Your course teacher
I'm a certified yoga teacher with more than 5 years of teaching experience, and 13 years of practicing yoga myself.
My motto is 'yoga for all' as I'm committed to making everyone feel welcome and comfortable in my classes.
With a love for a flowing, breath-led style, over the years I've adapted the vinyasa flow style into a format that makes it more inclusive and accessible.
So whatever your yoga experience, age, fitness or mobility I'll be guiding you to find a version of the vinyasa flow practice that feels great for your body.
Remembering it's much less about what the practice looks like on the outside than how it feels on the inside!
My student community comment on how clear and easy to follow my instructions are, as well as my welcoming and encouraging nature.
I'm passionate about creating varied and creative class sequences that help the practice feel seamless in rhythm and meditative in quality.
I look forward to sharing this course with you!
