How I came to teach private Yoga lessons
A few years after I trained and started teaching in one of Southeast Asia's top yoga studios in Bangkok, Yoga Elements, in 2003, I left studio teaching to concentrate on
teaching private lessons and small groups.
I soon realised, yoga sessions tailored to an individual's needs, are very much in-line with the ancient yoga tradition. The more I devoted myself to my own daily practice,
the more I discovered my strength as a teacher, in being able to recognise and identify with a student’s bodily and mental state within a very short space of time.
My lessons have become, almost like a laboratory, in which exploration is the key. This process of inquiry leads to the most important aspect of yoga: home-practice. From
day one, I encourage students to work towards having the confidence and the tools to be able to sustain this home-practice.
It is therefore hardly surprising, that every individual I teach, has unique requirements from a yoga session. Over the years, I have had the pleasure of teaching the young
and the elderly, the physically fit and those out-of-condition or with sport’s injuries. I am also glad to say that I have managed to help high-achieving individuals in very
This tailor-made approach to teaching, is the foundation of my learning process and the fire that nurtures my desire for self-inquiry and contemplation.

Perfection is never good enough; the more we try, the less we are.
I teach Hatha yoga which is a broad term used to describe any physical form of yoga.
Over the years, I have studied, and continue to study various branches of Hatha yoga worldwide, including India, with some of the world’s most renowned teachers. The
natural process of learning never ceases!
In addition to my daily yoga practice, that begins in the early hours of the morning, the other central elements of my life include being a mother to an amazing son - my
utmost teacher, daily forest walks, unschooling, bio-hacking and reading and writing. These elements have all helped me find my voice as a teacher and have enhanced
and refined my teaching skills.
