I have been exploring yoga now for over 15 years and was first drawn to the more active styles of yoga that included postures or 'asanas' and various breathing techniques. While I was always fit and strong, there was another level of well-being that deep down I knew I was missing. In 2008 I was introduced to Esoteric Yoga.
Experiencing Esoteric Yoga was completely new for me as it was unlike all the other yoga classes I had attended. There was barely any movement and I was asked to stop and take the time to connect with my body. What I came to realise was that I wasn't very connected to my body and was often doing things yet mentally elsewhere. There was a state of dis-connection that I wasn't aware of and therefore didn't realise this was going on. At that time I wasn't used to feeling my body in this way and didn't know what the quality of stillness was or felt like.
What I was learning was to be 'consciously present', which is simply to keep my mind focused on what I was doing as I was doing it. Now while this sounds easy I discovered that if I didn't make this choice my mind could go anywhere and very fast. Each session would also allow me to choose to be present and experience a growing stillness within me. It was then up to me to apply the same choices I was making in the session to the rest of my day. Now every day is an opportunity to claim this quality of stillness and presence in whatever I am doing. I invite you to discover and enjoy Esoteric Yoga for yourself and experience the affect this can have on every part of your life.
My background in Yoga includes presenting Yoga, Body Awareness and Esoteric Yoga to individuals and groups in Australia and overseas. In 2004 I completed a Yoga Teacher Training Diploma in Integral Yoga and in 2008 I completed Level 1 Esoteric Yoga Training as taught by Serge Benhayon of Universal Medicine.
I live in Melbourne, Australia, working full-time in the education sector. Alongside presenting Esoteric Yoga and Body Awareness I also design and develop online educational programs for young people incorporating body awareness education, health and well-being. I am available for private sessions, workshops and programs, both face to face and online.
