I am a 350 hour accredited yoga teacher certifying with my longtime teachers, internationally renowned Monica Gauci and Gregor Maehle.
Introduced to yoga and Trancendental Meditation as a child by my parents, I rediscovered yoga on my own terms as a young adult & began a lifelong process to integrate yoga into my life.
My initial foray in yoga began with Iyengar yoga in 1996, but my Iyengar teacher urged me to practise the Ashtanga tradition and I have never looked back.
Ashtanga yoga suited my hypermobile body as the strength it built gave my body the stability it needed. That stability permeated other aspects of my life and provided a welcome sense of grounding.
Yoga has been a constant in my life for over 2 decades. Like an old friend I can turn to, I check in with myself daily with the practice of Ashtanga yoga and off the mat, this has helped me navigate the ebbs and flows and sometimes stormy seas of life.
Ashtanga is a deeply personal practice which has endowed me with interoception - a sense of the internal state of the body.
