I first practiced yoga in my 30's, it seemed to come along at just the right moment. I walked past my local studio and although I'd been familiar with yoga and had practiced pilates for a number of years, this was the first time I decided to give it a try.
As I attended more classes, I discovered an increased internal sense of concentration and awareness. I was able to observe the head chatter rather than be consumed by it, I learnt to consciously relax my breath and I could feel my physical body opening up. I could very quickly feel how small but significant changes were improving my physical health and emotional well being. In attending regular classes, I was developing an awareness that gave me resilience and perspective.
Learning a range yoga and meditation styles I was keen to study the passion I had discovered further. After a couple of years of developing my practice I completed a globally recognised Sivananda teacher training in upstate New York. The focused and disciplined course is a devotional interpretation of Hatha yoga and equips its students with a strong grounding in yoga philosophy, asana (physical practice) and pranayama (breath).
The certification allowed me to turn my instinct to teach into practice. I offer a relaxed environment for all students, pressing pause on the competition and comparison to the experience of the outside world. My calm voice and open approach helps you to come back to yourself and focus inward. The results felt from your practice will be profound and inspiring.
