For as long as I can remember, I have loved keeping my body in motion. Growing up, I practised both gymnastics and dance and I was fully committed to both disciplines. Throughout my life I’ve felt a deep love for moving my body. I just had to find a fitting way to express myself, one that enabled me to move in a liberating and graceful way. Yoga unifies the two for me and it is one of the loves of my life.

The purpose of every class I teach is to let students feel a constant element of flow where their bodies move in a circular wave throughout the whole session. I think it is the flow that makes the mind stop, that truly relaxes and grounds us. I see my own yoga practice and the classes that I teach as a meditational flow that increases balance, strength and flexibility, both on a physical and mental level. In a safe space, yoga often becomes dance and dance gives peace of mind. It connects us to our intuitive power and I encourage students to trust that completely.
