Yoga, in any form, is a tool for deepening our relationship to self. Over the last ten years I have practiced a mutitude of styles of yoga ranging from yin to acroyoga to hatha and ashtanga, in many different countries, from a myriad of incredible and inspiring teachers. I've also had the gift of receiving some teachings of more earth based indigenous wisdom. Through exposure to these diverse methods for accessing and remembering the truth of existence, i am continually developing and refining a multifaceted viewpoint of life.
What began as a purely phisical practice became something much more when I found myself on the other side of the world for the fist time in my life with all my belongings lost by the airlines. I found the last available bed in the New Zealand town I was in and it just so happened to be right beside a yoga studio. In this moment I realized that no matter where I went, who I was with, or what I had with me, yoga provided a feeling of "home" for me. As I traveled deeper down the path of yoga I found Anusara yoga which started to link the things I was learning physically on the mat into the other moments of life. The pull to learn more of this practice eventually led me to India where the spiritual teachings of the practice were shared with me, taking me all the way to spend three years studying Vendanta with a traditional teacher in Bali. Every step of the way the path becomes more clear whether I am in the role of the teacher or the student, the opportunities for learning are endless.
For me, one of the greatest gifts is the opportunity to share the powerful and truly transformative practice of yoga with those around me... infusing the magic of connecting subtle energies within the body with the elements of the world all around us. My classes weave together the ancient teachings of yoga with the earth based knowlege of indienous people from around the world.
