I first encountered yoga in my late teens; but it was not until many years later when a knee injury forced me to give up karate, that I "fell into" a hatha yoga class and got hooked. At the time I was a book-keeper; after having been a PA, worked in import and exports and various other office jobs in and around London and abroad. Practicing pregnancy yoga while carrying my second son, and becoming more aware of the physical and mental benefits of yoga, I knew that I wanted to study this fascinating practice and become a teacher. So, after my son's birth, I began my studies and completed the British Wheel of Yoga Teaching Diploma in 2006. However, my own personal practice and teaching style was already heavily influenced by my one-to-one sessions with Sylviane Gianina, with whom I continue to study in the viniyoga style of teaching. And with whom I explore other realms of practice. Encouraged to further explore the viniyoga approach, I completed the approved three-year cYs viniyoga of Yoga Teaching & Therapy Practitioner Programme in 2010 and I continue to develop my passion for yoga therapy through ongoing studies with Ganesh Mohan of Svastha Yoga. My experience includes group and individual teaching/remedial work, yoga for back care, fibromyalgia, Parkinsons Disease, stroke survivors, the elderly, cancer care and addictions. During the last few years my interest in the energetic pathways of the body and the possibility to encourage healing has been realized through various other healing methods, such as Theta Healing and Quantum Being. This has changed my own personal practice and my teaching and has pushed me to explore newer and wider dimensions, for which I am truly grateful.
