YogashalaWaterdown has such a comfortable and low pressure atmosphere. I always look forward to spending time there. Wonderful teachers and staff, and a perfect variety of class options. So happy to be part of this environment.
I have practiced yoga on and off since I was just an
adolescent. But it really sucked me in after struggling through a
few difficult years with depression and anxiety. I had revisited my
mat once again for a countless time in 2013, homesick and
distraught but this time it was different. Something opened up
inside of me and released. My anxiety dissipated, the depression
melted away and I felt this strong connection with something
higher. I felt connected to my self, body, breath, and ultimately
the universe. The things I was deeply struggling with began to
transform into light, strength and peace within. A year later I
felt called to start my journey as a yoga teacher to share this
amazing gift with others.
I am so grateful for Clayton and Shanine who taught and guided
me through my yoga teacher training. I am also immensely inspired
and influenced by Johanna De Castro, Trish Dingman, Anwar Qureshi,
Sarah Barnhart, and plenty more!
When I teach I try to let go and allow creativity to flow
through me and inspire my classes. There is a strong focus on
alignment, breath and moving inwards to allow the external world to
melt away. I encourage students to find their edge and evolve their
practice by tapping into their strength, breath and potential.
My classes will help you to build strength, flexibility, and
find mind-body awareness. I hope for students to leave my classes
feeling uplifted, inspired and to awaken to their full potential
both on and off the mat.
