Yoga is not about crossing your feet behind your head. It is about your
indivdiual body and your self. In my 200hrs Teacher Training with Rachel
Zinman and John Weddepohl I learned to individually adapt postures to
different needs and I was introduced to the teachings of Selfknowledge
(Vedanta), an ancient yogic philosophy still applicable in modern times.
I love to challenge my students on a physical as well as a mental level
but at the same time provide a lot of room for balance and relaxation.

Yoga changed my life. Before yoga, I was living a sedentary lifestyle and dealing with the pressures
of school and work. These became my excuses for having no time for anything else. While I was in
college, a friend of mine told me of the wonderful experiences and health benefits she gained from
practicing yoga, and I enrolled in a semester of yoga to satisfy my physical education requirements,
and to hopefully improve my health, which was slowly, but noticeably, declining.
It wasn't on the first day of class, or the second, but the day came when I noticed a true transformation was beginning to take place within myself. I had more energy, I was less stressed, and I simply felt happier. My motivation to do more yoga grew, and my health and happiness grew with it.
Yoga can be and is, for everyone. As a teacher, I aim to help others find a practice of their own, and be a helping hand on their path to health and happiness.
About 2 years into my practice, I felt called to dive deeper into my own practice, and the teachings of yoga. At the start of 2017 when my partner was offered a job in Zurich, I used this opportunity to take the plunge and train as a Yoga Teacher, developing the skills to be able to offer up this incredible medicine of yoga to the public. I completed my 200 Hour Teacher Trainer with the incredible teachers Leila Sadeghee & Bridget Luff, who focus on an anusara-inspired vinyasa yoga.
I believe that yoga can be tailored to provide a particular, unique medicine for everyone; be it finding stillness, wringing out life's stresses and tensions, or focusing on biomechanics to help heal strains and injuries.
I really enjoy working with and understanding people, their bodies and what makes them tick. I have particular
interests in Reiki and Aura Healing and have completed courses in both topics but want to continue this and
My goal is to help others to make healthy decisions and improvements, both physically and mentally, and to teach people how to be more mindful, create some calm and take time to look after themselves.
