What is it you love most about teaching yoga?
The possibility to make a difference in someone’s day, maybe someone’s life. I am able to spread the joy that yoga has given me and pass on the benefits of yoga whilst helping my students to reconnect in the present moment, relax and feel energised at the same time.
How do you de-stress after a long week?
The best way to recharge is to spend time with the ones that you love, doing simple things and enjoying time together.
How do you keep on top of your fitness whilst travelling?
I keep my yoga practice with me, yoga it’s a lifestyle and I always feel much better after a good yoga class.
What’s your top tip for a yoga newbie?
Yoga for beginners may be scary because they’re worried about not being able to do certain yoga positions. It is different for everyone and you are your own master who is in control of your body and mind and the teacher is there to guide you. Being flexible or being cool in the Asana (yoga poses) is not the aim of the practice. The aim is to find your space where you feel your body lengthening, creating more space for the Prana (energy) and releasing any tightness so the Prana can flow more freely.
Favourite yoga position?
I love inversions like headstand (Salamba Sirsasana) or tripod headstand (Sirsasana 2) as they relax and energise the mind, strengthens the whole body.
