motivated yoga teacher and yoga therapist, committed self-healer and freelance marketer for fellow truth-digging businesses & individuals.
My personal practice is constantly evolving with time, study, and experience. I am always striving to reveal deeper truths within myself; such as where I might be holding onto destructive thought patterns & behaviours, or simply becoming more aware of what parts of myself I reject or disempower. I find the most effective way of doing this is through focused breath and movement. The yoga I practice brings myself and my students into their bodies through deep conscious breathing and as a result, detaches us from the numbing distractions of the mind and brings us into feeling, specifically into areas of the body that have been neglected or may hold tension or trauma. This is where the magic happens; it is only from this embodied, grounded place within ourselves that we can be in true service to life and those around us.
Yoga Therapy |
This work involves using an array of techniques drawn from teachings I've been exploring & studying for over 10 years to help understand and heal disconnection and addiction. My style aims to alchemise mind, body and spirit imbalances so we connect deeper and more authentically with ourselves and our purpose. Dependent on the needs of each client, a session could involve some of (but not limited to) the following practices: Breathwork, Kriya, Forrest Yoga, Hatha/Vinyasa Flow Yoga, Trauma Release, Counselling and Coaching.
The yoga I teach is about embodiment not transcendence. I want each person to feel empowered in the bodies they live in every day, so we can best use them to unlock our power and potential as positive forces in the world. As a yoga therapist, I'm passionate about inspiring clients to become their own best teachers and healers. Having been on my own journey of healing from trauma and addiction over the past 10+ years, I draw from experience working with a vast range of modalities that helped me to deepen my awareness of unconscious patterns (aka cut the bullshit), and bring me closer to (my) true nature.
"yoga is my discipline, dance is my liberation; the marriage between these two, when balanced, is utter bliss & freedom."
I am a marketing professional with 11+ years experience across advertising, PR, corporate social responsibility projects and social media. 7+ of those years were spent working for the Ogilvy Group in South Africa and the UK. The last 5+ years I have been focused on social strategy and content creation for global brands. I began freelancing to use my skills and experience to support businesses that I believe in and are aligned with my values.
I have a great interest in behavioural economics and using creativity in communications to initiate positive change.
