Iyengar Yoga Teacher
About me
Like so many yoga practitioners, I find the human body and mind to be sources of intense curiosity and wonder. I'm fortunate because my passions and work coincide – I teach Iyengar Yoga, I teach anatomy and physiology to yoga teachers and other body workers in NZ and abroad, and I help people with injuries or medical conditions through the therapeutic application of yoga.

Yoga first became part of my life back in the 1970s.
In the 1990s, I was awarded my Introductory Teaching Certificate by the Iyengar Yoga Association of NZ (http://iyengar-yoga.org.nz/) and in November of 2018, I gained my Junior Intermediate 2 Teaching Certificate. Through the years, I have been inspired and nourished by local and visiting senior Iyengar teachers, including Geeta Iyengar, Pixie Lilas, Glenn Ceresoli, Gulnaaz Dashti, and Rosie Holland. And I have benefited immensely from studying at the Ramamani Iyengar Memorial Yoga Institute in Pune, India, the 'home' of Iyengar Yoga. There, I had the great privilege of learning at the very feet of members of the Iyengar family and community.

Known for its focus on precision, alignment, sequencing, and the use of simple props, Iyengar Yoga is adaptable for people of any age, of any body type, or with limitations of some sort. It builds strength, flexibility, balance, stamina, and – just as importantly – awareness and equanimity.
