My intention as a teacher is to provide an environment where loving kindness can prevail, both to ourselves, our fellow companions and life itself. Safe, enjoyable and at times fun, where our natural, joyful movement, as nature intended, can be reclaimed. I use an intuitive approach whereby the teaching can be adapted to suit the person/group. I like to be as creative as possible to encourage, stimulate and deepen the practice and self enquiry. Small sensory movements are often practised to heighten awareness, prepare and kneed the body, like dough -before entering other more classical postures. As such the rhythm of a session can vary enormously – sometimes with flowing sequences, other times with longheld postures and always with self-reflecting meditations and relaxations to heal and merge personal with universal. Sometimes partner work too is practiced to give, receive, learn from and appreciate the experience with others.
The love of Yoga and how it can transform people’s lives led me to train further within this school, so that I could help on their 3-year teacher training programmes around India. In 2008, I moved to Gokarna, India and opened Namaste Yoga Farm my own place where i could teach Yoga – seeking adventure and more spirituality in my life!
Mother Nature Herself continues to inspire me daily with her beauty and intricate simplicity and I feel strongly, that to be in touch with Her in all Her beauty and variety is a healing in its own right; She reminds us of the natural rhythm of life and thus has the power to reconnect us to our own true nature – expanding our vision out from the restricting limits we alone have set around our own minds and lives. Thus all the retreats offered are held in places, set within beautiful, natural surroundings.
