I discovered Yin Yoga after an accident that left me immobile for 4 months. It was during my recovery that I began exploring different styles of yoga. During this time I discovered Paul Grilley and Yin Yoga. I became transformed by his theory of practice and skeletal variations. I soon discovered the teachings of Bernie Clark and Sarah Powers. I had the absolute pleasure of practising with Bernie Clark during my first training with Paul Grilley when Bernie was doing research for his book "Your Body Your Yoga". It was incredibly inspiring to spend 17 days in the presence of these two profound teachers. The privilege of training with Paul Grilley both in his Yin Yoga & Anatomy training as well as his Chakra and Meridian training has made me not only a better teacher but I believe a better person.
The beauty and power of Yin Yoga has changed my life, my practice and my teachings. It is my joy to pass this knowledge onto my students. I focus on energy meridians and chakras in my classes to move my students into a deeper yoga experience. My knowlege of skeletal differences allows me to individualize the poses for my students keeping them safe and inspired. I encourage my students to move fluidly in their practice, embracing the deeper sensations a pose can bring. Students begin to experience not only the physical benefits of their practice but the emotional and mental benefits as well.

"YogaMaya liberates oneself from the illusion of existence so that one is able to realize their true self."
Whether we are moving in a dynamic flow or holding in stillness a deep Yin pose it is essential that we begin as students to move away from focusing on the physical discomforts a pose can bring to a deeper awareness and meditation within the hold. It is through this awareness we can bring harmony and balance, not only into our practice, but into our lives.
When you are inspired by some great purpose, all your thoughts break their bonds; your mind transcends limitations, your consciousness expands in every direction, and you find yourself in a new, great and wonderful world. Dormant forces, faculties and talents become alive, and you discover yourself to be a greater person by far than you ever dreamed yourself to be.
