I am a career hairdressing session-master and started practicing yoga in 2008 to balance the stress of running a busy salon and working in the world of fashion runways. My initial perception of yoga was that it was for those who had lithe, flexible bodies, or those who started yoga early in life. I had spent most of his life overweight, out of shape, with a history of unhealthy addictions to chemicals and food. My first class was a one-on-one and from that first class, I knew I’d stumbled on something different, but I had no idea how profound this journey was going to be. I’m continually amazed by how a rubber mat and an open mind can do so much.
Through the unconditional support, guidance and encouragement of wonderful teachers I’ve broken through mental and emotional boundaries and transformed my physical body. The practice, teaching and assisting of Baptiste yoga is a beneficial factor in the quality of communication I have in all areas of my life.
I graduated Yoga One Teacher Training in March 2013 with 200 RYT and have worked hard to attain 200 hour Tier One Baptiste Certification and Advance Art of Assisting through Yoga Alliance and the Baptiste Power Institute.. I am delighted to be working in this field of personal growth and expression with such a wonderful family of students, assistants and teachers. I am committed to reciprocating the gifts I’ve received by sharing and leading others in their own journey.
