My yoga journey began with a VHS tape in a basement ten years ago, to address injuries that weren’t responding to physical therapies. I was fortunate to make a home at Ashtanga Yoga Montreal, a community of Ashtanga and Iyengar trained yoga teachers, also with extensive knowledge of dance, bodywork, and meditation.
Since moving to Australia, I have been studying with Nicky Knoff and James Bryan, former students of B.K.S Iyengar and Pattabhi Jois, who have designed an innovative system blending the intelligent alignment of Iyengar yoga with the energetic principles of Ashtanga vinyasa yoga.
Whilst working to understand my chronic back pain and the imbalances that contributed to my pathology, I discovered Stretch Therapy - a system that provides unique techniques for assessing and addressing tension lines in the body that I had avoided, despite years of yoga practice. I now teach Knoff Yoga and Stretch Therapy, and love creating a playful space to learn and explore; helping people to connect with themselves, and to cultivate healthier relationships with their bodies.
