I believe anyone can do yoga. It’s just a matter of finding the right teacher and class for you.
Not all classes and styles of yoga are appropriate for everyone, especially if you have a health concern or an injury, or are new to yoga. Make sure you find the best fit for you.
If you are in doubt, perhaps start with a couple of yoga therapy sessions with me, to support your move into general yoga classes knowing how to adapt and modify practices for yourself.
I try to make my classes as accessible as possible. They are the opportunity to safely explore foundational level postures to help develop strength and flexibility, and cultivate ease and freedom of movement. I aim to teach students the alignment of the poses and how to adapt them to their own unique bodies. I also love to share my knowledge of the potential benefits of practices for body and mind.
I aim to teach yoga rather than guide it so students learn practices they can take away and use in their own lives.
Central to my approach is practising yoga postures to optimise breathing for physical, mental and emotional wellbeing.
I have been practising yoga for over 25 years and have studied many different styles and traditions of yoga. My experience is reflected in an eclectic style of teaching that focuses on alignment, ease of movement and meditative awareness.
I undertook teacher training with Yogacampus and qualified in 2005. I am much inspired by Tias Little’s approach to yoga and continue to train with him.
Booking of classes is through the websites of Triyoga and the Life Centre.
