500 hour Yoga Alliance Trained Yoga Teacher
My Yoga Journey.
Following my university studies in English Literature, I took a trip to Costa Rica where 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. 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 so it was the perfect setting.
Curious and ready to delve deeper into new way of teaching and studying yoga I completed my 200 hour Embodied Flow Teacher Training in Bali in December 2015, studying under Tara Judelle and Scott Lyons. Embodied flow is a system of transformational yoga that invites you into the deepest sense of self. Through an integrative blend of hatha yoga, somatics, mind-body centring, movement meditations, tantric philosophy, and science it elicits the experience of stepping into flow as meditation in action. Tara Judelle is still my go to teacher. She is an incredibly inspiring facilitator/teacher and I continue to learn so much from her.
For me, yoga is a container to explore, understand, and analyse yourself and this wonderful world we live in. It is a set of practices; asana (physical practice), pranayama (breath) meditation and philosophy to live an intelligent life of freedom, strength and connectivity. It is a continuous practice, of finding your way, being perceptive and staying connected to nature and others.
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.
