Ashtanga

Monday 6.30 - 7.30 pm

This class is for those with experience of Ashtanga and not suitable for beginners

I have been practising yoga for around 15 years and in 2010 completed my Ashtanga based Union Yoga teaching training with Brian Cooper and Nichi Green. Since then I have continued to practise under some amazing teachers including Kino MacGregor, Tim Feldmann, David Swenson and Uma Dinsmore Tulli. I am currently studying an in depth pranayama course with Phillip Xerri.

I am registered under Yoga Alliance Professionals as a SYT (Senior Yoga Teacher), having over 8 years and 4000 hours teaching experience. I love the structure and discipline of an Ashtanga practice and have developed my teaching style over the years to teach an Ashtanga Mix class, which is what I have found is most beneficial to both me and my students. The class is based on the Ashtanga Primary Series but I usually have a monthly focus area and some parts of the practice are changed slightly to include this. My class at The Yoga Station is a mixed level class and I aim to make it accessible to all levels.

I moved to the North East in January 2013 and love the beautiful coast and countryside and the warmth and encouragement I have received since being here helped me settle very quickly and call it home. I teach a variety of classes in Newcastle, mostly around the coast and of course on the beach at King Edwards Bay in the summer. I really feel we are building a great yoga community in the area and it is places such as The Yoga Station that encourage this. Alongside my weekly classes I also offer longer specials such as the Yoga Breakfasts, workshops and in the last year have invited some guest teachers up to teach workshops. I have run retreats in Spain and over the last 3 years I have also been running retreats to Lindisfarne in early Spring and late Autumn, these are really popular and lovely weekends.

I hope to see you in class soon. Because of COVID all class participants will need to bring their own equipment.
