Yoga has always been a fundamental part of my movement practice, but particularly found a place in me during times that I was injured during my professional dance training. It was from this that I learnt the importance of connecting to the self, discovering how to move from within and how to allow the breath to guide you forwards.
My classes dedicate time and space towards such practices, with ideas that yoga is a practice that can benefit all bodies in one way or another.
I teach using a modified Ashtanga Primary Series, focusing on aspects of self care, the rejuvenation of the body through movement, and giving time to connect to the individual self. With attention sent to the quality of breath , pranayama is also an important element of my practice. A typical class structure would take time to learn and develop breathing techniques, to then move through a physical, warming, Ashtanga based practice, leading us to a meditative relaxation towards the end of class.
I tend to emphasis alignment in my teaching, and offer hands on adjustment and both sensory and verbal feedback to my students.
