I am passionate about sharing my love of yoga. Being a busy Mum of three and business owner, I have found that yoga has provided an excellent outlet for finding balance in an increasing hectic world. In 2014 I completed Ashram Yoga’s 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training. I teach in a holistic way which encompasses the deeper, more subtle aspects of yoga.. While emphasising the physical body, I also specifically work with the breath, the life-energy and the mind. This helps bring about a balanced state of wellbeing, vitality and a deeper connection with our true inner-selves.
This year I continued my yoga learning journey and completed Yin Yoga Therapy’s Level 1 and Level 2 Teacher Training (100 hours). Yin Yoga is a meditative practice consisting of long held stretches, focusing on the deeper tissues of our body – the fascia (connective tissue) - strengthening, stretching and stimulating to encourage more flexibility and freedom of movement while simultaneously releasing deep tension of the body and relaxing the nervous system.
