yoga teacher trainings that i’ve done

why restrict ourselves by limiting our approach to yoga with one singular ‘style’? yoga is a tradition that is multi-faceted and ever-evolving and we should allow ourselves the freedom to explore and evolve alongside it. The seeds of  our own potential await patiently for us to be uncovered. When we are open, receptive, responsive and adaptive, we invite that potential to manifest itself with abundance.

From my broad and diverse training I have developed a unique dynamic flow style with strong focus on alignment, core stability and creative sequencing. I respect and acknowledge the various lineages and systems of yoga that I have encountered over my 20 years of self-practice and 10 years of teaching. I have studied with leaders in many systems of yoga but believe in teaching people rather than styles of yoga. Thanks to my open approach to yoga, I have always been able to teach intuitively and to spontaneously adapt sessions to meet the needs of the students.

My training in  Mat 1 and dynamic reformer Pilates has given me a strong grounding in alignment principles and thai yoga massage has provided me with an intuitive understanding of the body for effective hands-on assists.

It is this diversity, variety and broad-based experience of practice and teaching that I bring to the Real Flow Yoga Teacher Training.
