I am a yoga teacher, lover of movement, a devotee of the natural world and a passionate creative. Originally from South Africa I have had a calling and dedicated practice in yogic forms for the past 18 years. I believe in the power of movement as medicine. I believe in the wisdom of nature and the healing truth present in the world around us. I believe that through the connection to our bodies and natural environment, deep healing and authenticity can emerge, and it is with this approach that I seek to share my love with the world. My teaching and practice is inspired at the intersection where movement, nature and discernment meet and draw from a wide range of traditions inspired by travels and studies in India, North and South America.
I have been drinking medicine since 2004, and have intensive experience within the framework of classical dietas. I have been more fully immersed in in-depth training since October 2017 and am currently living in Iquitos Peru studying in the Shipibo tradition.
I encourage the practice of movement to become a playground for us to understand how our creativity and life force can be directly embodied through specific physical movements and intentional invocations of spirit into our busy and sometimes city-orientated lifestyles. I emphasise acknowledging all aspects of the human experience into my teaching as I believe illness, suffering and disconnection are tools to bring us closer to our creative well, through engaging with dedicated mindful movement, mantra, breath and music.
