Yoga & Coaching


I first started practising yoga in 2004 following a sports injury from running. When I discovered the many positive benefits of yoga practice I began exploring different yoga styles and found Ashtanga yoga which I have been practising since. And, if you’ve read my biography, you will know that the practice helped me recover from a serious burn out and the health problems that followed.

I am immensely grateful for having the continuous opportunity to study with and receive guidance from my teacher Sharath R Jois at the KPJAYI in Mysore, India. He has blessed me with the authorization to teach the primary and intermediate series of Ashtanga yoga and to pursue the lineage of his grandfather Sri K Pattabhi Jois.

Since I started practising and later also teaching, I have been fortunate to do trainings and workshops with several senior Ashtanga Yoga teachers such as Rolf NaujokatEddie Stern, Richard Freeman, David Swenson, Maty Ezraty and Susanna Finocchi. I have also studied the Dynamic Yoga Teaching Method and I am deeply grateful to Godfrey Devereux and Olof Kuijt for their teachings and advice.

I’m very thankful to all my teachers who, through the process of yoga have taught me to become more patient and humble. They’ve also helped me reconnect with myself and made me realise that anything is possible and that every individual has an enormous inner potential that is waiting to be discovered.

My yoga journey continues daily both on and off the mat and I will always remain an eager student. I’m devoted to my teacher Sharath R Jois and I try to make at least one yearly trip to Mysore, India to study and practice at the KPJAYI.
