My Teaching Style
I was trained in the Jivamukti lineage, including the one-month long residential teacher training and the one-on-one 800hr mentor program. With that foundation, my classes now are focused on finding the balance between effort and grace in the asana. I want students to feel supported during class and more alive, grounded and focused after class.
My movement practice is varied and I’m inspired by my yoga teachers, but also in the circus community I practice handbalancing and aerial silks; and in the wider movement community - animal flow and freeform movement. Movement is my medicine, a way to come unstuck and develop strength and ease in the world. I co-run a company called Wild Child Moves, which marries my two loves - movement and deep ecology/rewilding/nature connection practice and so these two themes are also often present in my yoga classes.
Why I love yoga
Yoga pulls us inward, starting with the basic practice of anchoring into our bodies. It’s too easy to be disconnected, distracted, stressed and in our heads in this urban environment and yoga gives us wonderful space from all that.
Returning to my beautiful coastal hometown to soak in the ocean and the wild places.
When I'm doing yoga, you'll find me...
Either 5 metres up an aerial silk, in my happy place somewhere wild, or in bed watching netflix - it’s all about balance right? haha
