About Me

I have practiced many different styles over the last 25 years and more.  With yoga being so integral to my lifestyle, I chose to further my yogic studies through the Satyananda Yoga Academy at Mangrove Mountain (2009-2011) – which in turn  evolved into my teaching practice.

Such broad experience allows my style of instruction to be holistic, not being aligned to just one particular lineage or style.

I completed training as a Satyananda Yoga Teacher (A026013) in late 2011.  This course included 1400 hours of study made up of residential attendance and correspondence study.
