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 Bridget, an Anusara yoga, who inspired me to practice yoga in a different way – now I connect with my body and am able to and willing to listen to it. I love to practice yoga. It is when 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 and accepting what is happening right now right here. As a result, we will find inner peace and freedom of the body.
Combining all my knowledge from practicing yoga I teach from my heart. I create a theme which inspires me in life in my classes. Themes have the potential to go to the very heart of a yoga practice, allowing us to reflect inside and see ourselves more fully. They can touch the heart long after we leave our mats. Then, we will increase our strength, flexibility and awareness. This is one of the ways to ‘knowing’ our body, mind and spirit.
I currently teach in the Beckenham and West Wickham areas and can also provide private classes for one-to-one, yoga for couple or for small groups.
