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:
Mellow: A very Yin-styled chilled practice, with long held poses, juicy meditations, visualisations, breath work and all the props!
Unified: A slower flow with loads of options and variations, but overall a simpler, steady practice with repeated sequences, holds and lots of instruction.
Dynamic: A faster and more intense flow which will build heat and heart! We’ll explore longer sequences, new shapes, interesting transitions and lots of strength.
I first came to yoga over 20 years ago, and way back then it was a sporadic practice to say the least, with no real commitment or passion. But that all changed in my early 20's when I moved to Sydney and started battling with major and severe depression. On the outside, I had it going on. I landed my dream job in the music industry right out of uni, and quickly worked with some of the biggest bands in the world.
But in reality, I was on medication, I was seeing a myriad of counsellors and psychologists, and still, I was slipping. Then it all came to a head and I was offered some sick leave from my job to 'get better'. It was during this time that I found a local lunchtime yoga class - where I moved, I breathed, and I came back to ‘me’.
Yoga changed my life. It made me fall in love with me again, and it was just a couple of years later that I did my first teacher training. I’m now lucky enough to share this powerful practice with others - and I know it can do the same for you!
Afternoon naps! I love a sneaky nap after reading a book in bed on a day off.
I have a background in the music industry so have a song to suit every moment, it’s way too hard to narrow it down to just one song. But I love indie shoe-gazing guitar music. Give me a heart-felt lyric and a guitar over dance stuff any day.
Person who most inspires you
Cheesy as it may sound - my yoga students. Day in and day out they show up, try new poses, fall out of them, and try them again! I get to see their practice totally transform with consistent practice and effort, and it’s super inspiring to watch and be a part of.
