In brief I spend my days as a yoga therapist traveling and working mainly with private clients of all ages and abilities, including pregnancy and children. I also specialize in Yoga Therapy for Autism Spectrum, special needs, ADHD, anxiety related disorders and depression, injury rehabilitation yoga and post-cancer treatment yoga. Every day I pride myself on learning from my clients and students, my research and studying, and my daily mindfulness practices and meditation.
I also run Indiv Yoga™ Switzerland on Lake Geneva and on the coast of Portugal. Anyone looking to become a yoga teacher get in touch!, various workshops and the
I was introduced to yoga and zen buddhist meditation when I was 13 years old growing up in London. I`ll tell you more about how and why in another post, but suffice to say that over 21 years later it is my passion and I`ve been lucky enough to have studied with so many of the best teachers around the world.
I did my psychology degree in London, worked in PR & Events there, then went to work in New York and Portugal before settling in Geneva, Switzerland. I now have a beautiful studio as my base that overlooks a river and woodland, 5 minutes from Lake Geneva and 15 minutes from the mountains 🙂
Besides that I have 2 beautiful cats Poss & Milky, that often join me during my personal practice time to create a distraction and force me to focus harder! My husband works in finance so we balance each other out with our differences in character, lifestyle and routine!
My goal is to try to balance my contemporary western lifestyle with the wonderful benefits and
joy the traditions of yoga bring me. I hope It`s not easy with all the wonderful distractions the modern world brings us, but I hope I can help bring the same to you, and we can smile and support each other in this online community.
If you want more information or help about me, my studio, my commitments or the work I do, please feel free toat any time.
