“Bring kindness and compassion to yourself and others, both on and off the mat.”
My yoga journey
I was introduced to Yoga when I first moved to London in 2002 and have become a keen practitioner ever since. I have undertaken the first 200 hrs teacher training with Rebecca Ffrench from "Yoga London" and 500 hrs advance trainings with Dulce Aguilar and Jamie Clark from "Yoga People" in Rocket, Mandala Vinyasa Yoga, and continuing my further training with various world’s greatest teachers: Maty Ezraty (Yoga Advance), Edward Clarks (Tripsichore), Uma Dinsmore-Tuli (Pregnancy Yoga), Murielle Burellier & Sebastian Puchelle & Bernie Clark (Yin Yoga), Anna Ashby (Restorative Yoga), David Swenson (Ashtanga), Mark Kan (Dharma Yoga), Eileen Gauthier (Ashtanga) and David Robson (Ashtanga).
I continue to develop a deep understanding of Yoga history, philosophy, science and the relation to the body + mind, and to share with my community. I was also drawn into anatomy when I was recovering from injuries and also became a certified Ayurveda Yoga Massage therapist.
I aim to teach, through Yoga, an appreciation of our present state of being, a mindfulness, to help counteract the stresses of daily life. My approach is rooted in Ashtanga with creative tools I learnt through my own experience and various schools of yoga. I share and teach the benefits of Ashtanga Yoga (Eight Limbs), help to strengthen the mental state of being and physical body. Yoga practice is inward and personal; encouraging to bring inner awareness and acceptance. My Yin and Restorative classes are about being still and accepting, while the Yang practice is dynamic and challenging. You will be guided to go deeper with breathing techniques (Pranayama) & physical poses (Asana) and well deserve relaxation (Savasana) at the end of the class. Though the classes are demanding and challenging, I use a non-competitive approach for every participant to allow them to challenge their own physical and emotional boundaries.
I share my knowledge with all students to remove any attachments (thoughts and fears that may bring negative energy) and instead brings positive vision, kindness and love into their lives by understanding and accepting the true self, inviting purity into the body and mind.
