...continuously seeking the fabulous flow
I didn’t start out as a professional Yoga Teacher.
Yet, I was definitely born motivated to express myself and interpret the world through physical action and movement. My nan said, I had ants in my pants!
Once upon a time I was a swimming and lifesaving instructor, an aerobics and circuit trainer. I trained, toured and taught as a professional dancer, for almost 2 decades. I went to yoga as a young dancer, looking to improve flexibility. I came out with newly found strength, stability and a surprise bonus. Tiny, residual, magical moments, of mental clarity and inner peace. I began to learn how to relax, and the insomniac child-adult I was, finally began to sleep.
My deep soul-felt connection to 'something else' via the path of yoga was found!
In my sessions I prepare you with clear, precise, strong foundations. Encourage you to ‘work with what you've got’. Guide you to feel your way into safe movement, safe postures, find expansion, space, and a little more physical freedom in your body, peace in your heart and mind. You will be challenged, definitely. You'll also get to rest, recover, laugh and smile. Mostly I want you to feel great about yourself, find your fabulous flow!
I use my experiential understanding of biomechanics, and movement reading skills to bring out the best in students. Giving examples to imagine, corrections that work and the confidence to fall or fly.
Alongside formal training my continuing professional development, includes, quite literally, thousands of hours of training and countless workshops with masters of movement, yoga, dance and healing. Some of the absolute finest in their fields, including teachers who have devoted their lives to dance and movement techniques and International teachers of Yoga. Healing therapies such as Shiatsu, holistic movement therapies including Feldenkrais, Franklin Method, Releasing Techniques, Pilates and Postural alignment Professional Development.
The yoga classes I teach are generally Vinyasa Flow, a kind of moving meditation, linking movement/poses with breath. I've learned and practiced Iyengar, Dynamic, Vinyasa Flow and Sivananda Yoga methods. Drawing inspiration from my personal practice and the teachings I receive, deeply and continuously informs my teaching.
I warmly invite you to start or rejoin your yoga journey with me, at Yoga Worcester Park!
