I’ve been practicing Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga since 2009 when I was living abroad in Cape Town, South Africa. I’ve been privileged to study throughout the world with David Swenson, Matthew Sweeney, Eddie Stern, Ty Landrum, and most recently, David Robson and Jelena Vesić of Ashtanga Yoga Centre of Toronto. I completed my 200-hr RYT certification with Paul Dallaghan at Centered Yoga/Samahita Retreat in Thailand back in 2012. Since then, I’ve continued my pranayama studies under his tutelage and that of his teacher, Sri O.P. Tiwari, completing my 500-hr teacher training in 2015. I turn to Paul Dallaghan for my pranayama studies and Tim Feldmann of Miami Life Center for asana and philosophy. My own teaching is notable for my ample encouragement, constant discipline, and even (gasp!) the occasional joke.
