I have been practicing Yoga since 2007 and have been a certified teacher since February 2008. My journey started in India and led me Rishikesh, a little town in the North of India, which is also known as the home of Yoga. I knew I had to train there as my passion and interest for Yoga got bigger and bigger. So, I signed up for my first teacher training in Ashtanga.
My Yoga journey continued……
- 200h Yoga Teacher Training with YogaLondon (Vinyasa Flow, Power Yoga and modified Ashtanga)
- 100h Advanced Teacher Training with Radiantly Alive Bali (Vinyasa Flow) 2012
- Workshop with many great Yogis who influenced my teachings: Bryan Kest (Power Yoga), David Swenson (Ashtanga), Shiva Rea (Vinyasa Flow), Claire Missingham (Vinyasa Flow), Young Ho Kim (Vinyasa Flow), Stewart Gilchrist (Jivamukti)

“May the grace of all the realized Yogis of every tradition be upon us that we may succeed in realizing the peace and joy which is the divine Truth within us.
Om Shanthi Shanthi Shanthi”
Please keep on reading to find out more about the styles I teach!
Vinyasa means “breath syncronized movement” and involves a smooth movements that run together. In a typical class you move from one posture to the next on an inhale or exhale. The style of Vinyasa Flow allows lots of variety, however, sun salutations are usually included at the beginning of the class. To link certain postures and to keep a constant “flow”, we go through Vinyasas, which is a three-pose sequence of Plank, Chaturanga and Upward Facing Dog.
Ashtanga Yoga is the most traditional system of Yoga, for which Sri Pattabhi Jois and the Mysore style are widely known for. Postures, so- called asanas are grouped into six series: the primary series (detoxifies and aligns the body), the intermediate series (purifies nervous system by clearing energy channels) and the advanced series A,B,C, D (integrate strength and grace to the practice). To practice correctly, we move from one posture to the next on an inhale or exhale breath. Traditionally, the Mysore style involves self-practice of the different set series. My modified Ashtanga classes consist of a set of postures picked from the primary and intermediate series that focus on breathing techniques and help you improve your day-to-day posture.
Power/ Dynamic Yoga:
Where in Ashtanga Yoga you follow a set route at every practice, Power Yoga classes differ every time. They involve Vinyasas and more advanced postures. The class can be quite challenging because it is designed to go into postures more deeply and you move dynamically during the whole practice. Push-ups and lunges play a big role in order to increase stamina and strength.
