I have been teaching Yoga for over twenty years. I completed my yoga teacher training at The Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Dhanwantari Ashram in Kerala, Southern India. I have also practiced Iyengar, Bikram, Yin Yoga, Vinyasa Flow and Ashtanga Yoga. I have studied with and been greatly influenced by some exceptional teachers, notably Roger Newton, Shiva Rea, Sarah Powers, Bernie Clark, Paul Grilley and Sri Dharma Mittra.
Over the years I have incorporated aspects of all the major disciplines and of the ancient yogic teachings and traditions to create a unique class, which I hope, will prompt students to look far beyond the physical dimension of yoga.
Although the practice is fairly strenuous, I have taught students of all ages and ability over the years and I am confident that people can achieve more than they ever dreamed possible in yoga.
I want my students to attend their classes with the intention of
transcending the limited ideas they have of themselves, their practice and their communities. I believe in the power of practicing in a collective frequency where students can feel encouraged and supported by the other practitioners around them. I have witnessed the abundant physical benefits of yoga both in myself and in all my students, but it is my dream that the yogis I teach will ultimately absorb yoga on a much deeper and more profound level.
The emphasis of my teaching is to encourage students to move away from the “arbitrary standard” in modern yoga and the aesthetic questions such as “who is the best at yoga”. I believe that a more profitable and less dogmatic approach is to explore what the practice feels like and not just what it looks like.
“We all have limitless potential to access spiritual data through our meditation and yoga practice. To experience our realities beyond the five limited apertures of the senses. An opportunity and possibility to explore our own human architecture and to understand our anatomical uniqueness. To deepen our awareness of our “essence selves” and become more in tune with the living matrix of intricate pathways which intersect through our bodies”
“Don’t draw a boundary around yourself. – You are a spark of the infinite”
