I’ve been practicing yoga for the past eight years and teaching for the last two. I first discovered yoga back in 2012 – I was 19 at the time and despite my young age, I had always been interested in a holistic approach to health and wellbeing.
I always had the feeling that there was a better way to live this life – and I wanted to know how good life could get when we live in a way that is healthiest for our mind, body and spirit.
That year I signed up with a personal trainer and got to dive deeper into the components of physical health such as exercise, nutrition and sleep. Discovering yoga around this time allowed me to find the mind & spirit piece of the total health equation.
Yoga led to exploring meditation and then Ayurveda, and it soon became a snow-ball effect of immersing myself into the world of holistic health and well being. I met with professionals & practitioners, attended classes, workshops and retreats, read countless books and became absorbed in learning as much as I could.
Over the years, two things in particular stood out and held a special place in my heart: Yoga and Ayurveda. I have since formally studied Yoga and this is what led me to become a yoga instructor with a keen interest in the sister science of yoga, which is Ayurveda.
In my teaching experience, I’ve taught all kinds of yoga classes in a variety of settings: from vinyasa style to yin yoga, kids yoga to older adult yoga, hot yoga, chair yoga, outdoor yoga and mindfulness classes. I’ve taught in universities & colleges, corporate environments, community events, gyms & recreation facilities and also in peoples homes for small group or private lessons.
To this day, I continue to deepen my personal practice and live my life according to the principles of Yoga and Ayurveda. I believe in continuous education and ensure I always remain a student. It’s my passion to share the gift of yoga with as many people as possible and I hope to inspire everyone I come in contact with to live their happiest and healthiest lives using the wisdom of these ancient teachings.
I believe that when we live in a way of continually taking care of and nourishing our body, mind and spirit — life gets so much better and there is no ceiling.
