My Yoga teachings follow those of Krishnamacharya and his son Desikachar, based on the principles of Viniyoga. This approach is uniquely suited to adapt to the needs of any individual or group context, from the healthiest and most athletic student, to a gentle therapeutic practice for students with health issues, those who live with trauma or chronic conditions.
This methodology provides an experiential application of the Yoga Sutras through Asana and Pranayama, unfolding in a multi-layered, developmental practice that prioritises the breath as a primary tool to influence our emotional, mental, energetic and physical states.
“Some disturbances will respond to Āsana. Some of the more resistant, to Prāṇāyāma.”
– T Krishnamacharya
Since I started teaching in 2012 my relationship with Yoga has evolved in different ways, being influenced by certain teachers I find inspiring, but I keep trusting and coming back to the roots that Krishnamacharya tradition has given me and I am forever grateful to my teachers for brightening my path. I hope I can brighten someone else’s in return.
Honesty, respect, compassion and unconditional positive regard are humanist and yogic values that I try to reflect in my classes, also in the way I live my life and my relationships.
I teach independently, mostly private classes across Edinburgh and I am also honoured to be part of “Edinburgh Community Yoga” Outreach team, working on helping to make Yoga accessible to everyone, no matter their economic status or their physical/mental health state.
