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

My classes are always based on my own personal practise, with a strong focus on the breath. I draw my inspiration from many linages of yoga and like to explore the challenges that arise in uncomplicated asana.

Mellow: Yin inspired practise with plenty of time to feel into the shapes and be with your breath. AM

Unified: Grounding steady flows giving students the space and time to feel and breath. 

Dynamic: Uncomplicated; an opportunity to explore strength and challenge in the simplicity of the asana. 

About me: 

Beginning my career in the hospitality industry, I eventually fell into the dental industry working my way up to managing practices for almost 10 years. During this time I was fortunate to work alongside people who loved their jobs. Being in this environment, surrounded by passionate people inspired me to uncover my passion and purpose in life. 

Yoga had been calling me for years but it wasn’t until 2008 that I came to the practise regularly in a search to regain strength and flexibility after I poorly managed a knee reconstruction. I became absorbed in the practise and was initially unaware of the profound impact yoga was having on me. Combined with weekly Ayurveda treatments, I began to notice subtle shifts in my energy, my behaviour and my attitude towards life. I made a number of significant life changes and began creating and living a life I wanted to live with integrity, trust, and belief in myself.
