500 hour Yoga Alliance Trained Yoga Teacher
My Yoga Journey.
My introduction to teaching yoga was in Costa Rica in June 2013 when I completed my Yoga Alliance 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training in Vinyasa Flow Yoga with Andrea Klunder and lauren Znacko. I lived and studied at the yoga farm: an eco yoga project in sustainable permaculture. I feel honoured to have trained in such a stunningly wild but pure place. It was here, that I truly discovered how good our bodies and mind are supposed to feel. I am inspired by nature, organic pattern and our evolutionary and embryological unfolding.
Curious and ready to delve deeper into new means of inquiry using the art of yoga, I completed my 200 hour Embodied Flow Teacher Training in Bali in December 2015, studying under Tara Judelle and Scott Lyons. Embodied flow draws on Body-Mind Centering and somatic psychotherapy, and science to delve into the on going exploration into consciousness. Weaving traditional yoga philosophy and knowledge, with what we know in the 21st century, provides even more means to explore the expansion of consciousness and awareness. This ultimately allows us to find a deep sense of ease, strength and connectivity in the 21st century human form.
I believe that yoga is a confrontation as well as reconciliation with our mind and body. Yoga creates an opportunity to listen to how one’s own personal body and mind feels. It takes us away from outside influences so that we can reconnect with our inner self, at the root of which truth can shine and true healing can be done.
As a teacher you are always a student and as a student you are always a teacher. I grow as a teacher with every class, student, exploration, and discovery on the mat and in my life. I am simply offering my part of the yoga conversation as I know it now.
