I have been motivated by yoga and spiritual self-reflection since the late nineties. During a 10 year career in the yachting industry I was able to enjoy a variety of styles with different teachers around the world. In 2007 I finally completed my teacher training with Maria Taylor at the Africa Yoga Centre. This inspired me to continue with my daily Ashtanga practice, which I taught at studios in Cape Town and Mossel Bay, South Africa. During this time I also specialised in antenatal and postnatal yoga classes.
As more and more people approached me with aging restrictions and various ailments, I developed a gentler approach, leading to my Slow Flow classes which incorporate the dynamic, flowing, breath-synchronized elements of Ashtanga for strengthening mind and body. With fewer transitions than Vinyasa yoga and more flow than Hatha yoga, there is time to evaluate how and when a pose should be modified.
My fascination with the human body and growing awareness of the subtle energies in and around the physical body led me to complete my diploma in Thai Yoga Massage in 2012. And my desire to be able to assist those with various ailments, based on sound anatomical and physiological knowledge, led me to complete a Bachelor’s degree in Exercise and Sport Science in 2019. My studies led me to starting Senior’s Yoga classes as part of the Long Live You program, enabling me to put my growing scientific knowledge to practice.
This year sees me including a Vinyasa class which incorporates inspiring music and a dynamic flow aimed at energising and creating vitality.
Passionate about yoga, my primary intention is that each person, through their yoga experience, connects with their true Self, finding contentment, strength and joy. My classes challenge each person individually to explore their own potential.
