My practice started in a hot, sweaty Bikram studio which has laid the foundations for a dedicated and disciplined practiced. Like most students once we feel that post-practice-buzz we want to know more, learn more and we become curious. My curiosity led me to try Vinyasa which sparked my desire to teach.
I completed my first 200YTT with Power Living back in 2014. Since then I’ve continued to feed my desire to learn by completing further trainings with; Cassie Lee and Duncan Peak through Power Living, Yin Yoga with Hugh Lee, Ashtanga YTT in India, 300YTT with Christina Gagnier and Marysia Do.
My aim as a teacher is to hold space for students to lovingly find their way back home to themselves. I use intelligent sequencing, self enquiry & music to inspire students to feel awakened to their infinite potential, connected to themselves and their surroundings.
