Yoga Therapy Practitioner ~ RYTP
Embracing nature and our senses in the context of classical yoga is when yoga comes alive; our mind awakens, we hear and feel our bodies in our ever changing surroundings. It is in the development of our senses that human nature blossoms.
My belief is that everything is simple at the core and full of intelligence. I approach private sessions and classes the same, everyone is intelligent about their bodies, minds, spirits, and life; they may just need reminding, re-patterned or choices.
I instinctively meditate being in the moment as a way of life finding yoga fascinating in all its levels and expansive. Yoga teaches me to go further, to be still, to laugh, and cry . . . to be me. It is through continued exploration of yoga asanas, meditation and pranayama that my physical presence becomes inspiring and empowering.
As an intuitive instructor, I encourage personal interpretations of postures meditations, and philosophies, while preserving asanas’ alignment and integrity. My approach is mischievous, encouraging individual body shapes, abilities, and mindsets to simply ‘be’ – be free, be themselves. I challenge each participant to see themselves anew, while conscious that each is already perfect.
Teaching in Canada, the UK, France and India I learnt people are all want to be heard, do their best and be recognized for their uniqueness. Yoga is my bridge to connecting wherever I travel.
In 2007 my 1st visit to India – my yoga studies took me to Aranmula, Kerala in Southern India for 4 months where I increased my knowledge of Classical Yoga, received daily instruction in Kathakali, Carnatic Chants and Song, Ayurveda Medicine and Southern Indian Cooking and Culture. Being in the heart of yoga taught me so much.
In addition to valuing the knowledge of mentors, apprenticing, and self-study, I learn by doing, observing and absorbing what I need. My students teach me the most.
Recently I became a yoga adviser of Programs, Accreditation, and Training for Yoga Samgata opening soon in Canada, the UK and France. I’m excited and honoured to join this new yoga association.
