My teaching Style
Empowering people to move with their breath, safely and with a sense of enjoyment, is my primary goal as a teacher.  Expect creative, flowing sequences with an emphasis on healthy alignment and supportive breath.  I have the utmost respect for asana, pranayama and meditation practices, but I also love bringing in a sense of lightness and play into my classes: I’ve never met a yoga pun I didn’t like.

Each of our teachers take inspiration from their lineage of yoga and personal practice when designing their classes, so this is a little bit more about how I uniquely deliver each style of class:

Mellow Hum:  Morning and Afternoon Mellows will include both long restorative holds and gentle flows to invigorate and set you up for a balanced day.  Evening Mellows will be gentler still, winding down the body and mind for a restful night’s sleep.

Unified Hum: Steady flowing sequences, inclusive postures with modifications/variations offered to suit all levels.  

Dynamic Hum: Preparing the body to explore more challenging shapes and transitions. Movements from the world of dance and functional strength training may often make guest appearances within the Dynamic sequencing.

About Me
I’m Californian by birth, a New Yorker by experience and a proud Australian by marriage.  I studied drama and classical voice at New York University and had the great fortune to perform on Broadway, the Sydney Opera House and Melbourne’s own State Theatre.  I am obsessed with creativity: design, cooking, performance, film, craft, visual and literary arts. 

Person who most inspires you?
Might be a tad corny, but I am inspired by anyone who shows up for their first yoga class.
 

Favorite yoga posture/asana?
Eka Pada Rajakapotasana, aka Pigeon.  Love a bit of pige.
 

Past working experience before becoming a yoga teacher?
Actress, singer, retired Disney Princess.  True story.
