My approach to teaching is that yoga can be enjoyed by everyone. In the physical practice of asana, I encourage students to modify the poses for their own bodies, injuries and conditions.
I teach from a fairly anatomical basis as I believe knowledge of how the body works can help improve range of movement, build strength and make the physical practice a more mindful experience.
As we age, yoga can help give us a sense of equilibrium. Feeling positive about how we relate to and move our body can transfer as a positive feeling into our daily lives. Working with breath awareness is an intergral part of my teaching.
My training and certification are in Iyengar yoga which continues to form the basis of my teaching. Using props helps to make poses more accessible and allows us to keep an openness in the body and the breath which can easily be sacrificed by trying to go into a pose too deeply.
I currently teach online classes via zoom and continue to work one-to-one with students, again via zoom.
A further area of interest to me is pelvic floor dysfunction which, I realised through my contact with post-natal and post-menopausal women, is extremely common but rarely openly discussed. In 2019 I became a certified Adore Your Pelvic Floor Coach running 12 week courses educating and improving pelvic floor health.
