Yoga is what you make of it, whether it brings you fitness or mindfulness, the most important factor is that it makes you feel good, mentally and/or physically. It is your body your journey.

My passion for fitness started at the age of 10, when I joined my local athletics and handball team, where I trained for six years.  At the age of 16 I completed my first half marathon in Paris and this led me to become a long distance runner.  I started practicing Yoga 6 years ago and soon discovered the multitudes of benefits. Yoga had such a positive impact on my life, it made me reevaluate my priorities leading me to become a teacher in 2013.

I completed my teacher training with the Himalayan Institute specializing in the oldest form of yoga known as Raja Dhiraja system.  In 2014, I graduated as a Fierce Grace Teacher. Teaching in the heat means that I can work with more students with injuries. I have a strong interest in anatomy, injury and rehabilitation and I am working towards becoming a specialist in this field.
