Our Jasmine Team
After discovering the joys of yoga a few years ago, it very quickly became something amazing in my life, something that took me away from everyday stresses and strains and brought a great sense of peace and balance to my life. I hadn’t found this same impact with previous hobbies and exercise routines. I practised Ashtanga, Hatha and Iyengar yoga but then discovered the joy of moving through postures with emphasis on the breath in Vinyasa flows.. It energised me and ignited my interest in embracing yoga fully into my life as a teacher. I trained in 2016 and launched Jasmine Yoga in 2017. It felt like a leap of faith to leave my career and embark on an adventure but what a privilege it has truly been. I love to welcome people into our Jasmine community and to see them grow in strength, flexibility and confidence. Many feel uncertain and self-conscious at first, but have flourished into happier people with competent yoga practices, beautiful posture and a greater sense of personal resilience, self-respect and a deeper self-awareness. I am a qualified Yin yoga teacher.
I started practicing yoga in 2012, finding my way there after ten years of contemporary dance training. For the last 5 years I've had a wonderful time exploring different yoga styles (Vinyasa, Hatha, Iyengar, Ashtanga and Yin), I then realised I felt drawn to deepen my own practice and share my experiences with the addition of teaching.
I started teaching in 2017 and completed my 200 hour Vinyasa TTC in Mysore, India earlier this year. My style of yoga is traditional Vinyasa which centres around strength building, through the holding of postures. Using the breath to maintain comfort (sukum) and stability (sthiram) in dynamic postures, with the addition of quick flow Vinyasa in between to energise and refresh the body. I also love vinyasa flow and yin yoga!
I started yoga as a way of meeting new people when I lived in Germany. In the beginning it was all about networking, but as time went on, I realised that there was so much more to yoga. Something in me just clicked on a spiritual, physical and emotional level. I began to open my heart to my true self by following my joy and not conforming to the ‘perfect’ person I once thought I had to be. For me, yoga is the ultimate journey!
My teaching style is all about honouring yourself as you are and are not, in the present moment. I love the energy and creativity of a Vinyasa flow class. Flowing from the heart, I combine breath with static and flowing movements to allow you to get out of your head and into your body. This breath to movement flow allows you to strengthen and open up the body by bringing an awareness to your own individual energy and playfulness.
