I found yoga, or yoga found me, when I was about 15 years old. It has been a rollercoaster ride ever since, going from compulsive and over-competitive ashtanga yoga to doing different styles all over the world: vinyasa in Hong Kong, hot yoga in New York, trying about 10 different studios and styles in Melbourne, and eventually learning how to ease into yin-yoga poses which I used to hate so much.
After thinking about it for a few years, I got an amazing opportunity to become a certified yoga teacher. I did a 200 hour training of Baptiste Power Yoga in Muskoka, Ontario, and though it was more mentally than physically challenging, I loved it!
The 3 key pillars of yoga for me are asana, meditation, and self inquiry. Combining these aspects, the practice and lifestyle is vigorous, mindful and non-reactive. I want to be able to share what I've learned through my personal practice, trainings as well as ongoing self inquiry, and to inspire people to live their lives to their utmost potential.
As someone with a passion for an active lifestyle, I want to incorporate the practise of yoga to work in conjunction with sports such as surfing and high-intensity interval training. I teach at retreats around the world, where I tailor the sequences to suit each student's individual needs.
