My intention is to make yoga accessible to everyone. I like to adapt my teaching in response to my students, so they can discover their own individual yoga practice, “on and off the mat”.
I have completed 500 hours, teacher training with Byron Yoga, where I continue to work. I have also completed yoga teacher training with AntiGravity®Yoga and Rainbow Kids Yoga. I am a registered Relax & Renew® restorative yoga teacher, trained by Judith Lasater. I’ve also attended workshops with Maria Kirsten, Nicky Knoff, Donna Farhi, Elena Brower and Leslie Kaminoff. My gratitude goes to Glenn Ceresoli, Tony Rothberg and Celeste Bruce for their constant guidance and support. Heartfelt thanks to my family, blood and chosen, for keeping it real.
I've been practicing yoga since 1990 and have a daily meditation practice. The yoga I teach, is founded in the traditions of Iyengar yoga, focusing on the principles of anatomy and physiology, to access deeper levels of consciousness, awareness and happiness. By focusing on the breath, throughout your yoga practice, it's possible to find peace of mind. I attend regular pilates sessions and incorporate pilates based exercises into my classes. Every day, whilst practising, I observe and listen which in turn informs my teaching.
Since 2011, I have been fortunate to experience teaching to a wide range of students, elders, teenagers, elite sports people, corporate staff and private clients. I've developed chair yoga exercises and adapted restorative yoga sequences to bring about deep relaxation. All forms of exercise, such as running, swimming, surfing, dance, sports and gym workouts can be enhanced through yoga, giving you more freedom of movement and focus. I like to accomodate all levels of fitness and mobility.
However you come across yoga, make it your own yoga practice. When you observe your responses and sensations, you will develop a practice of contemplation and meditation. Remaining completely present, is one of the truly beautiful aspects of yoga.
