I am currently studying the Graduate Certificate of Yoga Therapy with Nikola Ellis at Adore Yoga, Sydney
I teach yoga with a classical approach, following in the tradition of T. Krishnamacharya, with gentle, mindful and breath-centred practices, in a non-competitive and friendly environment. Working with small groups and individuals allows me to help each student get the most out of their practice. Flowing movements and postures, along with breathing techniques and relaxation, help to calm the mind, build strength, increase flexibility and improve overall wellbeing.
I first started taking yoga classes twenty five years ago to ease chronic back pain. I continued to practice yoga to improve my general fitness, whilst I was working in the beauty and wellness industry as a spa and remedial massage therapist, and then later as a college educator. Over the years, my passion for teaching anatomy and physiology and the inner workings of the body led me to deepen my interest in the energetics and philosophy of yoga. I completed the Diploma of Yoga Studies & Teacher Training (500hrs) at The Yoga Institute in 2016. I now enjoy offering small group classes and courses and working with individual clients. I also run specifically tailored courses for seniors and clients with injuries and illness. I am continuing my professional development through the study of Yoga Therapy, focusing on specific mental and physical conditions.
After my diagnosis with Osteoporosis ten years ago, I have developed a particular interest in Yoga for bone health. My personal practice is helps me keep my body strong, improve my balance and work with bone-strengthening movement and poses.
I look forward to sharing my passion for Yoga with you!
