The making of an insider
As a self-professed ‘retreat addict’, I've been travelling around the world to various yoga and/or fitness retreats for over 12 years. Craving the energy and balance gained from the retreat experience on a more continuous basis, I left my fundraising and marketing gig to become a certified yoga teacher in 2014.
Now I help people feel good and chill out through teaching yoga and meditation, leading retreats, organizing and running wellness workshops.
I still love marketing and fundraising, so I do that for healthcare and wellness organizations and also yoga studios and charities.
Teachers can appear in many different places and at different times throughout your life. For me, a teacher is anyone who helps to guide me towards better self-awareness and learning. So, my philosophy as a yoga teacher is to provide guidance to people so that they can follow their own unique paths. If I am able to assist them with that journey, then I am grateful.
As such, I encourage people to find a yoga and meditation practice that inspires them. I don't believe that there are 'right or wrong' ways to practice or believe rigidly in any one type of yoga teaching or asana practice.
My teaching speciality is vinyasa flow, and my classes incorporate creative movements that strengthen and lengthen the body while staying connected to the breath. I also teach yin and restorative yoga, moving meditation and mindfulness. My classes include gentle hands-on adjustments and assists, inspirational music and a savassana massage. I tailor my classes to the students and pride myself on personalized attention.
My philosophy is to provide the space for each student to connect with their mind, body and soul so they finish class feeling lighter and more grounded.
I encourage students to push themselves to their personal limits, while not taking themselves too seriously.
Helping others connect with themselves, is what helps me to stay grounded and inspired.
"Yoga does not just change the way we see things, it transforms the person who sees." B.K.S. Iyengar
I hope to see you on the mat, on retreat, or on the beach!
Cheers and Namaste,
