Yoga gives me, me.
When and where did you do your first Teacher Training?
Qi Health & Yoga – still to this day the most rounded, balanced and enriching course available.
Svarga Dvijasana (Bird of Paradise pose). Right at the very end of moving into pose, I feel an expansion of pranic energy – my hips open, my legs extend and my heart centre lifts and opens
Least favourite pose?
I honestly don’t have one
If you could study with any teacher, who would it be and why?
Krishnamacharya – to be immersed in his blended focus of breath, prana, mental focus, right knowledge and asana
Best in-class blooper?
(In Paschimottanasana) pull your buttocks out from underneath you, yoga is probably the only place you will do this…….or maybe not (noooooo did I just say that???!!)

Where would be your ultimate Yoga retreat destination?
Right now it would be the mountains, blending with their humbling, grounding, divine, expansive energy and breathing in the crisp, clean, saturating, prana rejuvenating air

Seeing the lightness, peace and bliss on everyone’s faces at the end of practice

False self-perceptions, defences and fears – still more to go!

Every time I teach I gain connection, balance and perspective
If you could talk to your pre-yoga self, what would you tell her?
Trust. Trust that peace will come, healing will occur and lightness will slowly return.

Playing with Rocket (little shit-zu x poodle), studying nutritional medicine (I’m thriving learning about nutrition and health), meditation (the foundation of my life), cooking scrumptious food and bringing a smile and laughter to my partners face
