I have been a student of Ashtanga yoga since travelling through India in the year 2000. My primary influence and teacher is certified Ashtanga yoga teacher Eileen Hall who made over 20 trips to India to study with the late Sri K Pattabhi Jois.
Eileen ignited a passion for yoga in me which still brings me to my mat each day.
I have been blessed to have Fiona Pullen (Authorised level 2 Ashtanga teacher) as a full time mentor for 3 years. Fiona generously gave me a rare and unique opportunity to apprentice at her school Ashtanga Yoga Space.
I have assisted Eileen Hall at Ashtanga YogaMoves in Sydney and also on retreat in Bali.
I practice with senior teachers regularly and travel to attend retreats annually.
Over the past 16 years I have practiced with: Sharath Jois in India and in Sydney twice. Also, Manju Jois, Deena Kingsberg, Richard Freeman, David Swenson, Petri Raisanen, Mark Robberds and Deepika Mehta.
I continue to be inspired by Eileen Hall's dedication to her practice and her service to the yoga community for over 30 years.
I have a deep respect for Fiona Pullen, Deena Kingsberg and all of the Ashtanga Women around the world who raise children, have families and careers and also maintain a long term practice and love of yoga.
