Ashtanga Yoga Teacher
My yoga journey began about 15 years ago. Yoga has changed my life completely and my intention is to share this practice with others so they can discover the transformative power of it for themselves.
I spent three months studying with R. Sharath Jois at the Sri K Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute in Mysore, India(2008-2014). I have studied and practiced with numerous leading yoga teachers, I completed two Ashtanga Yoga Teacher Trainings, with David Swenson and with Basia Lipska Larsen, both direct students of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois. I am a disciple of Sri Mooji who is a direct disciple of Sri Harilal Poonja (Papaji), the renowned advaita vedanta master.
I have been teaching yoga since 2008. In 2013 I set up Ashtanga Yoga Manchester, a dedicated ashtanga yoga studio in Manchester, UK.
I love hiking and everything to do with nature. I live in Manchester with my husband and our daughter Maria. We love gardening and over the last few years we have been growing veges and flowers in our little garden. I work in collaboration with my husband who is an artist (Tankpetrol). I support his projects with my photography, stylist and web design skills. I’ve recently started painting myself and I enjoy it very much.
“You already are, the peace you are looking for. Be still and know that” Mooji
