A little about me...
I have been teaching yoga since late 2013, having initially been drawn to yoga for medical reasons (as a result of experiencing spinal injuries and nerve damage and Joint Hyper-mobility Syndrome, both of which can manifest with chronic pain). I then embarked upon an amazing self-healing journey which has blown my mind and heart wide open and continues to fill my life with gratitude and wonder.
In 2010, I started to study and practice yoga under the guidance of Steve Harrison at the Yoga Sanctuary, Southampton, UK, and it has simply transformed my life. I completed my 200 hour yoga teacher training programme over a period of 18 months there, graduating in 2014 and then studied a further 18 months of a yoga deepening programme. Over 6 years, I studied a number of yoga, meditation, scripture and philosophy courses and discovered a profound love for mantra and music, kirtan there.
I moved to Austria in July 2016, though I remain remotely connected to the Yoga Sanctuary and practice online almost daily with Steve and the sangha. My inspiration stems from all that I learned there, and continue to learn. I also draw on guidance and inspiration from many other philosophical and spiritual teachers through their books and videos, through people I meet and through my self study.
Mother Nature is one of my greatest teachers. In my spare time, I love to get out into the mountains, to hike and in winter, to ski. I enjoy spending time forest bathing, barefoot walking, toe dipping and swimming in cold lakes and rivers. I also enjoy cycling, gardening and I love to sing, make music and dance.
