I started my yoga practice around fifteen years ago and explored many different methods until I settled on Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga as my primary practice, studying with Radha & Pierre at Yoga Plus in Crete. I completed my teacher training with Joey Miles and Anna Ashby at Tri-Yoga in London in 2011 and since then have continued my studies with some of the world’s most renowned teachers including David Swenson and Radha & Prem Carlisi at the Ashtanga Yoga Research Institute in Bali. In 2011 I travelled to Mysore in India, the source of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga and spent three months studying with Sharath Jois at The Ashtanga Yoga Institute.
My yoga teaching is inspired by a passion for holistic well-being in general and I have spent a number of Summer seasons working as a vegetarian and vegan chef at Yoga Plus in Crete. Last year I completed a raw food chef certification with The Seeds of Life in Bali. I teach ‘Yoga Lifestyle’ workshops that include modules in nutrition as well as yoga, meditation and dance.
My approach to teaching is lighthearted but disciplined. I facilitate a comfortable space to nurture, challenge and inspire those who come to the mat, whatever their reasons. Every time I teach, I learn and consider my students to be my greatest teachers. I want to share the joy that the yoga practice has brought into my own life and I am continually inspired by seeing how each individual develops with the practice.
The benefits of yoga are available to everyone, regardless of age, size, gender or levels of fitness. As the late Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, founder of the Ashtanga Yoga Institute in Mysore said “Practice and all is coming.”
