The ancient science of Yoga captured my imagination while I was living and working as a lawyer in the United Kingdom. My interest in and love for the tropics and the diversity and nature of Asia to which I was exposed during early childhood, were factors which propelled me to gradually immerse myself in the practice, study and teaching of Yoga, well-being and meditation, and to settle down in Sri Lanka. I offer lessons with / at the BC Lifestyle Salon (British Cosmetics) and yoga programs and retreats with Eco Team / Experiental Journeys and Beyond Boundaries at various locations in Sri Lanka.
Having completed two 200 hr. Yoga Teacher Trainings with the eminent teachers at Blooming Lotus Yoga and retreats and trainings in Sri Lanka and India (on line), these days both theory and practice combine to become part of my day to day life as a practicing Yoga Teacher and Lawyer.
My overarching intention is through teaching Yoga compassionately and with grace, to share my approach to spiritual awakening - and perhaps to different ways of living, or transformation.
During my classes I will welcome you to the journey of ‘Being’, the essence of Yoga and invite you to listen to your inner voice and intuition, which is your supreme teacher. From the heart, the place of stillness, balance, openness and love, I am humbled to share my growing knowledge and experience, to support students in their journey into the inner heart of Yoga.
Part of my predominantly Hatha – infused practice and teachings are meditation and mantra’s. A mantra is a sound vibration that has the ability to both protect and expand the mind. When we consciously begin to use a mantra, we are generating a new vibration and allowing it to penetrate deeply into our energy field where it can heal and strengthen our aura. I also teach Yin Yoga and Restorative yoga classes.
During my courses and classes, I emphasize the highly practical philosophy of Yoga, awakening our innermost potential, to a path which allows for different and loving perspectives, free from attachments.
