I have been teaching Yoga since 2003 and am a Senior Level 3 Teacher with Yoga Australia.
When I first started practicing Yoga I had the flexibility of a fence post and the mind of a cheeky monkey that had consumed way too many banana smoothies. And as challenging as it was (and still is!) I loved every bit of it. Because I knew, even when it challenged me on every level and brought up all manner of Samskaras, that this would change my life and I was finally on the path home.
I soon discovered that Yoga was very different from my narrow perceptions of it being about just sitting still for hours and wrapping yourself up like a pretzel. Yoga is this huge, wonderous adventure where you get to explore the ever-changing, amazing universe that is within you.
I went to Los Angeles and became a certified Bikram Yoga Teacher in 2003, and quickly followed it by completing Teacher Training at The Yoga Academy of Pune, India in 2004; then MindBodyMoves Yoga for Kids 2005; BodyMindLife Yoga Teacher Training in 2008 ; Sarah Powers Yin Teacher Training 2015; Qi Yoga Restorative Yoga Teacher Training 2015, as well as many workshops and retreats with esteemed teachers from around the world (Mauricio Eberlein, Eion Finn, Eileen Hall, Mark Breadner, Nicole Walsh , Mark O'Brien, Marc St Pierre, Duncan Peak, to name a few).
It is my intention to instill passion, knowledge and lightheartedness into every class, and to provide a safe and supportive environment in which everyone feels great about themselves - healing old injuries, be they physical or otherwise, de-stressing, becoming stronger, healthier and happier.
In my own practice, I have witnessed incredible progress, simply through a shift in perception and focus, and that blows me away. We have the power, it is all within us. Krishnamurti said "In oneself lies the whole world, and if you know how to look and learn, then the door is there and the key is in your hand. Nobody on earth can give you either the key or the door to open, except yourself." Be Powerful.
