Yoga & me
Yoga is for everybody. In its essence, yoga is a mind-body practice that combines physical postures (asanas), breathing techniques (pranayama), meditation, and relaxation.
Yoga has been used by many traditions for it’s health benefits, and excitingly, more and more scientific studies are emerging that reinforce the biopsychosocial (biological/physcial, psychological, and sociological) health benefits of the practice of yoga.
Yoga Therapy uses evidence-based yogic practices in the treatment of specific health conditions and aims to empower individuals to progress toward improved health and wellbeing, by working one-on-one or in small groups with a qualified yoga therapist.
New to yoga? Give it a try. There are many different styles, lineages, and teachings of yoga, which means it’s yogi’s choice! We suggest trying out a variety of classes to find the style, teacher, and studio you resonate with the most.

Across millennia there have been many schools of Yoga and many teachers, each with their own distinct practice approaches. New ways of working, new techniques, new ways of communicating continually emerge.
My journey to becoming a yoga therapist was a long time in the making. It certainly did not happen overnight and was a slow pull in that direction.
