I first explored yoga when living and studying in Melbourne and while it wasn't exactly love at first Downward Dog, I was definitely intrigued. It wasn't until I was travelling overseas and living in London that I really fell in love with the practice. By the time I was back on home soil I was well and truly hooked and thirsty to try as many different styles and teachers as I could.
I love to teach a nurturing and grounding practice where people have permission to explore the movements intuitively in their own body to find what best serves them.
Adjustments/Assists: When necessary and usually with just a gentle touch to guide.
Theming: I love to theme my classes with yoga philosophy and i'm guided by whatever inspiration comes my way. That said gratitude and heart opening is a feature in almost all of my classes.
Sequencing: In Flow classes, I like to open the body slowly and gently, then build some heat before grounding down towards the end of class.
I feel as though sharing yoga is a gift, seeing people leave class more grounded, calm and in touch with themselves than when they came in is an absolute blessing.
My practice evolves and changes with the stages in my life. Lately I've been practicing more yin, slow flow and meditation as it seems to balance the pace of life with my little one.
I've had many inspiring teachers, but lately a lot of my inspiration is coming from reading Donna Farhi's book Bringing Yoga to Life and using the inspiration in its pages to guide my practice.
A nurturing and grounding practice designed to help you move intuitively and open the body gently and kindly.
Seeing people leave class more grounded, calm and in touch with themselves than when they came in is an absolute blessing.
At the moment Mellow Slow Flow feels especially lovely to teach, it's earthy, deep and fluid. I can't get enough!
Mainly yoga, although I'm often seen walking the streets of Ocean Grove with my daughter and our pup Rumble.
Always by the ocean, I'm never far from it!
I'm on my mat.
