Why Do You Practice Yoga?

Since discovering hot yoga in 2008 after an accident that left me in a wheel chair, I have never looked back. The practice of yoga has become a metaphor for my life – being more mindful, eating better, sleeping better, living in the present moment more. Coming to a yoga class feels like coming home to a nice cup of tea and each time is a little different than the last. That’s what keeps me coming back- you could say I’m hooked on yoga and I love the addiction. Since taking the Teacher Training course, my mind has been opened further to the deeper aspects of the practice and I am very grateful for that. Being a teacher of what I have practiced for the last 8 years is both an honor and a responsibility that I feel towards my students.


Teaching Style and Class Styles Taught:

My teaching style is based on the Core 26 practice, 26 asanas and 2 breathing exercises, and is challenging for the students.


What you love about teaching at SGY:

SGY is a great place to teach and practice, because all the teachers are super supportive and ready to help, and the student population is diverse, motivated and fun to be with. The studio is well set up and a delight to teach and practice in.


Inspirational Quote:

Be yourself. Life is precious as it is. All the elements for your happiness are already here. There is no need to run,strive, search or struggle. Just be! -Thich Nhat Hanh
