I started yoga in 2002 to get stronger for running, tramping, climbing and swimming. By understanding my body, yoga helped me recover from and avoid injuries. Over time, I also found relief from chronic pain and help managing my stress.
I completed my first yoga teacher training with Byron Yoga Centre in Australia in 2012-2013. A year later, I returned to complete additional training. Since then, I continue to study and refine my skills and knowledge as a yoga teacher.
I teach a hatha style of yoga with a vinyasa flow to keep things moving. My classes focus on strength and a healthy range of motion without advanced poses or a lot of sweating. You can expect a different class each week.
I have an informal approach and encourage students to have fun and laugh along the way. When you come to my classes, my goal is for you to feel better in the way that is right for your body.
I am a Registered Yoga Teacher with Yoga Alliance (E-RYT® 200, RYT® 500) and have completed the Yoga Synergy Anatomy and Physiology Course. My other professional training includes Bachelor’s in Psychology, Masters in Social Work and Masters in Public Health.
I offer weekly classes, specialty workshops, workplace yoga and private sessions.
Workshops and special events: I offer occasional workshops and special events focused on stress and pain relief, including restorative yoga.
Workplace Yoga: I can provide classes onsite at your workplace and designed for your group. This could be a one-off workshop, weekly classes, an introductory package or special sessions focused on stress management.
Private sessions: Available for up to four people. Private sessions focus on yoga specific to your body. You might be interested in:
- A personal plan for home yoga practice
- Trying yoga for the first time
- Getting back to yoga after injury or illness
- Learning how to adapt poses for injury, pain or other health issues.
You can book just one session or as many as you like. I can come to your office or home in the Wellington CBD, or you can visit me at HealthFit Collective.
