Movement has always been part of my story – my parents were amateur athletes; together we spent evenings and weekends sailing in the Caribbean Sea, cycling and roller-blading in the park. After a short stint of ballet in my childhood, I found my stride in tennis, volleyball and squash, which I played competitively while at school and University.
I am also storyteller at heart, and so I feel my teaching practice as a calling to turn the body into the pen and paper of our personal stories. I believe that by giving the body freedom to express itself in a space that is vibrant, curious and yet thoughtful and considered, we can all begin to piece together our own paths to self-discovery, self-healing and deeper connection to others, to nature and to something beyond ourselves – to spirit.
I feel yoga as a path of service in which I am called to share the safe and creative exploration of a physical practice, leaving space for the unravelling of something deeper, more meaningful and individual in us all.
