HOW IT ALL HAPPENED
My journey in yoga began with the combined interests of developing a healthy body, but also a healthy mind. This interest developed from a young age, spanning across a multitude of disciplines including; rock climbing, gymnastics, calisthenics, mixed martial arts, meditation and music. Initially, these activities were practiced individually, but I then found my true passion in the study and practice of Yoga as a lifestyle - both on and off the mat. Having studied Yoga for Six Years, I qualified as a Yoga teacher at the Marianne Wells Yoga School (Yoga Alliance), training in Costa Rica. It was here that I decided to dedicate my life to teaching and sharing the life changing practice that I experienced.I believe that Yoga is for anyone and everyone, and that it will be beneficial regardless of a students current ability or their aspirations. I believe Yoga is a continuous journey of self study and practice
When I teach, I always ensure that there is a safe environment to practice, where anyone and everyone will feel welcome, happy and comfortable. I offer guidance, adjustments and alternative postures to students (when appropriate) so that regardless of their ability, each individual will be able to reach their full potential within each and every class. My personal practice is derived from traditional teachings in Hatha, Iyengar, and Ashtanga. I choose elements from the different schools of yoga, and incorporate them into my lessons to suit the desired intention of the class.Yoga, alternative physical / spiritual development, and the study of all aspects of developing a holistic lifestyle, provide an open ended journey of learning and discovery which I endeavour to deepen every day, and then incorporate into my teaching.
