Favourite pose?

Surya Namaskar (Salute to the Sun).  Just three rounds is enough to make your day brighter!

Why did you start doing yoga?

To make new friends!  I had just moved to Samoa in the Pacific Islands and a small group of women needed numbers to keep their yoga session going.  I didn’t enjoy it to begin with but peer pressure and the morning tea afterwards kept me there until one day, “ahhhhhh” I relaxed in Savasana and that was it.  The best thing is I’m still making beautiful new friends through yoga.

Why did you become a teacher?

Becoming a teacher has never been a decision but may have been a secret dream.  So I just say yes to the opportunities that come my way and go with the flow – and it’s perfect and I love it and I am excited about where yoga is taking me.

How do you describe your teaching style?

Sometimes we will flow, sometimes we hold and we will surround our practice with the breath.

What has yoga taught you?

That at our core we are all the same, it’s just our stories that make us different.  Breathe and Love.

What do you want students to know?

Start where you are and keep practising.  You don’t need to know how yoga works or why it works just move your body and breath together and
“something will happen”.
