Lead Instructor | Owner
Hmmmm about me.... I set up Daily Bread Yoga in June 2017 having worked in a corporate environment for years and feeling totally unfulfilled. Poor mental and physical health brought me to yoga and I just haven't looked back!
Daily Bread Studio opened July 2018, driven by a desire to bring the concept of dedicated yoga studios out of the big cities and share just how powerful a mindful practice can be. Outside of yoga I am a qualified Crystal Coach and Spiritual Life Coach, I live an extremely blessed life with my husband and we are expecting our first child in March 2021.
I want to see people moving naturally, the way Their body was designed to move. This might not be exactly the way it looks in yoga books or on the internet but knowing and trusting your own individual self is so much more powerful, both on and off the mat.
I teach a flowing style, focusing on the journey and feeling rather than the ‘end pose’. In my mind yoga is about balance; part of becoming a whole person is being authentic, that means learning to love every part of you - even the less than perfect parts. We have become so used to not listening and trusting ourselves, yoga is the perfect antidote to our hectic lives.
Studio Manager | Yoga
Studio Manager at Daily Bread Yoga and successful South African singer songwriter and musician, Josie had a music career in South Africa for ten years. She took a break from music to travel and work in yachting which allowed her the opportunity to experience loads of different countries and cross the Atlantic Ocean by boat, which was a highlight. In 2019 she and her partner came to settled in the UK on a narrowboat, in order for Josie to pursue her love for music and Yoga, and have been making a new life for themselves ever since.
Yoga has always been part of Josie’s life, she found it as a teenager and has been practicing on and off since then. In 2017 she completed her 200- hour Yoga Teacher Training, which she absolutely loved, and so her fascination with anatomy began. The more she’s practised and been teaching the more Josie has enjoyed Yin yoga and is currently studying mindful Yin and Meditation course.
Favourite pose: A deep Pigeon pose or Sleeping Swan in Yin Yoga, this pose is an instant way to relieve physical and mental tension every time.

I’m married to the lovely Sara and have 2 fantastic boys Finn and Jesse who keep me very busy when I’m not at work. Outside of work my passions include sport (in particular football, cricket and darts – yes you did read that correctly…darts), watching live music and comedy, travelling, enjoying different cuisines (with fine wine of course) and I keep myself fit by running.
