My yoga journey began 25 years ago. Throughout my time practicing, training and teaching, I have explored many methods in search of those that are truly effective and deeply transformative as systems for self development. I share what I know from my study, training, experience and through the teachings of Yoga, Qigong, Therapies, Sincerity, Common sense and the direct experience of my own personal challenges. With 25 year's experience in holistic health - Yoga, pilates, qigong, nutrition, ayurveda, herbal medicine, bodywork, I have over 700 yoga teacher training hours, over 10,000 teaching hours (I've lost count) and I am blessed to have trained with many respected senior teachers of Iyengar, Asthanga, Hatha and Vinyasa yoga, Qigong and more recently Shaolin practices.
I am the founder of Sadhana Yoga. Sadhana - means practice or discipline and is fitting with my philosophy of commitment with regard to cultivating self awareness and growth through practical application of these systems. The approach to the practice is based on the Hatha yoga teachings. It is progressive, dynamic and caters to the needs of the individual’s limitations. Forcing or pushing the body into poses it is not ready for, over-use of alignment techniques and under- use of the bodies natural movement patterns leads to injury and disillusionment. For the practice to continually evolve the mind must pay keen attention to the activity while addressing the blockages and patterns that reveal themselves during the practice.
Through the practice of Asana (posture), Pranayama (breath) Dharana (concentration) and Pratyahara (withdrawal of the senses) students learn to move more mindfully, helping them to become more aware of their internal states and habits of body and mind. Yoga is an experiential science of self study (Svadhyaya) cultivating personal awareness. The teachings of Yoga are relevant to everyday situations and can be explored in a practical manner each time we step onto the mat.
