“Yoga teaches me to be calm, quiet and present. I find it an amazing way of re-charging my energy and it’s great to be able to share this love of yoga through teaching.”
As an ex dancer I have always had a keen interest in the body and a passion for movement. After 15 years of dance training and a series of injuries, I decided to give my body a rest and at age of 18 embarked on a pursuit to find a new career which involved helping people in some way. I spent the following 7 years studying and working for a few London charities supporting vulnerable children and people with mental and physical disabilities. In 2013 I joined my first yoga class whilst in search for a way to move my body again and I instantly fell in love. I couldn’t believe how good it felt and how calm my mind was for hours after the session – I was totally hooked. I had always enjoyed movement but this felt different.
My practice continued for a few years until I felt called to deepen my understanding of yoga on an anatomical, physiological and philosophical level. I left London, booked a flight to India and have never looked back. Yoga is a magical gift in my life and I feel very privileged to be able to share what I have learnt with others through teaching.
In 2017 I met Simon Borg-Oliver in Goa and experienced the Yoga Synergy method for the first time. Having struggled with various injuries from my dance background I was blown away by the release it gave me- especially for my lower back. Within 10 minutes it was apparent that this was a revolutionary way to practice as I felt many years of tension leave my body and a calmness wash over me. A few days later I had booked my first Yoga Synergy training with Simon and Bianca Machliss and a flight to Australia.
Alongside teaching yoga and apprenticing with Bianca at Yoga Synergy I am usually found planning adventures with my partner , diving into the ocean, or climbing walls at my local bouldering gym. I am a Level II Reiki Healer and love getting out of the city and into nature to re charge my energy whenever I can.
