Pause, breathe, feel then move.
My main intention is to guide students towards a more expanded definition of self. Fundamental to my teaching is the knowledge that each person is already complete and whole. However, in the same way that the clouds can sometimes hide the light of the sun, the tensions in our body and mind can sometimes reduce the access to our inner potential, making it harder for us to experience ourselves fully. The yoga techniques, philosophy and practices give us a new understanding and insight that help us live with or clear away the clouds. As such a sense of freedom and joy naturally arise, it becomes easier to experience harmony and achieve our goals.
My yogic journey has taught me that it is possible to access our potential through self-awareness, movement, and a simple willingness to be a student of life. My approach draws from my professional experience as an experienced yoga teacher and yoga therapist, and my personal experience as a practicing yogi, athlete, and psychology graduate.
I approach my practice, holistically and create plans or pedagogy that will address multiple aspects of the human experience: body, mind/emotions, breathing and awareness of our connection to life. Classes/Sessions can be described as a balance between open exploration and purposeful alignment principles. My approach is detail oriented, interactive, and anchored by a clear strategy and higher purpose. Students can expect to learn something new each class/session and are given time to pause, feel and breathe.
My teaching is a fusion of various somatic and Hatha yoga practices that value breathing, body-alignment, and the body as a multi-system organism.
I’m playful, curious, and dedicated to exploring the infinite possibilities available to us in this lifetime. As such, my classes are ideal for those who have an open sense of curiosity, a willingness to learn and self-explore and an interest in personal development.
