My classes are filled with movements and inspirations from my personal practice, and tend to focus largely on creating space within the body, as well as creating new movement pathways with strength and mindful movement.
For me, yoga has been key in allowing me to tap deeper into energetics of the body, from the way tension behaves as pain, to the way spirit gently encourages us to open up.
I will encourage you to let go a little, in order to open yourself up to the profound effect that subtle changes can have on us, on and off the mat. I think we've lost touch with all that really matters in life and as a teacher, I can't show you what to find, but I can show you where to look.
Yoga is a tool to help you understand how wonderful you already are. Through my teaching I like to facilitate inner growth and a sense of connection. I'd like to give people an opportunity to let go of their self-judgement and just look at themselves with great appreciation. To connect their breath and movement, their body and mind, to find their inner power.
I like to work around the individual needs of my students, working at different levels. Allowing everyone to find their own path, creating a deep understanding of what is good for YOU.
I am a Level 3 Senior Registered Teacher with Yoga Australia and have practiced yoga for over 17 years and taught for over 15 years. I completed over 1000 hours of training, and am certified in both Ashtanga Vinyasa and Yin yoga.
Recently I have completed an advanced international teacher training with Mark Stephens (California) in order to develop further skills to mentor and teach other yoga teachers.
In my teaching I like to offer strong classes where students are challenged in order to find strength and self belief. My teaching is filled with energy and joy. New and challenging poses fascinate me, however nothing gives me more joy than working on foundational poses and experiencing how extremely challenging these ‘basic’ postures are when practiced correctly.
The balance yoga offers in strength and flexibility of both body and mind is truly amazing.
In the style of Vinyasa Yoga, asanas will be linked together with the breath in a sequence built to feel like a dance. For more information on the elements of yoga that this class will cover, please see the Teacher's bio.
This class is suitable for all levels of practitioners, though if you have concerns, please arrive early and speak to your Teacher.
