Teddington, United Kingdom
Yoga Teacher and Yoga Teacher Trainer
I have practiced Yoga for about 25 years and taught since 2002. For me Yoga isn’t just something you do on your mat with a teacher but a lifestyle, a whole way of living and thinking. I encourage my students to do a little bit of Yoga everyday. Whether that is 15 minutes of asana practice or Yoga breathing in bed before sleep or mindfulness practices around emotional wellbeing during a busy day at work.
My classes are an eclectic mix of asana and creative sequences and I always like to emphasise the importance of relaxation and breath awareness as part of any Yoga practice. I enjoy sharing the rich philosophy of Yoga with my students, and how it can positively impact our daily lives and our relationships. In 2013 as Yoga Alliance SYT I was accredited to deliver a 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training Programme, which has been a complete joy. We are currently about to launch our 100 hour Advanced Teaching Workshops and CPD, life just gets better!

I am 38 years of age and a mother of a 14-year-old son. In addition to my apprenticeship as a nationally recognized educator, called “Marmayogalehrerin ® by Dr. Roque Lobo” (IPSG), I am a Yoga teacher for children and young people (with a total of 500 lessons) and besides the training as a relaxation instructor I have a large repertoire of training for Yoga & relaxation techniques, various seminars and a lot of life experience to offer. Also, I am an Ayurvedic Marmaoil masseuse. To expand my own Yoga practice and the deepening of the Yoga-philosophy I visit Yoga classes, workshops and seminars regularly.
The peculiarity of my listings is characterized by the fact that personal contact and the handling of the participants are very important to me. The most important thing for me is to inspire people with the topics of Yoga, self-awareness and to work with them through my bright spirit. With a work experience of over 19 years in various social areas I manage to respond to the individual needs of my participants in the combination of different methods. Especially the work with children and adults with special needs has become one of my specialties. The positive feedback from the people in my classes and seminars often inspire me to develop new ideas that I really like converting, and will help me grow and move forward.
