One day I went to a hot yoga class and almost died... but I kept coming back, so here we are!

In Yin classes, I let you be in silence. In Flow, I like breaking things down, bit workshoppy, because I believe it's important to get the basics right and have a sustainable - safe - effective practice.

I'm quite bossy, but I balance it out with jokes so you forget that you've been in that plank for a while!

Teaching & Certification

  • Power Living 200hr

Teaching Style

  • Adjustments/Assists:
    YAS! I believe in hands-on adjustments
  • Theming:
    No set themes, but I will sprinkle food for thought and life lessons throughout the whole class.
  • Sequencing:
    I don't normally come in with a set sequence - but we will always start and end the class in the same way. Normally, I would check in to see if anyone wants to work or focus on a particular pose or part of a body. I also try to sense the energy levels, as well as check in with injuries and pregnancies.
  • Music:
    No lyrics. Yin is quite ethereal and chilled out vibes for Flow.

I will always have my eyes on you and remember your name. It will be tough, but I got you and more importantly, you will learn in the end that you got you!
