My yoga journey began 10 years ago. Yoga practice brought me a sense of peace and helped me grow stronger physically and mentally. It became an important part of my life, and a two month trip to India to deepen my study inspired me to transition from student to teacher. A year later I completed the YTT 200 hour course with Mahi Yoga School in Goa, which included training in Hatha, Ashtanga, and Therapeutic Yoga.
I left India to move to Nice, France to live and begin teaching. Inspired through my teaching I felt the desire to study more. So I headed to South America to complete a 100 hour Yoga Therapy course at Yogendra Ashram in Cali, Colombia. This not only included using Yoga therapy through Asana but involved an in depth study of Ayurveda and Chakra therapeutic recommendations and Techniques. Learning how to support students in bringing yoga into their everyday lives, and how to understand a client holistically.
Following my course I spent two months in the Ashram volunteering and going deeper into my spiritual and physical practice, teaching classes to other volunteers. I also discovered a love for AcroYoga and completed a 50 hour AcroYoga Immersion. When I left the Ashram I taught private and public classes to locals and tourists on the coast of Ecuador.
I have a keen interest in alternative therapies and hold an MSc Post-Graduate in Nutrition and Physical Activity which helps complement my knowledge and understanding of the benefits of living a healthy, yogic lifestyle.
Recently I took another trip to India where I completed a 50 hour Yin Yoga and Chinese Meridians TTC, and a level 1 and 2 in Thai Yoga Massage with IMOSHA School of Thai Yoga massage.
I strongly believe the practice of Yoga on and off the mat can offer a deeper understanding of the body and mind.
Yoga has changed my life. As a student and teacher I continue to learn and evolve every day.
