Through all her training and years of teaching she has come to understand all different body types. And taken something useful from each of them. She offers options in her classes, so that less experienced and more experienced students can work at their own level. She finds that this helps people to listen to their bodies and make choices that suit them. This way you learn to follow different levels and know when to take a break and when to continue.
While she guides you through different yoga postures (asanas), pranayama (breathing) techniques and correct alignment, she brings yoga philosophy in her accessible and inspiring way and makes you aware of the observer, your intuition and that sense of wholeness, aliveness that belongs to daily life.. Themes you will most often find in her classes are: Authenticity, Truth, Gratitude, Compassion, Patience, Peace, Joy and Love.
