Let us practice ...
I am a friend and a guide. A sister, and partner in crime. I travel the world teaching yoga to students to help them experience the amazing benefits of yoga, inside and out.
I believe that we are all yogis (most of us just don't know) and that life – both on and off the mat – should be an adventurous, playful journey towards freedom, and towards your truth. This truth includes a very full heart, a still mind and amazing physical wellness.
I’m not here to be a guru, or to reinvent the wheel pose. What I teach has been taught for thousands of years. The postures and beliefs are nothing new.
What is new is how I guide my students towards themselves. In a mindful, engaging and fresh way. Facing yourself, alone in your bow pose, does not have to be scary or strict. In my classes, my students laugh, release, sink deeper, fly higher, let go and occasionally even cry.
I help beautiful, amazing people to feel and reconnect with themselves. The emphasis is on dissolving the layers ‘til it’s just you and your breath, centred and connected, in tune with your inner wisdom.
And then – the truly transformational part – to take that feeling with you as you journey through your daily life.
I am aligned with the traditions of hatha yoga, but I believe that everyone needs to find the internal, intuitive approach that works best for them.
The core of my practise:
The core of my practise:
- Organic Vinyasa Flow: I create waves of motion and emotion. Waves of stillness, of the seasons, and of awareness. The waves in class are like those in life: through flux, change and moments of stillness, we build resilience and grace. When we know how to ride the waves of energy within our bodies, we can meet them in our outer world with ease and lightness.
- Alignment: Through correct alignment, we learn to practise safely, begin to utilise the muscles effectively and build strength and tone. We also start to tune in to the passage of energy through our bodies. The foundational alignment skills I teach, will revolutionise your postures, your practice and your life. The transformation through correct alignment is powerful and will help you to stay in your integrity on and of the mat.
- Centre - Earth - Freedom: Connect to your core, and a wellspring of your inner wisdom and strength becomes accessible. Being connected and grounded on the earth has a wonderful way of keeping us connected and grounded in life. From this place of groundedness and core connection, self-respect, love and integrity we are able to express ourselves fluidly and freely.
- The Elements: Earth, fire, water, wind and space. The elements of life as taught in Ayurveda help us connect to our practice and its applications in a deeper and meaningful way.
- The Chakras: The sanskrit word chakra means wheel or disk. Each of the chakras relates to a unique aspect of your being and has its own distinct character. Anatomically seen, the main 7 chakras are located along the spine, our central energy line, called Sushumna. Chakras relate to body functions, distinct levels of consciousness, elements, colours, sounds, etc. Through the practice of yoga and meditation we keep our chakras healthy and support our psychological, emotional and spiritual wellbeing.
