"I truly believe that Yoga has the power to create balance and harmony of both the mind and body, and through this can transform lives. Whether an individual is looking to strengthen the body and become fitter and more flexible, open the mind and learn to live more mindfully and in the present moment, or a combination of many elements- Yoga really can take you on a wonderful journey of self discovery and understanding."
There are many misconceptions about Yoga, including that it is just about being about to touch your toes or do a handstand. Some think it is a very serious practice that is almost religious. As a teacher I want to share with people that this just isn't true, and Yoga is a wonderful and all inclusive practice.
A bit of background into my own personal Yoga journey. A cliche maybe, but a true story none the less- after running into a pretty tough period in my life, I believe that Yoga found me. It had, and continues to have a huge impact on my life- both on and off the mat. I was so inspired to learn more myself, and also to be able to share this amazing practice and experience with others, that I embarked on a 200 hour 2 year teacher training course with RYS Friends of Yoga International (FRYOG). Since qualifying, I have quit a long corporate based career to follow my passion of sharing Yoga with others, and promoting a happier and healthier lifestyle.
I am a RYT 200 Hour with Yoga Alliance and affiliated with IYN (Independent Yoga Network), and hold current teachers insurance. I teach private 1-1 or small group classes, regular studio and University classes, and Corporate Karma (workplace Yoga). For more information check my website, and don't hesitate to get in touch with me- I would love to hear from you!
