In 2014, I completed my initial yoga teacher training in Ashtanga Vinyasa RYT 200 at Centered Yoga, Samahita, Thailand. I am certified by Yoga Alliance RYT 500 and as my practice evolved, incorporating a number of movement influences, I returned to Samahita each year, completing their 1100 hour training. I regularly attend continued professional development in philosophy, anatomy, fascial integration, movement including alignment and somatic practices, pranayama and meditation.
My teaching has been influenced by Paul Dallaghan, a senior student of Sri Tiwari, one of the last remaining classical yogis teaching traditional and classical pranayama, Arielle Nash, Francesca Cervero and Jade Wood.
It’s tempting to enthusiastically launch into sharing the new insights, techniques and revelations but I love first integrating the teachings again and again into my own practice, working towards an intelligent understanding from the inside out before sharing from a place of integrity and experience.
In 2020, I became a certified Integral Facilitator through Ten Directions Integral Facilitation Progam led by Diane Musho Hamilton, a master facilitator, mediator and Zen Roshi. The training has had a profound effect on the way I connect to the world around me and approach my work and life.
I’m constantly inspired to keep learning, to question, refine, adapt and grow in order to guide and support others through teaching, coaching and mentoring to find a deeper connection to themselves through yoga, mindfulness and self-care.
