I began my journey into yoga in response to a simple inner calling and a gentle direction to the practice. Previously practicing a number of different styles, I immediately appreciated the ability to connect the mind, body and spirit in the strong, elegant and graceful sequences of movement that are inherent within Himalayan Hatha Yoga.
After completing my yoga teacher training with Yogi Ashokananda in London, I completed my meditation teacher training on the 100 hour Foundation Course with Yogi, seeing a perfect compliment in both practices.
For me, the practice and application of yoga as a complete science extends far beyond the boundaries of our mats or the studio in which we may practice; with a curious mind, open heart and a strength to bravely face all aspects of oneself with acceptance and compassion, yoga can provide a firm set of principles and guidelines for the adventurous-spirited practitioner to fully aligned oneself with oneself and to live one's own swadharma fearlessly.
I am currently travelling as a pilgrim across Europe and Asia where I am teaching whenever I am presented with the opportunity. To share the practice of the physical asanas is a great privilege and I try to bring a sense of strength and dynamism to my taught classes and workshops, focusing on the efficient use of the breath, the optimal alignment of the individual body and the use of the inherent strength and wisdom that we all possess.
