I am a Level 1 Yoga teacher and Stretch Therapist practising at Avalon Beach on Sydney's Northern Beaches. I have practiced yoga over 30 years under teachers including Rick Birrell, Carolyn Harris, Iyengar teacher Lynne Styman Lane, Sylviane Gordon, Yolande Hyde, Fabio Fibbri and Jacqui Guiliano to name a few.
I currently teach three early bird classes. On Mondays and Fridays we are at the Avalon Beach Surf Life Saving Club in a fantastic space overlooking the ocean. I supply mats, blocks, blankets and straps and start my classes with a short mindfulness practice with some breath work, before moving into asanas and finishing with relaxation.
On Wednesday my class is at the Avalon Yoga Co-operative. Here we have a great little studio with all equipment plus the added bonus of wall ropes. I like to incorporate these into my classes where possible.
I also teach specific stretch classes which offer an alternative to yoga and the opportunity to take the body deeper into the stretch. These classes are on Sunday mornings and Thursday nights at the Avalon Yoga Co-op.
I currently teach chair and gentle yoga classes at the Narrabeen War Vets and volunteer as a teacher with University of the Third Age. I have also volunteered with Edo Khan's A Sound LIfe which provide yoga to those with dementia and other issues.
