भुनक्तु Bhunaktu, means to nourish in Sanskrit. It is my guiding intention as a yoga teacher.
I trained in Vinyasa Flow with Claire Missingham and my classes remain rooted in this powerful system that synchronises breath to movement. The practice is strong, but the pace is manageable so you will mindfully and sustainably nudge your comfort zone. I draw on the rich world of yoga philosophy and am inspired by Buddhist psychology; so although you are likely to get a bit sweaty, yoga’s physical aspect is not experienced in isolation.
Hands-on assists are an integral part of my classes and will help you access deeper forms of each pose. Pranayama (breath), mantra and mudra (hand gestures) are woven into the asanas (poses), so at the end, after savasana (relaxation) you will feel renewed and awakened.
My background is in producing dance and theatre. What I aim to create in my classes is what I look for in a piece of choreography; sequences designed to take you on a complete journey, leaving you feeling sthira (steady and stable) and sukham (light and ease-filled).
Looking forward to seeing you on the mat.
