"Having experienced and grown up with PTSD and anxiety, yoga helped me to find peace and guided me through my times of darkness. My motivation as a teacher is to help my students to let go of whats holding them back; self doubt, anxiety, negative thinking patterns and negative habitual patterns and guide them on a transformative path to open up their heart, to laugh, love, heal, forgive and cultivate lasting peace and happiness in life.
I feel that an important part of living the yoga path and finding peace is to lose ourselves in the service of others. That is why I am so proud to be an ambassador for Corc Yoga, who genuinely care about supporting mental health projects and also creating sustainable, eco friendly yoga products."
