dynamic flow, lively and energizing
Meditation: Once a month we dedicate a class towards meditation practice. We begin by warming up the body and preparing the mind with some gentle dynamic asanas and breathwork. The class is open to both those new to meditation as well as those with an established practice who would like to deepen their meditation in the support of a group. All that is needed is an upright posture, either with the support of props or a chair and an open mind.
Yoga Nidra: Yoga Nidra is received in the supine position and leads to a deeply relaxed state in which the practitioner hovers between the states of dreaming, sleeping and waking. This process has a rejuvenating effect on the whole body/mind system. A wonderful practice to balance the effects of our demanding modern lifestyles.

AWARENESS & BREATH
My approach to Yoga Asana is breath centered and dynamic. The sequences are designed to flow intelligently from form to form Vinyasa Krama. Students learn the forms as well as variations with continual practice and repetition. Over time finding more strength, stability, flexibility, and mobility in the poses. Eventually work in the poses becomes more subtle, allowing for increasing mindfulness, awareness, a sense of play, as well as developing a meditative quality within the practice.
Every class begins and ends with awareness practice and attention to breath. In this way we become very conscious of how we are showing up and how the practice effects us on an individual level. Different breathing techniques or Pranayamas are utilised to support the asana practice, and to cultivate a quieter, clearer, and calmer state of mind.
Meditation is approached in an accessible and experimental way allowing space for all experiences that may arise.
The act of regularly sitting with ourselves, and drawing our attention inwards opens the door for meditative states to arise. Along the way we get to observe the nature of our minds, thoughts, and emotions and how to work with them. Regular practice can lead to more clarity, contentment, self-awareness and acceptance, creativity and inspiration.

She studied traditional Hatha Yoga and has immersed herself in a variety of styles/traditions such as Kripalu, Ashtanga, Vinyasa and Viniyoga as well as Meditation. Her teaching is characterised by the integration of her experiences and continual studies in these approaches. Her own daily practice serves as a source of inspiration, grounding, connection and creativity.
