Favourite pose?

A supported bridge (bridge with a block under the hips). Such a juicy and restorative release for the front of the hips and lower back, and it’s great for everyone, those who are often sitting for long periods and also for those who are really active!

Why did you start doing yoga?

I was always curious about yoga, then I wound up in a class one day and never looked back. For me, it was all about creating a balanced and integrated mind, body and spirit.

Why did you become a teacher?

I was in my early twenties at the time, I had just come back from Southeast Asia and had not done any real study yet, yoga or otherwise. I wanted to completely immerse myself in learning something and I figured Yoga is an excellent foundation for life! Once I started and committed to a regular practice, I had a revelation and realised “oh I get it…this will be part of my life forever!”

How do you describe your teaching style?

I aim to draw out the light in students, helping them to understand their practice and expand into their own self-realized personal power. I like using a progression through the postures to modify and vary the practitioner’s experience and create growth. To me, a great teacher is able to intelligently guide and transform the practice of inexperienced student into that of a knowledgeable practitioner.

What has yoga taught you?

Yoga has taught me to trust in the process and go with the flow.

What do you want students to know?

Even if fear is there don’t let it limit you, failing is part of it. Stay true to your heart, let joy and humour be part of the process.
