I have been teaching since 2004, and attending classes myself for over 20 years. I first started doing yoga regularly and for many years as a teenager. My training took place in beautiful Ubud, Bali with the wonderful teachers of Yoga Arts.
I then went on to teach for several years in London, covering a broad range of various styles of yoga and pilates to all levels and age groups. My career as a teacher started out in gyms and health clubs and then progressed to eventually teaching classes and courses at world renowned studios such as Triyoga in all their locations across London, Evolve Wellness Centre in South Kensington, Jiva Health in Wimbledon and many more studios, health clubs, workplaces and even high schools.
My classes are structured to meet the needs of all students from beginners through to advanced. I incorporate music, dynamic or restorative sequencing, depending on the class style, core stability, correct alignment and use of breath.
As well as teaching yoga and pilates in England and Australia, I have also lived and taught yoga in Hong Kong and ran yoga retreats in Turkey and Egypt. Not long after my relocation to Perth I was invited by Lululemon to represent the brand and yoga as an ambassador for 2yrs. I am now happy and content to be here in Perth, managing and teaching in my own studio Sun Moon Yoga which has now been open for 3yrs.
I began my yoga journey 21 years ago to help ward off injuries from martial arts competitive sports and soon became hooked, committing to a daily practice and it eventually took priority over my other sports. I found a wonderful sense of peace and wellbeing with yoga that has stayed with me ever since. I travelled throughout Australia and overseas to seek out workshops, retreats with many wonderful teachers.
However, a desire to explore the history and philosophy of yoga and to deepen my knowledge, lead me to consider teacher training and after much research, I began my Teacher Training with GYA (Greenwood Yoga Academy’s) Advanced Diploma of Holistic Classical Yoga Practices, covering all aspects of Yoga and Yoga Therapy.
I practise many forms of yoga, enjoying the different aspects of various lineages, from Ashtanga, Hatha, Kundalini, Kriya to Power Vinyasa but found I got most benefit and a good understanding of importance of correct alignment practising Iyengar Yoga, a style I stayed with for many years. These days I lean towards a vinyasa flow style in my daily practice and currently teach Vinyasa Flow (Slow Flow, Core and Dynamic), Yin, and Yin Yang.
Yoga has brought joy and peace to my life, seeing me through the ups and downs of life and I have never lost my love of this wonderful gift. I enjoy sharing that with others through teaching and practice.
I began my love of yoga as a teenager, practicing various styles over the last 20 years. I qualified as a Hatha Vinyasa Yoga Teacher in 2017. I have taught chair yoga, Yin/Yang, Children’s Yoga, Pre & Post Natal and Vinyasa classes.
As a qualified senior School Teacher, I also have an interest in Children’s Yoga, particularly incorporating Yoga into my work with teens and anxiety. I have recently finished studying the Mindful Birth Course on Pre + post natal yoga and yoga for active birth and have completed the Kidding Around Yoga for Children course held at Sun Moon Yoga in July 2017. I love to create dynamic and nurturing Vinyasa sequences encouraging my students to explore their mind, body and spirituality with curiosity and wonder.
