Harnessing mind, body and breath.. into the flow
Yoga teaches inclusive, empowering resources that are essential for mental, physical and spiritual health. Re-connection with our breathing, moving and sounding bodies can restore our archetypal ‘wildness’ and our true feelings. This is what I hope to facilitate as your teacher.
I studied in the Ashtanga Vinyasa tradition for many years, training with great teachers and practising at the Ashtanga Yoga Research Institute in Mysore. A 500-hour teacher-training course with Yogacampus in 2008, challenged and broadened my understanding and practice of yoga, which continues to evolve – through the experimental ‘lab’ of my own body and the joyful art of teaching others.
I encourage playful commitment to getting on the mat and seeing what happens, what’s needed in the moment – and aim to teach these practices in accessible and inclusive ways, so that you can develop a personal practice that fits with your lifestyle. I’ve taught in-person classes for most of the last 20 years but am currently on sabbatical until Spring ’22. I currently offer 1:1 sessions – online and in-person.
One:One (or more) sessions
I teach a flowing, hybrid style of vinyasa yoga in response to the student’s needs and level of ability – from complete beginners to seasoned practitioners. Meditation, breath or voice work can be included.
I work with a diverse range of individuals and quite often with couples who have complicated and differing needs. I offer mentoring to trainee and new teachers.
I’m an experienced teacher trainer and have developed a specialist module – Voice Work for Yoga Teachers, a one or two-day course which fits into a standard teacher training or is available as a stand-alone course. It can also be tailored to fit other groups. Functional voice-work including experiential anatomy, breath-work and toning, interface with creative practice and master classes. There is focus on vocal resources both for teaching and for personal practice.
