I am an experienced yoga teacher and the Director of Beecroft Yoga. Over the last decade (and longer) I have gained wide range of expertise grounded in inspiration from Donna Farhi and Judith Hanson Lasater plus my colleagues at Simply Yoga in Crows Nest.
After many years with a sore back, I came to yoga somewhat as a last resort and was delighted to find that my back problems improved remarkably with yoga practice. On the way to finding that my back was much improved, I discovered that yoga helped me to have a quieter mind and a greater sense of well-being. I have been practising yoga for 20 years and teaching for 15 years.
I have completed the Nature Care College Diploma of Health (Yoga). I have completed Advanced Teacher Studies with Donna Farhi. I keep my teaching fresh and inspired by regularly attending workshops and through my own study.
I teach with a high level of awareness of my students and my teaching is based on attention to detail. I feel it is important that students practice asana (poses) in a way that will reduce the possibility of injury. Because of my own back problems, I am empathic and know that many students come to yoga seeking help with their health issues.
If would also be true to say that I really care about the students who come to Beecroft Yoga. I am interested in their well-being and helping them to feel more flexible, stronger and alive. Many students say how much better they feel coming to yoga and what a big difference it makes to their lives. Click here for what they say.
I teach yoga classes in Beecroft and Crows Nest, also private yoga lessons and hold weekend retreats in the Sydney area.
