I discovered yoga here in Jindabyne in 2006, after having battled a serious health issue, which had left my physical body quite weak and frail. Yoga literally changed my life! Having found the therapeutic benefits of yoga, physically and mentally, I decided to embark on a teacher training course with John Ogivili of Byron Yoga in 2010. At the time I had no intention of becoming a teacher, I craved more understanding behind the philosophy of the Eight Limbs as yoga had completely transformed my body and mind.
My training with John Ogilvili was a style called Purna, meaning integrated or complete. Purna Yoga represents a holistic approach to yoga integrating not just the physical postures but also philosophy, meditation, pranayama breath control and the yogic personal and social code of ethics, intergrating all 8 limbs (Ashtanga) of yoga the way it was originally taught, more than 3000 years ago in India.
Since my introduction to yoga I have been blessed having the opportunity to practice yoga in Bali and Thailand. In 2012, I began to attend workshops with Blue Mountains Ashtanga Teacher, Paul Frechtling, who studied in India under the master Sri K Pattabhi Jois. His teachings have helped to develop a deeper meditative state and awareness during my own practice. Further inspiring me to incorporate this style into my own classes.
The practice of yoga is intended to be joyful and to lighten the heart and mind by calming and energizing. I encourage students at all levels to build flexibility, strength and stamina of body, mind and spirit. This helps bring about a deeper understanding of the key yogic values including diet and lifestyle aspirations. Many discovering that yoga becomes for them a way of life.
