My yoga is your yoga
People often ask me what style of yoga I teach. The truth is over the years it has become a fusion of styles steeped in various disciplines, learnings and experiences that now combine and filter through me as I cherry pick what to offer you.
I am not married to one method, teacher or philosophy, instead I look at my students and aim to offer them an experience that is meaningful, relevant and available both on and off the mat.
At the heart of everything I do is the intention to bring you home to the heart of you.
I teach vinyasa-based yoga, as well as restorative and yin.
The yoga I offer is a powerful, yet available, person-centred practice.
It is designed to help you awaken awareness in the body through dynamic movement and develop a deep, harmonious connection between your heart, body and mind.
My vinyasa-based yoga is a systematic approach to yoga practice that mindfully builds the strength and stability needed to support flexibility while promoting relaxation and tension release for more presence and peace. It is rooted in Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga, inspired by Ayurveda and influenced by the therapeutic practice principles outlined by Krishnamacharya, as well my own personal enquiry.
For me the focus is on providing you, as an individual, with the right tools to honour your body and empower your own practice in a sincere and playful way.
My active yoga classes are deep and dynamic and place emphasis on the process of doing yoga rather than the performance. Through creative sequencing, correct alignment, activation and engagement, breath, bandha and drishti I invite you to explore the still point between effort and surrender by balancing strength with softness in a way that is explorative and fun.
My restorative sessions are more soul soothing and meditative. They provide you with a safe, nourishing space to slow down and tune in, promoting relaxation.
All my classes are peppered with practical philosophy that brings yoga to life in your everyday life.
My classes are for you if…
- You are totally new to yoga and want to start a practice safely in an encouraging, non-competitive environment.
- You have been doing yoga for a while and aren’t sure how to progress your practice effectively.
- You’re interested in learning techniques that will empower your practice and help you to find freedom in your body.
- You have an open, enquiring mind.
