I have been a student of yoga from early childhood and look at yoga as a way of life in addition to twisting and turning the body like a pretzel. I teach Yoga to about 200 students a week. I am a STUDENT OF LIFE attempting to understand the essence of who we are and live the life to the fullest. I believe in ancient eastern wisdom for health, peace, love and Life of using body and mind for well-being. My ability to integrate daily experiences with modern day science and tenets of eastern wisdom distinguish my classes and workshops unique and enriching. I am qualified and certified in Yoga, Chair Yoga, Holistic Counselling, Meditation and Nutrition therapist. See you on the mat!

Being amongst the busy-ness and being under the constant pressure, practising yoga became a vital tool not only to survive but also to thrive in my own skin.

When teaching yoga, I thoroughly enjoy creating an open space for each individual to experience mindful movement and re-connect with their own body. I describe yoga as "making love to yourself", where you are being "One" with your body, your breath, your mind and your spirit. Have you made love to yourself lately?

Although I have practiced yoga for over 12 years, it was when I cleared out from my corporate lifestyle and made time for daily practice that I started to see life with more colour. Yoga has been a key, enabling me to unlock and unfurl the deeper layers, the truth that runs beneath the surface of my ideas and muscle fibres - the essence of who I really am. I am passionate about sharing this experience with anyone who also wants to run a little deeper or seeks respite from their urban life.

I believe that yoga is for EVERYbody, and am passionate about finding ways to create time out of their busy schedules to help people to stop, breathe, connect, step closer to their true self and uncover their limitless potential. I invite you to come and share this practice with me.

 My vision is to use yoga to empower families. I love sharing the gift of yoga and I am lit up by connecting people to their mind, body and breath. I enjoy teaching lots of different styles of yoga such as Vinyasa, Restorative, Prenatal and Children’s Yoga. Morning is my favourite time to practice and I enjoy greeting the day with an energetic Vinyasa. What a beautiful way to start the day - rolling out a mat, opening up, coming alive and then walking out into the day in a state of peace. Restorative yoga is a great way to end the day - finding a state of relaxation while being fully supported. We live in a fast paced world where lot of things are go, go, go. Allowing yourself to be in the space of relaxation can improve sleep and allow time to reflect inwards.
