I first learnt about yoga when I came across an Iyengar book in the library when I was in high school but it wasn’t until I was at University where I was studying different religions including Hinduism that I started a regular practice. I loved the way it was helping me manage a back injury and anxiety, but I wanted to learn more than just the physical poses.
After moving to Australia I completed my yoga teacher training. It was around this time I also became interested in how food fuels our bodies, so I decided to head back to University and get my Master’s Degree in Nutrition.
I have practiced Iyengar and Ashtanga yoga, but have fallen in love with ISHTA yoga. It’s a style that combined the ancient Indian and contemporary sciences to cater for the individual student’s needs. As someone who has had her fair share of injuries in the past I loved knowing that I could come to class and just adapt my practice to suit my needs. It is something that I always encourage in the classes I teach as well.
I have over 1000 hours of training including additional training in Yoga Philosophy, ISHTA and Yin. I have been blessed to have practiced and studied with some incredible teachers, including Kathryn Budig, Kavi Yogiraj Alan Finger, Yogiraj Sarah Platt Finger, Yogiraj Ulrica Norberg and my own teacher Yogiraj Tamara Graham.
In yoga we always remain students. I look forward to spending my lifetime continuing my yoga journey, always learning and sharing my passion and love for this beautiful practice.
