My journey...

Body of Breath, Senses, Mind & Heart – a Continuum of Being, Instrument of the Soul

 

Endless exploration with a deep love and reverence to these ancient teachings and to all of my teachers; all the things known and unknown, Mother Nature, our innate nature and all about this Life, falling into a wholeness and plenitude.

To me this is the pathless path of spiritual life/ Essence of Life. Journey of healing, purifying, transformation, alignment and 

eventually self-realisation.

Areas of my studies include the practices and wisdom from traditional Yoga, Tantra, Ayurveda & Advaita Vedanta

 

I am over 1800 hours trained and certified in Traditional Hatha (Satyananda and Krishnamacharya tradition), Tantra /Kundalini, Chakra, Kriya Yoga & Mantra/, Yoga Sutras, Yin & Restorative Yoga, Advanced Pranayama, Pre & Postnatal Yoga, Yoga Nidra,

Meditation & Ayurveda.

I had, and still have, the privilege to learn and study for about 12 years now with Swami Atma Gyanam Saraswati from The Yoga Tree, Swami Nihchalananda and his team from Mandala Ashram, Katherine Girling & Everett Newell from Zuna Yoga,

Rod Stryker from Para Yoga and many more.

In 2018 over the period of 10 months I have been initiated into Kriya Yoga through the lineage of Swami Satyananda at Mandala Ashram. Shortly after that, I started to co-run Happy Om Studio in the centre of Norwich.

Over the period of two years (2020-2021) I have completed 300 hours of Vedic studies of Yoga, Ayurveda, Mantra and Meditation with Dr. David Frawley, which entitles me to be a Yoga & Ayurveda Wellness Consultant.

Current Svadhyaya (self-study):

Nada Yoga - Yoga of Sound - exploring Mantra, Raga and Kirtan with Sacred Sound Lab since 2020

Kriya Yoga & Chakra Dharana -one year long mentorship in  2021 and now my ongoing personal commitment

All of these studies and most importantly my personal inner work and experiences has created a holistic approach to what I share and live…

At the core of my offerings lies an intention. So these teachings, which have been passed on and through me, will inspire your heart and mind to descend into the exploration of knowing ourselves on deeper levels of our being.

You will be invited to welcome yourself into these practices as you are and start from this very place…

To slow down from the busyness of day-to-day life. To quieten our mind and to re-connect. To remember our innate nature which rests in effortless awareness.

For intensifying and, most importantly, sustaining this freedom and creative field through movement, awareness, breath,

subtle body practices & self-inquiry.

Whether it is healing, purifying, transforming, inspiring or tapping into the unknown I look forward to sharing  with you.

I believe with reverence and commitment of yourself, through these practices, Yoga reveals itself, allows us to receive its spark of insight, clarity and richness to this sacred life.

Weaving these threads together has been, and will continue to be, my life’s purpose.

When I am not practising, teaching or studying yoga, you will most likely find me walking in the woods, spending time with my favourite people and my cat Madhu (sweetness in Sanskrit), looking after my indoor jungle (I have almost 100 plants!), gardening, playing harmonium, reading, taking photographs, knitting, crocheting and being with

All That Is.

At the core of your being, beyond mind, beyond body, lies your true nature.

A sparkle of light, a sparkle of energy, totally peaceful, at one with the world.

Playful. Innocent. Gentle. Generous. Loving. Wise.
