I started exploring the world of yoga and meditation in 1999 and have since been amazed at how it has transformed my perception of life. I’m intrigued at how the practice of yoga helps to improve your relationship with your body and how this affects your relationship with the world around you. I completed my first teacher training in Thailand in 2012, at Jivani Yoga School (formerly Virajati Yoga School), with Ashton Szabo, Octavio Salvado and Emma Warmington. I followed this with my second training in 2014-15, in London with Bridget Woods Kramer, the UK’s most Senior Anusara teacher. Carlos Pomeda, Tara Judelle, Sally Kempton and Ananda Leone are other teachers who’ve had a profound effect on my practice and teaching. Yoga is a never-ending path of learning, I continue to grow and develop through my practice, studies, trainings and life experiences.
I have been teaching group classes, private lessons, and retreats in London, Bali and South Africa and am currently based in Lisbon, Portugal.
For me, to practise yoga is to experience freedom and the lightness of being suspended between earth and sky; to know how to respond rather than react; to remain open to life when I would otherwise close down; to feel spacious, connected and at one with the world.
In my classes, I aim to share these benefits with students, encouraging them to use yoga to develop and maintain a healthy relationship with their bodies, minds, souls, the world around them, and ultimately with the divine. When we begin this communication with our bodies, we tend to love and respect it more, feed it only good food and realise and release habits and behaviours that no longer serve us. This love and respect extends outwards to other people, animals and the planet. This process is part of our evolution, this is how we begin to raise consciousness.
I hope to see you on a mat soon!
