I feel like yoga has always been there just waiting to come out! And while I was at university it made its appearance. At a time when stress, chaos and uncertainty were at the forefront, yoga came to the rescue and offered me a calm and blissful space.
Coming from an alternative background of artist parents with an interest in culture and meditation, the calling to explore a holistic way of life became stronger and stronger. After years of living in and then commuting to London, burying my inner self in trying to find my way in fashion, marketing and advertising, my yoga practice switched on a light and I found the courage to accept who I was and the life I wanted to lead.
In 2014 I completed my year-long Ashtanga teacher training course and am so grateful to work full time in bringing my experience and knowledge to help all kinds of people find their own clarity, calm and space for self-exploration and expression. I have been able to nurture my creativity in designing unique classes that integrate the breath, movement, relaxation and meditation to empower and inspire each individual.
Two of the Yamas from the 8 Limbs of Yoga that stand out to me are Ahimsa and Satya.
Ahimsa = non harming
Satya = truthfulness
Acceptance of where you are in your practice by letting go of the ego and the urge to push harder to go beyond your boundary allows you the space to bring your inner self to the surface and glow.
