Approach

What yoga do I teach?

I’m qualified to teach Vinyasa yoga, Yin yoga, Yang to Yin, Meditation, Breathing techniques and Myofascial Yin yoga (roll and release of soft tissues combined with Yin yoga – great for rehabilitation and relaxation). When combined all of these techniques bring a sense of balance to the body and harmony to the mind.

To me, yoga is more than fancy poses and being able to touch your toes, it’s a system and philosophy for living a life of integrity, authenticity, balance and union. Originating in India, yoga is a living tradition that’s more than 5,000 years old and I honour and utilise these ancient techniques in a relatable way for the western modern mind.

Along with the timeless techniques of the past, I integrate my knowledge in anatomy and the body in movement into my teaching and style of yoga, combining the wisdom of tradition and the innovation of modern sports science. 

The most useful part of my knowledge and experience is understanding how to navigate injuries in movement, a skill I learnt while working as a dancer and experiencing the usual wear and tear from a demanding physical career. If you have an injury and get a professional diagnosis, I can troubleshoot your yoga, find you modifications and keep you moving safely so that you can get back to your life with more freedom and less pain.   

My goal is to meet you as you are, in this body, as it is right now and to share with you yoga that is relatable, accessible, adaptable and fun. My hope is that you develop a yoga practice over time that grounds you when you’re unsteady, uplifts you when you’re down, and enriches your life for the better.

 

Why yoga 

Introducing the practice of yoga and meditation into your life provides many benefits beyond the physical. Initially we may experience yoga as physically challenging and mentally confronting, but over time and with a supportive and individualised approach to the practice, we can start to experience subtle changes that impact our everyday lives for the better. 

With consistent practice, the power of yoga lies in our ability to see through our days with more clarity, our outlook and attitude toward life is enhanced and the ability to cope with everyday challenges and stressors is refined and reinforced. 

My approach includes physical postures, breathing techniques, relaxation and meditation, all of these are ultimately a journey in how the body moves, breathes and relaxes into stillness.

On a deeper level, it refines how the mind through the practice of yoga can sync up with the efforts of the body and the breath, and lead us to a state of peace, bliss, connection and contentment. 

 

How will yoga impact your life? 

 

  • Yoga makes us calmer parents and partners and by nature, better listeners to ourselves and others.
  • Yoga improves our general mood and approach to life, uplifting and grounding simultaneously. 
  • Yoga improves physical health, posture and sleep quality.
  • Yoga helps to alleviate symptoms of depression and anxiety. 
  • Yoga brings our awareness to the present moment, giving us the ability to be here, now, and enjoy the richness of all that life has to offer.
