Welcome to my website

”Do not believe anything until you have experienced it as your own truth”

Movement · Balance · Stillness

“Merge movement with unchanging stillness. Blend stretch with breath and depth-mind awareness. Bridging the inner and outer realms is yoga’s gift, allowing layer after layer to peel away until the truth is undisputable, and I am left suspended like a drop of dew, poised and lucid in the quiet.”

– Danna Faulds

You are kindly invited to explore my website to find how you can return to – or maintain – your own optimal way of being. Whether your path is one of practicing vigorous yoga sequences, quiet Yin yoga poses, nurturing breathing exercises, balancing healing sessions, or still contemplation through Mindfulness meditation, I would be delighted to assist you in creating a custom practice that will serve you well.

More about me

What I offer

Find out more about the yoga, healing and mindfulness that I offer.

Yoga

Movement

There are many different reasons for practicing yoga. Maybe you’d like to become more flexible, enhance your physical endurance, or simply improve your overall health. Perhaps you injured yourself and would like to get back to your full range of motion and strength. You may feel stressed and would like to use movement to find stillness in your mind. Or you’d like to create a deeper self-awareness and use your body to go inside.

Healing

Balance

Balance is our natural order. It is a state in which things occur in equal or proper amounts. Our body naturally works towards homeostasis – a stable state of equilibriumBut then life happens: too much work, too little sleep, worries, family issues, unhealthy diet, or whatever it may be, lead to physical, mental and emotional dis-ease. In other words: imbalance.

Mindfulness

Stillness

Taking a moment to be still allows you to tune into the immediacy of your experience; to notice it as it is right now. A moment of stillness can be just a pause, a moment in which you stop doing and simply take a deep breath.
