About me: I started my yoga journey in 2000 and my first words after my initial yoga class was ‘I have to teach this!’. I am passionate about sharing the ancient teachings of yoga, the benefits and the transformative power of it. I am a certified yoga teacher since 2003 (Vivekananda Yoga Therapy University), participated in countless workshops and training programs all over the world throughout the past 15 years, including the Yin/Yang Yoga teacher training from the pioneers of Yin Yang yoga, Paul & Suzee Grilley and Sarah Powers. I’ve taught hatha yoga, kids yoga, yin/yang yoga in Turkey, South Africa, India and Holland. I am also a holistic wellness coach and a mindfulness meditation teacher. I’ve also trained through the Shambhala lineage since 2008.

Class Specialty: There are three parts to this Yin/Yang and Mindfulness Yoga class;

  1. Taoist Vinyasa movements, the yang yoga, which will help to warm up the body and stimulate the ‘chi’ (life force) in the meridiens (energy channels)
  2. Yin yoga poses, that are static using tools of time and gravity, which will bring therapeutic effects, especially to deep tissues and joints.
  3. The mindfulness and meditative aspects, which will be an important part of the practice, that will bring relaxation, clarity, calmness and balance throughout your mind, body and spirit.
