A Short Introduction
Hello, I am Cal. I am a highly experienced, 500 hour certified yoga teacher. I teach power vinyasa flow and more restorative yin yoga, and am qualified to teach pre and post natal yoga. I teach because quite simply I love yoga. I have learnt so much and got so much joy I want to spread the word. To this end, I also teach advanced anatomy and yin yoga trainings throughout London and the UK.
I came to yoga about 25 years ago, and became hooked by the magical ingredients of breath, flow and movement and the profound and lasting affects it has on both mind and body.
I completed my 200 hours teacher training with Hot Power Yoga in London and completed my 500 hours certification with Paul & Suzee Grilley, specialising in anatomy, yin yoga and meditation. As well as teaching private and public classes I deliver and teach anatomy and yin trainings in the UK, which are YAR registered.
Passionate and interested in body and mind I am also a qualified Yoga Life Coach, Reiki practitioner, and am a qualified and practicing Acupuncturist having graduated from the reputable College of Integrated Chinese Medicine, affiliated with Kingston University. I am also a casall clothing ambassador, their strapline is, appropriately, Forever Better.

I’ve been visiting Cal for around 6 months for a longstanding condition which has been causing me severe pain every month. I’d had acupuncture a few times before but never have felt so at ease as I do with Cal as she gives such a warm welcome and really takes the time to explain the treatment. I feel like I am in safe and caring hands and there has been a marked reduction in the pain and related symptoms.
I came to Acupuncture with Cal for constant and severe shoulder pain. After a few sessions with the lovely Cal the pain had disappeared and I felt a lighter, happier version of myself. Acupuncture doesn’t just work on the physical level; it works on the mental and emotional level; I felt a better version of myself and make sure I come for monthly check ups.
I had my first acupuncture sessions with Cal and the surge of energy was amazing. Her explanations opened up a new understanding of how my body works, my symptoms disappeared and I feel a better version of myself! I am now recommending Cal to all my friends.
Cal has been treating me for chronic anxiety. Since seeing her I have noticed that I have become bolder and braver and more at ease. This has started to impact my life for the better. Every time I to to acupuncture I feel incredibly relaxed and energized simultaneously. Additionally treatment has regulated my period which is an added bonus!
I have been coming to acupuncture with Cal for 6 months. She has dealt with my condition with real empathy and I am both relieved and amazed that my symptoms have significantly dissipated. More, I have a new sense of freedom and wellbeing. I do not hesitate in recommending her.
I would highly recommend Cal to anyone looking for acupuncture treatment. Although I had done acupuncture before, I was a little apprehensive but Cal immediately put me at ease. Her knowledge on the topic is inspiring and she always takes the time to explain why she is focusing on certain points of the body. She’s also very patient in answering the many questions I tend to ask.
For me, what sets Cal apart from others, is her nature and who she is as a person. She has a very caring and calming demeanor, and puts me at ease. Every time I have a session with Cal, I leave feeling energised and healthier.
