I began practicing yoga 5 years ago. I was at a point in my life where I’d just ventured into the “real world”. I had found my way into a demanding, rapidly growing start up company, and was left very overwhelmed and out of my depth. I began going to a yoga studio near me, and; although I didn't identify this fully at the time, looking back I can see that the classes allowed me to find a sense of steadiness, a space in which I felt safe and held and gave me somewhere that I could be true to how I was feeling. I began to come to the realisation that yoga really was becoming a type of medicine for me. It allowed me to ground and look after myself, I wanted to keep this medicine available to me, always.
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.
