Born in South Africa and grew up half my life in Switzerland and the UK, I have travelled as a professional ballet and contemporary dancer which has led me back to Cape Town dancing full time with Cape Town City Ballet. Having always been inspired by the art of movement, I found my passion in yoga through the Power Yoga Company in London where I worked part time. That safe haven provided a taster of the beauty that yoga holds and I fell in love with the experience and feeling it gives you every time one steps onto the mat. I completed a Pilates instructors course with Trifocus Fitness Academy, and a 200hr YTT course at YogaLife. To me yoga is special as it is a practice of connecting body to mind to spirit, as well as having an incredibly calming effect on the nervous system. It is a pure form of moving meditation, a sensation that is cherished as a dancer. The physical as well as mental and spiritual benefits yoga has, I am forever grateful for. I love to be creative and find interesting ways for the body to move. My style is a dance inspired vinyasa flow, incorporating a balance of strength, technicality, flexibility woven with the embodiment of mindfulness and one’s own pure essence/spiritual self. To share this practice and energy is such a gift!
