I embarked upon my yoga journey 8 years ago when my dance teacher introduced yoga as part of our dance program in high school. Immediately I was hooked. Not only did I love how much it enhanced my dancing, but I loved how it balanced my mind, body and soul and awakened me on a much deeper spiritual level.
My love and passion for yoga continued to flourish while studying at the University of California, Santa Barbara. I was so fortunate to be able to practice with many amazing yogis throughout California. Yoga has blessed my life and introduced to me to so many beautiful people and wonderful experiences. My yoga adventure has taken me around the world participating in life changing yoga retreats and spiritual teachings. Through yoga I found meditation and now have completed three 10-day silent Vipassana retreats
After completing University I moved to the gorgeous Gold Coast of Australia where I discovered Essence of Living. Essence of Living soon became my second home and I have recently completed the 200hr. Yoga Certification at the Essence of Living International Academy. In addition to teaching yoga, I am also a remedial massage therapist. Having a diploma of remedial massage, I find great joy and happiness helping people come of out of pain with the art of therapeutic touch.
I feel honoured and privileged to share the gift of yoga. In my classes I aim to create a positive and harmonious space in which to inspire students to look within themselves, to find balance, peace and happiness and to grow. By focusing on the breath in pranayama, energizing the body through invigorating asana practice and balancing the mind, body and soul with deep relaxation meditation students are encouraged to let it go and let it flow.
