  • Experience

    I started practising yoga regularly in 2012. In 2015, while working as an Activewear Representative, the opportunity to help the studio with some reception and admin came up. Both practising at and working for the studio ignited my passion for the practice so, in March 2017, I completed my 200HR Teacher Training and, a couple of months after my graduation, started teaching.

    In 2019, I completed a certificate in Yoga Massage with the intention to deepen my understanding of anatomy, breathwork, energy systems, chakras, meridians and a more metaphysical understanding of the body. I also attended a day-workshop on Pregnancy Yoga in order to be able to more confidently welcome expecting ladies in my classes. In 2020 (just before the pandemic hit!), I completed my Yin Yoga & Mindfulness Teacher Training and a certificate in Yoga for Mental Health which is a topic I am very passionate about and intend to keep sharing the techniques I learned in my classes. In 2021, I decided to sign up for a couple of courses on topics I’m deeply interested in – Ayurveda (traditional Indian medicine) and Pregnancy Yoga. Those studies are ongoing and I look forward to sharing all the new skills and knowledge with my students.

    I’m currently teaching groups (studio and gym), corporate, private and online classes, and I also offer a Yoga Foundation Series where I lead students through a 6-week course on the basics of philosophy, pranayama and asana.

    Students coming to my classes can expect a slow but strong practice, focusing on the connection of breath and movement and always inspired by a physical and philosophical theme/intention. I keep my personal practice daily and engage in ongoing learning with my senior teachers, plus attend workshops of my interest to keep expanding my knowledge. My next goal is to run my first B- Yoga Retreat.

  • Philosophy

    Yoga is much more than a class/physical exercise. It is a practice that helps us shift the attention from the mind to the body, from thinking to feeling. Each time we show up on the mat, we create the space for strength, flexibility and balance – not just in the body, but in our minds and hearts. The connection body and breath brings us back to the present moment, and the more we learn how to find our centre on the mat, the more we can take that lesson and skill to life. Yoga is not just something I practice anymore. Yoga is how I live! It brought out a side of me – a more present, intuitive, creative – which was always overpowered by the anxious, methodical one. And I’m so honoured I get to share my journey and support my students through theirs.
