I began my yoga journey in my teenage years. Like most, I was drawn to the practice from a physical perspective and over time began to discover so much more. When I went through a period of sickness my practice served as a beacon to remind me to listen to myself, that all answers are within. I love to share dynamic classes with my students that encourage them to make a deeper inquiry into themselves. I enjoy interweaving philosophy, sound and meditation into all of my classes.
Adjustments/Assists: Yes, all the yumminess.
Theming: I like to theme my classes based on a philosophical teaching of yoga or a chakra to give a deeper context and purpose behind the asana sequence.
Sequencing: My sequencing is dynamic when it comes to vinyasa. You'll likely not know what's coming next! I like to keep things fresh interesting and see my students moving in new ways to unlock different parts of themselves.
My personal practice and learning from my teachers.
It continues to evolve each day, I'm constantly learning from my personal practice but also from my students.
Janet Stone, Simon Park, Dena Kingsberg, Sally Kempton.
Slow, flowy and strong with creative transitions. I'm not one to teach you a flow and get you to repeat it. I like to keep things fresh. I'll always offer options for all levels in the class. You can spend the entire class in a childs pose or a handstand, you do you!

Dynamic vinyasa, moving the body in creative ways opens us up to a world of possibilities.
If you call dancing around my lounge room fitness then yes, that. I also sometimes lift weights and pull myself up on bars - yogis need pull strength too!
Ghandi - oh the stories he could share! Yogananda - His book changed my practice. Beyonce - for obvious reasons.
I'm singing at the top of my lungs and pretending that life is a musical.
