I have practised yoga since I first discovered it as a teenager in rural New Zealand. In the late 1990's as part of my social work practice with refugees recovering from severe psychological trauma I, with the support of a yoga teacher, established yoga classes for clients. This inspired me to train as a yoga teacher. I completed my yoga teacher training with Radiant Light Yoga in 2003. For nine years I taught classes in the community, for refugee clients and for the counselling and support staff who worked daily with traumatised clients. I then took a break from teaching to concentrate on my own practice. I have now returned to teaching.
My yoga teaching is informed by my deep knowledge and experience as a trauma therapy social worker. My classes deeply explore asana, pranayama and deep relaxation/meditation. For further information visit my website listed below.
