Yoga is the pursuit of clarity of persepctive.
My teaching style is firm but compasionate with an alignment and breath based focus. My mother was my first teacher and she guided me from early on in the ways of breath. I have very old and precious memories of her calming me with 3 deep breathes into the belly.
In 2012, I met my Guru Yogi Ashokananda. He taught me how to be compassionate and bequeathed me with his yogic name; Dayananda. It means the bliss of mercy. Much of my teaching style, tone, and knowledge come directly from Yogi's lineage.
Prana Kriya, Himalayan Hatha, and meditation techniques, I continue the practice of how to be present, past and future. I have completed 500 specific teacher training hours with Yogi-ji and am a Senior Ashokananda School Teacher.
Yoga is a practice. Regular and constant. Like any other practice, the goal is not to become perfect but to have constant improvement. This sometimes comes in the form of acceptance and recognising our already perfect nature. My classes are challenging and humorous. I like to play and laugh and this comes through my teaching. I hope to see you in the studio and perhaps we can laugh together :)
