Why you became a yoga teacher:
I started yoga ten years ago after suffering a back injury after jumping off a diving board in Croatia. I started chiropractic treatment, and it felt like it just made it worse. So I decided to start yoga (and Pilates) as a more natural way of healing my back. After only a couple of months, my injury was gone, but I had become hooked on the connection between the body and the mind.
What to expect from a class with you:
I like to think of myself as a dancer crossed with a ninja in my practices and classes - moving with intention, grace and strength. You can expect some funky transitions, fluid sequences and playful poses all sequenced to a vibey playlist that reads the mood.
Favourite pose and why:
Supported bridge. Not exactly the fanciest pose ever but I find it unbelievably relaxing.
Other talents besides teaching yoga:
Ram Dass, ‘We’re all just walking each other home’ - it’s such a great reminder that all we’re really doing is helping each other find our way to true understanding.
Favourite dog breed:
If you could choose a superpower:
Teleport. Easy one for a Brit in Australia.
