Welcome to my Yoga & Coaching website. Although my days are now more filled with running the various Yeotown businesses I founded, at heart I still view myself as a yoga teacher as that is where my journey towards health and wellness began. My full spectrum yoga classes offer Positive Psychology inspired Vinyasa Flow Yoga at its most potent by creating sequences to inspire fluidity, fire, freedom and FLOW.
My yoga sessions focus on various character strengths such as Curiosity, Zest and Patience to create more space, levity, strength and healing within both the body and the being. I am well versed in how to offer various kramas (modifications) and variations allowing me to simultaneously engage both the experienced practitioner and more foundational student.
The Art of Kintsugi: Making the Broken Places Beautiful
Kintsukeroi or Kintsugi as it is also known, is the Japanese art of repairing damaged or broken pottery. Rather than simply gluing the shattered pieces back together, it takes the time to purposefully and painstakingly highlight the breakage using a mixture of lacquer and powdered gold, silver or platinum.
