My yoga journey started with injuries sustained through Military service. My classes are comprised of longer holds, with invitational language to explore what is happening in the students body and mind. I specialise in Yin, Yoga Nidra, and Meditation.
Adjustments/Assists: As the founder of Blind Tiger Yoga, most of my assists will be verbally and via demonstration, only rarely will I physically assist someone, due to the large number of Military, Veterans and First Responders in my classes.
Theming: Anatomy & Physiology, Western & Eastern Science/Medicine, Philosophy, Mindfulness & Humour.
Sequencing: Repetition with variation.
Seeing people of all different body types, various degrees of skeletal variation, physical and mental limitations, finding what works for them, through exploration of their own body and mind.
Observing regular humans practicing the healing arts not just textbook "yogis."
My teachers Paul & Suzee Grilley, Bernie Clark, Jo Phee, Joe Barnett, Marcel Van De Vis, John Vosler, and various authors.
Longer holds, with invitational language to explore what is happening in the students body and mind.
Mindfulness across all disciplines. Why? Because it can be applied in all situations.
BJJ, Strength and conditioning training, free-diving.
Beginners classes. People generally have less ego, they are more open to be with the new experiences and to always have that beginners mind.
