My Yoga Journey.
Following my university studies in English Literature, I took an incredible life changing trip to Costa Rica to complete my 200 hour Intensive Yoga Teacher Training. 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. Since then I have traveled far to train with the best teachers from Bali to Peru. Trained in Hatha, Vinyasa Flow, Embodied Flow, Aerial Yoga, Mindfulness, Yin, Meditation and Pre and Post natal yoga. I love learning and being able to teach and live what I love and believe is an honor.
My Schools of Yoga
Embodied Flow with Tara Judelle and Scott Lyons
Embodied flow is an integrative blend of hatha yoga, somatics, free movement, mind-body centering, tantric philosophy, and science. It elicits the experience of stepping into flow as meditation in action. I completed a 200hr Teacher Training in Embodied Flow with Tara and Scott in Bali in 2016 and continue to study with them on intensives and online courses.
Tiffany Cruikshank and Tara Judelle are my go to teachers. They are hugely inspirational, incredible facilitators and educators of yoga. I am currently blending the two schools, yoga medicine and embodied flow in to my classes to offer the balance of both a science/medical and an embodied feeling/sensing approach.
Aerial Yoga - Follow the link at the top of the page to find out about that story!
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.
Yoga Medicine - Yin and Meditation training with Tiffany Cruikshank and Rashmir Bashmir
Yoga Medicine is not a style of yoga but rather a training that educates the teacher to understand the body & create individualized yoga programs for the student based on their understanding of the anatomy, biomechanics, physiology & the traditional practice of yoga. I especially wanted to complete my Yin yoga and mediation with Yoga Medicine as I know Tiffany’s knowledgeable background in Chinese Medicine and Rashmir’s background in Clinical Psychology. I’m continuing to learn from them through their extensive online courses and reading material.
