What was your favourite thing about your yoga training?
My first 200 hour yoga teacher training was on Lake Atitlan. An ancient volcanic lake in the highlands of Guatemala. One nigh were doing some transformative energy stimulating work, similar to kundalini. There was an intense thunderstorm going for first hour of the work, after 3 hours of intense work at 10pm, sweaty, emotional and vulnerable, the whole group (17 teacher trainees) jumped in the magical waters of the lake. It was like a true experience of renewal and connection. A truly transformative experience.
What’s your favourite thing about Yoga Village?
The accessibility and non judgemental attitude to affording yoga, which make teaching at the studio a joy.
Sweet or salty?
Lake or ocean?
Mountain top or beach?
Sunrise or sunset?
Both, but sunsets are always romantic.
Sun or moon?
Columbine Flower and the Cedar Tree.
Favourite Yoga Pose?
Because it offers a chance to fold into your self for deep stretch in the legs, back and side body. For me its a feel good pose, even when I'm feeling tight.
