Having come from an intense sporting background and grown up with a 'no pain no gain' attitude, I actually didn't enjoy my first yoga class. It wasn't something that I instantly resonated with, it didn't miraculously transform my life and as I lay in my first Savasana I remember willing it to end. BUT, fast forward a few years and here I am: a Yoga Teacher!
I fell in love with yoga when I was living in Bristol. I found an amazing studio, a group of talented, knowledgeable and (most importantly) smiley teachers and before I knew it I was hooked. I realised pretty quickly that yoga could be enjoyable, challenging, and strangely addictive all in one. It was a completely different experience to my first class and, as cliché as it sounds, it really has changed my life.
A little while later I quit my career in marketing and flew to Thailand to do my yoga teacher training. Since then I've taught in Asia, New Zealand and Edinburgh and now here I am in Switzerland.
I make sure my classes are sympathetic to the traditional practice of yoga but I try to infuse them with fun, creativity and playfulness. I focus a lot on alignment and anatomy but in a way that relates to real life and helps you to understand the less tangible spiritual, mental and emotional sides of yoga. These aspects are just as important as the physical movements. Yoga isn't just a work out, it's a work in. Cheesy, but true.
I'd love you to join me for a practice. If you have any questions, you can always message me and I'll be happy to help.
