As a young person, in the 60s and 70s, I felt a strong need for connection. I was encouraged by a mentor to pursue the teachings of the Eastern philosophies and the study and practice of Yoga. I started to work with Asana and Meditation to develop a deeply personal practice and cultivate my own integrated approach.
What I try to bring to my students is the opportunity to slow down and be present in their body, to help them to become more settled, grounded and steady physically and mentally.
Even though I have had many teachers and mentors, my students have been the most important teachers on my path. After teaching for 25 years I am still learning about and cultivating this relationship with Yoga.
These days I am delighted to weave the wonderful stories of the Sages, the mythological Dieties and modern day Dharma teachers of Buddhist wisdom into our classes. We explore the many approaches to meditation as well as classical Hatha Yoga and Vinyasa. We learn the how and the why of Yoga and how we can benefit from its secrets in our present day challenges.
