Yoga is a way to find yourself and lose yourself all at the very same time.
For me it’s so true, when I move gently on my mat I seem to be able to leave any burden behind, while at the same time start to see clearly how it may have begun in the first place.
The precise pairing of flowing asana with uplifting, relatable philosophy defines my yoga teaching and is what I commit to bringing to each and every class I teach. I know that teaching Yoga is my greatest achievement and privilege in this life. I am constantly reminded of this every Savasana and “see you next time’’ from every student. If students arrive to class with a trapezius full of emotional baggage and an extreme feeling of tension and disconnect, the fact that they can authentically chat to someone as they leave class, with feelings of complete space in their bodies and mind is the ultimate reward. Yoga is the reason behind this transformation and I feel incredibly fortunate to be that instructor to guide students back to what they already know.
Some things you might not know about me: I just got married to a funny fella, a full-time standup comedian. I own and obsess over my little fury baby Schtig the cat and I used to dance professionally overseas in musicals.
