(Yoga Alliance Certified)
I have been practising yoga for around 20 years and teaching for just over 3.
My original teacher training was with the Classical Yoga School (CYS) in Perth, where I gained a 200 hour RYS certificate in Hatha Raja Yoga. Mainly concentrating on the principles and teachings of Ashtanga Yoga.
Since then, I have gained a further 200 hour RYS certificate in Yin and Therapeutic Yoga and completed a 5 day intensive CET in Forrest Inspired Yoga as well as CPD workshops in Vinyasa, Functional Flow and various forms of complimentary massage. All of these disciplines inspire my teaching styles today.
Due to the fact I teach a lot of sports yoga, I often deal with people who have injuries and specific areas they are looking to target, so my anatomy knowledge has been furthered with CPD weekends with Leslie Kaminoff, David Keil and Chris Kummer as well as a 10 month anatomy course with Gary Carter.
I love to be a student as well as a teacher, attending as many classes as I can, combined with a self practise. There is always so much to learn from others and yourself. When I’m not on my yoga mat, you might find me cycling up a mountain in Spain, clambering up a wall at Alien Rock, sweating it out on the spin bike or walking my two rescue dogs. As I am generally active, I have a great interest in teaching yoga to people who do sports as I believe that yoga is a really good complimentary practise for every activity that puts pressure on the muscles, fascia and joints.
My classes are generally a mix of yoga styles dependent on the class, but they will involve active stretching and functional movement to gain both strength and flexibility. This is why my favourite style of class is Yin Yang as it is the perfect way to find balance and longevity in both your yoga practise and every day life. I also love teaching beginners as I really find it is so important to start from the basics and build a strong foundation in your practise.
