I’ve practiced Hatha, Ashtanga, Vinyasa and hot yoga at different times in my life. I teach a variety of yoga classes, ranging from Scaravelli inspired Hatha Yoga to Vinyasa Flow, incorporating asana, pranayama, energy-balancing practices and meditation. I’m sensitive to my students’ needs and adapt my classes accordingly. There might be many different styles, but, in essence, there is only one yoga.

 

I’ve had the privilege of being taught by some amazing teachers – Ulrike Lamprecht (traditional Ashtanga Yoga Teacher taught to her by Sharath R. Jois, grandson of the late Sri K. Pattabhi Jois of Mysore India), Lauren Mensikovas (Vinyasa Yoga Teacher trained by Baptiste Power Vinyasa Institute in the USA) and Jim Harrington (Vinyasa Yoga and Yoga Synergy teacher who studied with Simon Borg-Olivier)

 

In 2013 I trained with Jim Harrington to become a yoga teacher. I was attracted to his teaching because of my background in Exercise Science and Pilates. Jim Harrington’s ability to unlock the potential of the body through alignment and correct muscle recruitment is inspiring. This was also the start of my spiritual journey into the depths of yoga and yoga philosophy.

 

After my second pregnancy with our identical twin boys, I learnt to be more gentle with myself and my body. It was then that I was introduced to the work of Vanda Scaravelli and felt inspired by her approach of using gravity, the breath and the wave:

 

“It is not so much the performance of the exercises that matters, but how we approach them mentally and physically.”

 

I then completed my 500 hour Meridian Yoga teacher training with Annie Cryar, incorporating meridian and energy work with Vanda Scaravelli’s philosophies, combining my training and love for Shiatsu with yoga. My journey of study continues to inspire my teaching journey…

When I’m not teaching, my own daily practice includes yoga, Pilates, swimming and running. I have a deep connection with the ocean and have always lived close to her. I surf as often as I can and when there’s no waves, I like to run along side the sea and sense her rhythm.

 

"Why are we doing yoga?... No motivation, no aims, only an agreeable appointment for the body to look forward to. We do it for the fun of it. To twist, stretch, and move around, is pleasant and enjoyable, a body holiday. There is an unexpected delight in meeting earth and sky at the same moment."
