I have, in the past, said that hot yoga "wasn't for me". I had attended a couple of classes, and had practiced in the heat in India and had determined that there was just no way that my body would feel good doing yoga in the heat.

Compassionate flow, restorative and Kripalu yoga guide.

I am passionate about teaching, leading, and supporting others in their practice. Each time I arrive on my mat I find strength in the vulnerability of my breath and my movement. When a fellow practioner chooses to share their practice with me, allowing me to guide them and support them, I feel honoured and humbled. 

I do not strive to be a guru on the mat, or to pretend to have it all together or that I have the answers. This is my practice as well. But as a guide I lead a safe, gentle, intuitive practice so that the students learn to connect with their inner wisdom, the inner guru to enhance their practice by listening to the messages from their body. To find compassion and curiousity for what is arriving with them on the mat that day. 

Each day on my mat I find a new aspect of the Self to work with. I hope you join me to explore your own physical, mental, spiritual and emotional wisdom.
