My Journey

For me, Yoga is an essential life-long practice that maximises our potential, helping us to find and to understand the truth of who we are.

I believe in a continuous and holistic practice that incorporates: embodied movement (Asana), meditation, breath (Pranayama), ayurveda (ancient holistic medicine, encompassing Nutrition, Mind and Lifestyle), self-enquiry (Svadhyaya). I commit to a daily practice.

I teach Asana, Pranayama and Meditation to allow people to feel connected to their essence. With a lifelong passion for movement, I am interested in the physical practice of Yoga and the effect of Asana and Pranayama on the body, mind and movement of energies. I also practise Transcendental Meditation, and firmly believe in its healing and transformative power.

I am a yoga teacher certified RYT E-200 and RYT 500 by Yoga Alliance. I first trained in Iyengar Yoga in Paris with Alex Onfroy (2010-2012) before relocating to Melbourne and completing my 200hr YTT certification in Vinyasa Yoga at Power Living Australia (2014), with Cassie Lee and Chris Wilson. I recently completed advanced studies in Tantra and traditional Hatha with Zuna Yoga, in Bali. My teaching is continuously influenced by Modern Yogis like Rod Stryker (Yoga Nidra), Meghan Currie, Dice Iida-Klein as well as by my students and my own holistic practice.

 

My Values

 

Be clear about what you stand for, and you will take better care of yourself. 

These values support all my actions, on and off the mat.


Generosity

Give and receive with equal respect and compassion towards self and others - in intention, words and action; in ways that generate positive impacts. 


Courage

Continue to move forward with passion and ambition despite obstacles and disappointment. 


Transparency

Be honest with yourself, to understand and honour your needs and desires. Be open, truthful, and accepting in any situation, whether it be professional or personal.


Selfless passion

Be in tune with and moved by a force that is beyond the Ego.

My Ambition

After their practice, I hope that my students feel inspired in their hearts, spacious in their bodies and fearless enough to live in radical self-acceptance off the mat.
