I discovered Yoga 30 years ago through Yoga Philosophy in the United States. In 1994 I enrolled into a 3 year Teacher Training program at a BKS Iyengar Academy in New Zealand.
My extensive training in this program allowed me to understand the importance of watching the development of a student’s yoga practice and to view every class and every student with a fresh outlook. This means that I watch the development of our students and adapt classes to their changing needs and interest. No two classes are the same.
I believe that being a Yoga teacher is a calling for me, I want to demonstrate to others that their bodies can change and heal through a dedicated practice, even if that practice begins as one class a week. I am always inspired to see the transformation of students as they develop their yoga practice, to see their bodies strengthen and become more flexible, to watch their stress levels and anxiety diminish, their minds calm down and begin to find some peace and see self-esteem improve. My goal is to help people develop the discipline and focus to create the lives they aspire to and to work on being an example of this. Yoga and yoga philosophy offers an opportunity for people to grow at their own pace and in their own time and I feel privileged to be a part of that journey.
