I first came to yoga for the physical benefits hoping to improve fitness and flexibility. As I became stronger and healthier, I soon discovered that my yoga mat was a place to find a sense of contentment, self-awareness, and mind body connection. When I decided to enrol in teacher training, I only hoped to deepen my own practice. However, the more I learned, the more my intention turned to teaching and sharing the practice with others.
The word yoga means union – the union of body, mind, spirit, breath, and environment. It forms an all-inclusive and comprehensive worldview. Flexibility and fitness come as by-products of yoga, not as requirements. With regular practice you will notice a significant improvement in your strength and balance.
I teach the following class styles. These can be taught individually or as part of a group:
great if you are new to yoga
slower pace, gentle and light movements. Practice can be tailored to incorporate more challenging poses
Strong, dynamic practice with modifications provided based on student experience
Slow pace, calming style mostly floor based. Great for connective tissues
As a teacher, I realise that yoga is not a “one size fits all” practice, and that every person is on a different path. I find immense joy, satisfaction, and inspiration in seeing students discover their own personal yoga journey and I hope to nurture and encourage them along their way.

I am a yoga and mindfulness teacher but, first and foremost, a devoted mindfulness practitioner. I am learning, discovering, and deepening my understanding every day. I have lived experience with mental health and young male suicide. As such I found mindfulness through my own experiences, studies, and practice.
What initially began as a stress management exercise has now become the mainstay of my daily life. Over the years I have cultivated my own personal practice by establishing a daily mindfulness practice and participating in mindfulness trainings.
