I found yoga in 2007 where it immediately had a profound effect on my life from that very first class and I knew then that I had started on a lifelong journey of transformation. I developed a new found respect for my body, my mind and my health.

Having been working in the corporate world for a few years, yoga couldn't have come at a better time as I seriously needed some skills for de-stressing and fine tuning my focus in the fast paced office life! Yoga gave me these skills and so much more that naturally the call to teach began knocking on my door and I finally took the plunge and completed a 6 month teacher training course with Jacqueline Ivory and Syed Ali at Jai Yoga.

Ashtanga Yoga is my passion complemented by a regular Vinyasa Flow practice which allows me to enjoy both the disciplined and adventurous aspects of both methods. It is important to me to always remain a student, continuously learning, so that I can share my experiences with my students.

I have attended various workshops with both local and international teachers such as Jim Harrington, Jacqueline Ivory, Michael Gannon, Michael Hamilton and Noah Maze and continue to remain inspired and humbled by my teachers.

In July 2013 I completed a 2 week (108 hour) Ashtanga Course with Kino MacGregor and Tim Feldmann at Miami Life Center. In 2015 I further studied with Kino and Tim and completed their 200 Hour Ashtanga Intensive which has further deepened my love and commitment to the Ashtanga practice and sharing it with others.

You can currently find me teaching at Virgin Active (Century City and Gardens), Zone Fitness (Gardens) and Yo Yoga (Claremont).
