Anatomy Training for People Who Don’t Like Anatomy (Yet) !

This year Movement by Design founder Luke Bryan and I have partnered to create and facilitate a new kind of anatomy training for yoga teachers.  Rather than asking teachers to memorize muscle origins and insertions or scripted alignment cues, we challenge teachers to think critically about what good movement means and how to achieve it.  We focus on teaching movement principles that hold true whether you are extending into a backbend or diving under an olympic lift.   So how did an Olympic Lifting coach and a yoga teacher meet and decide to develop training together in the first place?  Well, funny […]

Yin Yoga Summer Newsletter

Hello Yin Yogis! This is the time of year when I schedule next year, which is a little bit stressful and a little bit exciting all at the same time. So, I’m taking the opportunity to share the details of my final events of 2015 and to give you a preview of some of the highlights of 2016!   Class Schedule Changes: I have been with Ohana Yoga for over four years and I’ve watched this beautiful yoga community grow and then outgrow its cosy space in Albert Park.  So, Ohana is moving to Bay St in Port Melbourne.  The […]

Want more Yin workshops or training? Here’s what’s on for Spring!

As the brilliant dancer and choreographer Martha Graham said, “Movement never lies.  It is a barometer telling the state of the soul’s weather to all who can read it.” In Melbourne spring, the weather can be all over the place and I feel my own internal barometric pressure rising and falling like crazy!  One minute I’m wildly enthusiastic.  The next I’m flat.  One day I move fluidly and joyfully through my yoga practice, and the next everything feels like effort and struggle.  If the way we move does reflect our inner state, then maybe the way we move can also […]

A Weekend of Yin/Yang Yoga 10-12 July at MOVE Yoga!

I am incredibly excited to run a weekend of Yin and Yang workshops at MOVE Yoga 10-12 July, 2015 with international yoga teacher David Kim.  David is a Senior Teacher Trainer for LA-based YogaWorks studio and leads his own YogaWise Yin Yoga TT Worldwide. David and I met years ago at a Paul Grilley training and found that we had a lot in common!  Among other things we share a background in journalism which makes us want to investigate things – to understand not just the what but the why.  That spirit of inquiry compels us both to search for innovation within […]

New Class Schedule!

I’ve always valued stability. But sometimes I get stuck. In the stillness of Yin Yoga I feel what moves within me and understand when it’s time to let go. After several years and some wonderful experiences at Grass Roots Yoga, I am heading in a new direction. You can still find me weekly at Power Living Union St and Ohana Yoga in Albert Park. And I’m excited to announce that on Thursday February 26 I join the team at MOVE Yoga in CBD where I will be offering Yin and Flow classes 4 times a week. I am really inspired […]
