I was introduced to yoga at the age of four. My parents were disciples of an Indian guru called Osho, and from a young age I joined in on meditations, listened to discourses and I was brought up within the Indian yogic philosophies of meditation and mindfulness.

I took my first yoga class in my early 20’s and fell in love with Ashtanga and vinyasa flow awhile after.

I continued to delve deeper into yoga, and in 2013 I began my own self- practice, which was the catalyst for change in my life.

In late 2014 I attended a Naam Yoga Master Class with Dr Joseph Michael Levry, which had profound healing effects, and I soon realised that I wanted to share yoga with others.

Knowing first-hand the transformational effects of yoga, my passion and desire to share it with others led me to India, the birthplace of yoga, where I completed my 200-hour Ashtanga and Vinyasa Flow Yoga Teaching Certification.

I later moved to Nepal where I immersed myself into a Hindu culture while living with a Nepalese family and I received regular one-on-one teachings from Nepal’s first certified yoga master from the Satyananda lineage.

In 2016 I was invited to return to India, where I received a further 100 hours Yoga Alliance Certified training. I worked in two yoga teacher training schools, as assistant teacher and demonstrator in anatomy, alignment and technical workshops, teaching alignment and adjustments, giving adjustments in the Mysore classes, conducting talks on yoga lifestyle for the 200hr teacher trainees and teaching daily vinyasa flow classes.

Fusing what I have learnt from all my teachers both in India and Nepal, I wish to impart on my students the essence of yoga, which is much more than a physical workout.

My classes are a unique blend of Satyananda and Ashtanga, fused together in an intelligently sequenced slow Vinyasa Flow that encompasses a specific series of joint warm ups to activate and remove blockages in one’s flow of prana (life force) in order to prepare the subtle and physical body for asanas ( yoga postures), Pranayama (breath control techniques) and Savasana (relaxation).

My Guriji taught me that everything is always OM, therefore my classes have a strong spiritual focus that are designed to bring you to the core of your being, along with integrating the flow of breath with movement and correct alignment.
