MY YOGA JOURNEY

My yoga journey started in 2013. Like a lot of other people, I started yoga as a mean to enhance my flexibility, balance and strength. At the time I was living in Lisbon and I thought yoga would be good for my surfing. After my first classes, which I took on Youtube, I could feel a positive change in my body and I was hooked on yoga. From that time onward, yoga became part of my routine.
Advancing deeper into the practice, I understood that there is more to yoga than just the physical practice. Therefore, I knew I wanted to do a teacher training someday, not only to deepen my practice and my understanding of yoga, but I also liked the idea of sharing my knowledge and passion for movement with others. This thought was somewhere in the back of my mind over the years and in the end of 2017, I decided it is time and I signed up for a teacher training. In February 2018, I finally travelled to Goa, India, and completed a 200hr Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training with Trimurti Yoga.

Right after I came back from India, I started to teach friends in the park and soon after I went on to rent a room, where I taught one class per week. As I found more and more joy in teaching, I expanded my schedule and added more classes.

Knowing that Yoga and studying is a life-long journey, I joined an advanced teacher training with Trimurti Yoga in Bali, in summer 2019. This 300hr teacher training was not just another Vinyasa training. For this training I decided to expand my view and go for a Yin&Yang training combined with the 5 Elements of Ayurveda and Traditional Chinese Medicine. This allowed me to explore and dive deeper into the Yin side of my practice, which is usually dominated by Yang styles. Through the training I was able to learn more about acupressure points, the meridians and the different elements in both theories.

As physical activities have always been a big part of my life, my practice and teaching is still more on the physical side. However, from time to time, pranayama and meditation will find its way into the classes. In general, my teaching can be described as a dynamic and alignment-oriented flow with a balanced mix of strength and flexibility. Hereby, my aim is to create a safe environment, so students can explore and learn about the capabilities of their own body. The final goal is to build strength and balance in the mind and body, in order to flow with ease.
