People have practiced yoga for a very long time. The people practicing have changed. The practices themselves have changed. But the purpose of the practice somehow remains – the cultivation of self-awareness.
Today many of us practice yoga as a combination of breathing, asana (physical postures) and meditation. We practice to increase flexibility, mobility and strength, to find techniques to manage tension or stress, to find a quiet space, to become present.
How I teach
My intention for every class I teach is to leave us all feeling better at the end than we did at the beginning – more grounded but a little lighter in step. I teach asana with a focus on healthy alignment principles, integrating movement with the natural pace of the breath to encourage and gently challenge the body’s own strength, steadiness and ease to be revealed. My approach is non-dogmatic and I hold a cheery and supportive space for all to practice.
A practitioner for over 15 years, I completed my teacher training with Anna Ashby and Joey Miles at triyoga London. In 2013 I completed a restorative yoga teacher training at triyoga with Anna Ashby and Chris Swain.
I am the Teacher Training Manager at triyoga. More information about triyoga teacher trainings is available on the triyoga website.
