Get to know me:
DESCRIBE YOUR UNIQUE VALUE ADD AS A TEACHER. WHAT ABOUT YOUR STYLE MAKES YOU STAND OUT?
For me, yoga is the journey of becoming whole. It is the transformational practice that reminds us of who we are at our core. There is the breath; it guides us inward and enlivens our inner world of hidden potential, of self-love and connection. Our practice is just that, practicing being true, being real and being alive. The practice begins with you and ends with you.
TELL US ABOUT YOUR INTENTION IN BEING A PART OF THE LOCAL COLLECTIVE OF GATHERYOGA?
Being part of the GATHERYOGA COLLECTIVE is a beautiful reminder that we are infinitely connected and that we share the common thread of a heartfelt connection with the world. It is through our unique ablitites to touch others that we join as a collective to create that ripple effect of empowerment, love and joy! I am honoured to be part of this community that opens its arms and heart to all.
WHAT FIRST BROUGHT YOU TO THE MAT?
Transformational work is my first love and yoga became its soulmate. I fell onto the path without knowing that it would become the perfect vehicle to communicate the integration of body, mind, heart, soul and breath. My first yogic experience transported me to a place that I had long before lost contact with- my inner world of emotion, sensation and intuition. From that moment my life would never be the same.
WHAT INSPIRES YOU TO TEACH?
Demystifying and sharing the most empowering and transformational secret - your unique you-ness. Guiding others to embrace their wholeness and reconnect with their heart of hearts. I love seeing people step into their fullest light, and in turn, sharing their light with others.
