to "stay in the zone", as well as those just wanting to improve their flexibility and touch their toes again. 

Whatever your goal, I will work with you in a holistic, collaborative way to help you rediscover

the body, mind connection. Just get in touch!
