Here’s the short version: I have explored lots of different things intellectually, socially, spiritually, and physically in order to get really good at creating a life I love and being true to myself. This has taken time over the years to practice and get it right and often I challenge myself to continue practicing if I think I am becoming complacent with my life or work. I like to be involved with one new thing on an on-going basis to encourage myself to look at things in a fresh perspective. The things I really love doing are helping people to implement the important small changes in their lives so they can begin to see benefits quickly and making complex ideas more understandable and accessible in my teaching. Natural health has become my passion.
For those of you who want the professional bio, here it is! –
I have had extensive training and experience in Neuromuscular Therapy and Physio work which informed dramatically my knowledge of anatomy and physiology. I worked as a Sports Therapist and Remedial massage Therapist since 1995 and have recently let this go to focus exclusively on Yoga. Previously, I obtained a Master’s degree in Counselling and a B.A. in Counselling and Rehabilitation. Through these two distinct branches of therapy, I bring a unique breadth of knowledge, compassion, and practical experience to my teaching.
I began teaching Yoga as an occasional cover teacher for a local studio in the USA, after having been a very keen student for a few years. I quickly discovered how much more there was to teaching Yoga than simply leading a class, so I enrolled in a Kripalu teaching program and formally completing my teacher training in 2005. Wanting to learn more, I subsequently completed an advanced 500 hour teacher training (2008).
I love learning as much as I love teaching, and have since completed several more training programs, including Yoga for Healthy Lower Backs (130 hours) and have completed a Yoga Therapy Diploma. I’m now a Senior Yoga Teacher with Yoga Alliance Professionals, which means I have taught more than 4000 hours.
I consider myself first and foremost a perennial student and I continue to teach, study, and practice regularly. I believe my continued study and practice has brought a depth and precision to my Yoga teaching. After all these years, I still love Yoga – both teaching and learning more about it!
My classes reflect my deep understanding of Yoga and an awareness of body and mind gained though years of study and practice. The more you practice Yoga with this deep sense of awareness, the more benefit you will get from your practice. Accessing your own body awareness is key; and teaching you to do this is my aim in classes and private tuition.
Please contact me if you’d like to try one of the classes I have on offer, or just to have a chat.
