My Teaching Style
I like to take my time teaching certain postures, workshop them, and help you get into an alignment that not only keeps you safe, but also your practise always challenged! I also want you to get deep into postures beyond just the physical and I will often talk about the body’s energetic centres in the practise. Each month I teach a different breath exercise or pranayama which relaxes the mind for sivasana, and I often include a guided meditation. I love to chant traditional Indian yogic mantras at the end of class like the Gayatri and the Mahamrinyunjaya mantra, to create a full holistic practise. Hopefully my classes encourage you to go home and continue your practise daily, even when you are not Humming with us!
I have been a committed yoga practitioner since 2002. My practice began with Ashtanga vinyasa and it’s a style of practice that I still love to this day, although I no longer practice it regularly. In that time I have travelled and lived all over the world and have been lucky enough to experience many different styles of yoga- finally coming to the understanding that they all bring you back to the same place. I lived and worked in Mumbai, India for several years and I was fortunate enough to be mentored there by one of India’s most beautiful teachers Vandana Yadav. I began teaching classes in India under her guidance and also completed my yoga teacher training in Goa- a life changing experience that solidified my commitment to yoga and teaching.
If you were stranded on an island, what three things would you take with you?
A gorgeous man.
A never ending supply of suncream.
A machete to cut open coconuts and build my own architecturally designed beach house ala Swiss family Robinson.
When I’m not teaching Yoga, you’ll find me...
