As a yoga teacher my passion is to enlighten and heighten a nurturing flow of breath and create freedom in the body, mind, and spirit of my students. Integrating a vibrant sequential flow with the coordination of breath is an essential element of my teaching. Focusing on connecting the breath, the yoga class becomes a moving meditation, a dance of the inner self. Taking this one step further, I guide my students to investigate their true nature, honouring their own unique expression and explore how they are a small part of a universal tapestry, incorporating relaxation techniques in a positive and tranquil manner.
I encourage students to make personal choices during their yoga practice and develop skills to help them listen to their bodies. Leading my students to discover sensitive body awareness, establish a relationship with their breath, and encourage a compassionate and joyful attitude towards themselves and the world around them is my inspiration and mission as a yoga teacher.
Since 1994 when I began within the healing arts as a Holistic Therapist and an Ayurvedic Therapist these aspects dovetail beautifully and are an integral part of my teachings promoting the healing aspect of yoga. I strive to use eloquent language when I teach and value the beauty of clear communication as the key to greater understanding. I feel my responsibility as a teacher is to constantly investigate new ways to present the ancient teachings I am sharing with others, bringing healing mantras and the symbolism of the primordial elements into class, guiding students to explore the union between their mind, body and spirit and with this opens the door to self-discovery and illumination.
