Living a deep and meaningful life, living a life being true to oneSelf... has always been what has driven me - the desire for Truth, Freedom and Love.
At the end of a Yoga class back in 1995, during the final relaxation in savasana (corpse pose), I experienced a profound sense of Freedom... and knew that I had 'stumbled' upon something very special.
During the relaxation, the teacher's voice drifted off into the distance, and I found myself paused before an open doorway...
I stepped inside, and was bathed in Peace, Stillness and Silence.
I felt absolutely Free.
It was a place my Soul knew well, and a place the body and mind had been searching for.
As a Yoga teacher, my Yoga teaching style is rooted in my personal experience of Yoga - the numerous teachers I have been blessed to have had; my own journey on and off the mat; the many students who have passed through my classes - all have influenced me and the way I teach.
I teach a blend of all of the above and more, appreciating the various gems found in all Yoga styles, systems and schools.
It seems that there is a time and a place for everything. In my own practice on the mat, and in life in general, I remain an ongoing student of Yoga, and as such, my practice and teaching continue to be an organic reflection of the world around and within.
My classes are suitable for all levels - I give easier and more advanced options where appropriate. I believes ‘level’ refers more to the awareness and focus one brings to the practice rather than to performance.
In a Yoga retreat setting, classes are 'progressive', and on a detox retreat, specific asanas, sequences and kriyas (cleansing exercises) are practised to assist with the cleansing process.
Over the years, I have taught a wide range of abilities, levels and speciality groups, including: ante-natal, children's yoga and special needs.
I consider Yoga to be a lot more than asana (postures), and my classes incorporate the other magical aspects of Yoga - inviting students to immerse themselves in a Yoga way of living and being.
