I teach yoga that is strong and subtle, imaginative yet rooted in tradition. We’ll move in beautiful and strong flows, but always with inward directed awareness that involves the mind and the heart, too.
Through great attention to the detail of the physical body, we make space and build strength and integration, which allows us to move more deeply into the inner world.
Up until my late twenties I was the unsportiest person you ever knew, with plenty of bad habits and complete disconnection from my body. While living in Russia I came across a remarkable teacher (https://www.facebook.com/gladkikhom) who properly introduced me to the powerful practices of hatha yoga. Soon I was practising daily and delving deep into all the yoga practices and texts that I could find.
Yoga has brought such joy to my life and continues to support me through all my adventures, physically, emotionally and spiritually. I am so excited to share this with those who come to practise with me.
My style of yoga is hatha-vinyasa, which means that we move with the breath, strengthening and opening the body with a view to moving to more subtle levels of the self. Breath, anatomy and subtle work combines with plenty of movement and a bit of sweat.
I also teach meditation and breathwork - I am deeply inspired by the ancient philosophical texts of yoga, how beautiful and elemental they are an how much sense they still make to us on a daily basis, thousands of years after they were first composed.
