Learn to follow the intuition of the heart instead of the theory of the mind through the practice of yoga, meditation and mindfulness! I’m a RYT200 certified yoga and meditation teacher as well as pre & post natal, kids and teens yoga teacher. My training is based in the traditional lineages of yoga drawing from the healing traditions of the Sri T Krishnamacharya lineage, with a focus on yoga therapy. I’m passionate about guiding my students to explore and reconnect with their bodies, through the connection between breath and movement. As a teacher I’m intuitive and teach a gentle flowing yang practice or yin with a more restorative focus.
Join me for a one-on-one yoga & meditation class to reconnect with your body and the present moment in the privacy of your home or at a park / beach of your choice.
Regardless of where you are at on your yoga path I can help you develop your sadhana [daily practice], which could consist of yoga, meditation and other mindfulness practices. My classes are suited for any level yogi – you can be an absolute beginner or more experienced, or maybe you’re pregnant or have just given birth to your love bundle in which case I would love to support you with pre or post natal yoga classes. I also love working with surfers; yoga and meditation is perfect for building core strength, balance and confidence that is so essential for surfing.

Why practice yoga and meditation?
Yogas chitta vritti nirodha. This is one of the most widely recognised definitions of yoga by Patanjali, and means that yoga is the removing or stilling the fluctuations of the mind.
Yoga is a great form of exercise but it also offers so much more than that – a philosophy of life, a practice that can help heal the body from pain or disease and ultimately a method of quieting the mind, through a system of practices that leads us to mental peace. When the fluctuations of the mind are totally removed, we are at one with everything and all that is, and we naturally become content with existence and the need to chase more ceases.
In today’s fast paced world we often find ourselves feeling run down and empty, digitally connected but never present, always chasing the next deadline but missing out on life that is happening right now. The stresses of the fast paced world have made us disconnected from our bodies, the people around us and the natural world, leading to an array of physical and mental symptoms that we more often cover up by taking quick-fix medications to be able to keep up, instead of connecting to the core of what caused the problem in the first place.
I firmly believe our disconnection from the present moment and the natural world starts with our disconnection from our own bodies – the ancient practice of yoga and meditation / mindfulness can offer a simple yet profound path back to you. Through the practice we learn to tune back into our bodies, connect with our breath, still the mind and connect back to the present moment to experience and appreciate life as the beautiful reality it is, right now.
