Why did you start with yoga?
I started yoga to complement my dance practice. (Strala) yoga opened me up to a whole new world of movement. Free of rigidity and tension, healthy for body and mind, natural movement that feels incredibly liberating! The freedom, peace and joy yoga brought – and brings – me is amazing!

Why did you become a yoga teacher?
Actually, the first yoga training I did was mostly to deepen my personal practice. I wanted to know more about why moving, breathing and mindful awareness could have such a profound effect on me. It wasn’t until I taught a few classes during my studies that it clicked. Guiding yoga classes feels amazing, fun, rewarding and oh! I love it every day! No regrets.

What do you love most about teaching yoga?
The energy. The transformation. The connection. Being in the experience together. Seeing people get comfortable in their own body as they let go of tension and move more freely with ease, that brings joy and lightness that you can feel and see! Free facelift effect 😊

What styles of yoga do you teach?
Vinyasa, Bondi60, Meditation, Bondi Surf and Prenatal Yoga.

Can you describe your personal teaching style in a few words? 
Depending on the class; energising, uplifting, or calming. Connecting breath, body, and movement in a gentle flow, supported by feel-good music. Natural movement, ease and some fun!
