What should students expect from your class?
A dynamic and challenging class for all levels, with a focus on alignment, empowerment and the practical everyday application of yogic philosophy. Through the breath and asana, students learn to connect more deeply with their innate internal strength, peace and wisdom of body and mind.
I took my first yoga class in Australia in 2001. In that class I discovered a sense of calm and balance in my body I had never experienced before. From there, began a lifelong journey into the practice of yoga that would help me connect with my own innate internal strength, peace and wisdom.
Coming from a background in competitive figure skating, I was first inspired by the practice for its all-encompassing nature – it challenged me physically, pointing out areas where I was strong but also indicating areas of weakness and imbalance. Over time, I discovered newfound strength and balance in my body. Old injuries started to heal, and particularly, I found support for my ongoing scoliosis.
AsI moved into a career of professional acting in film and television, my yoga practice became even more foundational. The process of linking breath with movement and the meditation skills I learned helped me become more calm, present and deeply connected while working in the high-pressure environment of a film set.
I completed all my foundational training – 200hr YTT, YHot YTT, Yin YTT – with YYOGA, my home for yoga over the past decade. I love teaching and bringing this practice to people from all walks of life for its potential to truly transform lives.
