As a teacher, being able to share my knowledge, experiences & spirit with others is a gift that I am always grateful for. I want my clients to feel supported and free to explore their body, mind and spirit in a space free from judgement and stress. I teach from my heart and always come wearing a smile and a burst of positive energy.
My first yoga class was not a graceful experience. I felt lost, uncoordinated and self-conscious. It took another two or so years before I returned and never would I have expected I'd be here today writing my yoga teacher bio!
While yoga started as a physical activity for me, it wasn’t long before the holistic benefits of this ancient practice started to seep into every aspect of my life. Yoga challenges and balances me – physically, mentally and emotionally. With a penchant for many of life’s pleasures and the ability to burn the candle at both ends, yoga is my trusty equilibrium. Yoga encourages me to embrace and honour my physical & energetic body, as well as the mental and emotional clutter of my life. I’m learning (always learning) to let go and just be.
While I love teaching the flow and dance of a Vinyasa practice I understand too well how this can cause more harm than good when you're not connected and aligned with our own body so including functional, intelligent movement is important when I teach, as is a splash of fun and laughter. I also use experiences from everyday life and combine it with the philosophy of yoga, presenting it in a way that anyone can easily relate to.
