Can you tell us about the inspiration behind your passion for Teaching Yoga and Mindfulness?

"I teach yoga and mindfulness to create a more conscious and kinder world. I believe that by making a difference for one person it creates a ripple effect that will have a much larger positive impact. "

In every session, I aim to connect your mind and body making you feel more present and aligned. You then take the benefits with you into all parts of your life. As we know, life can be both beautiful and shitty - through yoga and mindfulness, I hope to provide tools that help my clients navigate it all and find flow, on and off the mat.

What is your favourite way to start a day?

With Movement! I’m a big morning person so I wake up dancing and love to channel that energy into a workout, a walk or a yoga practice - preferably outside. I also love teaching early in person classes as it’s lovely to come together around a shared interest first thing in the morning.

Your favourite Mindfulness applications on your phone?

The apps I use most in my mindfulness practice are Insight Timer and Spotify. I try to plan after my cycle and for that I use Flo. I’m also a fan of apps like Notion and Notes to organise my life.

What are your go-to tips for finding calm when experiencing stress?

The stress cycle is meant to end when the stressful event is over. If your stressor is long term, there’s a chance you can’t complete the cycle. The stress response will then loop which can lead to chronic stress.

So my number one go-to tip for finding calm in stressful moments is to have a handful of tools that help you close the cycle. This can be taking three deep breaths, going for a walk, listening to a short meditation or taking a nap. Anything to let your body know that you are safe and have nothing to fear.

What do you do to motivate yourself or to switch up energy throughout the day?

I like to plan my work day into four sections and make sure I switch up the tasks in each. Then the most important thing for me is to take regular breaks to move, go for walks and eat. I’m always more clear minded after a few minutes away from whatever I’m doing.

How do you define well-being?

For me, well-being is to be aligned with our individual truths, who we are and what we feel. It’s the sum of a person’s physical, mental and emotional state. I also believe in collective well-being - we are only as (un)healthy as our community.

What is the best advice to avoid procrastinating? 

"To plan ahead, get rid of distractions and hold yourself accountable!"
