I first came to yoga because I had very bad sciatica pain and could hardly stand up, this was due to bad posture and a scoliosis I developed during my years growing up! I noticed I felt much better after a yoga class, my posture started to improve and I had no more pain.
With regular practice, I discovered yoga’s many benefits. Focusing on the breath helps to quieten my mind, building self-awareness and calmness which I carry over from my practice into my daily life.
I believe that yoga offers us an opportunity to rediscover our true selves, to rediscover the deep sense of calm and well-being that is always within; and that when we bring the energy of the heart and the mind into alignment, truly great things can happen! This deep understanding of yoga has led to a beautiful spiritual path I would like to share with others.
Having studied various forms of yoga since 1998 including Asthanga, Satyananda, Vinyasa and Chi Gung Yoga, I now teach a ‘flow’ style of yoga. My classes are informative and fun and are influenced by my belief in practicing with awareness and with intention, developing breath awareness, meditative peace, learn postural alignment, and the joy that is yoga! Since the birth of my beautiful son Keanu, I have gained a much deeper understanding of teaching pre-natal and post-natal yoga classes. I love to teach pregnancy classes to not only connect to the life that is growing within but to develop a deeper understanding of yourself and give you the tools to prepare for birth.
