Working across disciplines, through the lens of psychology and psychotherapy, I work with people to examine life using modern and traditional movement techniques. Interested in everyone practising individually but in community, I foster an environment where a group is forming/bonding naturally. I offer challenging yet accessible teachings, in search of a richer range of possibilities in our movement and thus our life.
My traditional teachings are informed by my personal practice which is deeply rooted in Astanga, Yin, Pranayama and Kriya practices. In addition to yoga, I have enriched my personal practice and teachings with ongoing research with Fighting Monkey Practice (Linda Kapetanea/Jozef Frucek), Flying Low and Passing Through technique (David Zambrano), and research by psychologist Dr Mihály Csíkszentmihályi and psychiatrist Dr Bessel Van Der Kolk M.D.
Parallel to teaching, I complemented and developed my skills as a teacher by completing academic research through The University of Cambridge (Masters Education Psychology (First)) and a Foundations Degree in Dance Movement Psychotherapy with Goldsmiths College, University of London.
Devoted to bringing the practice of yoga and meditation to all ages and communities, I also teach at inner city London schools and offers community classes in inner city London.
