I have been practicing yoga for many years in various styles. When I first started I thought that yoga was just about perfecting a pose. That was until I met an Anusara yoga teacher Bridget who inspired me to practice yoga in a different way – now I connect with my body and be able to listen to it. I love doing yoga. It is the moment I spend quality time with myself. It is also the way I express myself through this physical body.
After my teacher training, I realized yoga is not about the poses. It is about the relationship with our own body. It is placing our body into a proper alignment with the breath, observing our inner body, mind and energy what is happening right now right here and accepting it. As a result, you will find inner peace and freedom of the body.
Combining all the knowledge of the practice of yoga, I teach from my heart following the 5 Universal Principles. I create a theme which inspires me in life. Themes have the potential to take you to the very heart of the yoga practice, allowing us to reflect inside and see ourselves more fully. These can touch our heart, even long after we leave our mats. Then, you will gradually build up your strength, flexibility and awareness. This is one of the ways to ‘knowing’ your body, mind and spirit.
I currently teach small groups in the Beckenham and West Wickham areas and can also provide one-to-one, couple yoga and private small group yoga.
