How I came to yoga (or yoga to me)

Coming from a fitness and running background I started yoga from a mere physical point of view.

I realised quickly that there is more than just the physical aspect of yoga. Having a consistent yoga practice really helped me to connect to my body and mind in different ways.

I also recognised the healing benefits of yoga; having been a long distance runner for almost a decade and participated in several marathons, I sustained a bad achilles tendon injury. Yoga taught me how to step back and to slow down, becoming aware and accept what the body really needs. It is amazing how much one can grow, learn and develop a deeper sense of gratitude just by having a consistent yoga practice.

Experience and Approach

I have been teaching yoga since 2014. I teach hatha flow yoga, yin and restorative yoga and meditation. I also teach pilates and somatic movement classes.

Yoga is for everyone. Providing an open, trusted and safe space for everyone to feel comfortable and being able to connect to themselves is essential for me.

My classes are challenging, but accessible to everyone. I teach slow flow sequences with precise alignment cues offering you a space where you can explore and discover your own potential.

I continue my study by attending various classes, workshops and trainings, I’m forever grateful to all my teachers who gave me the right tools to go deeper into my own practice and teachings.

I’m also a regular guest teacher at the 200h YTT @ Pure Health
