I was raised in the traditions of Bhakti, Jnana and Karma Yoga and was inspired to undertake Raja Yoga teacher training after finding myself at Jivamukti Yoga Newtown and instantly feeling like I'd come home. I was so moved by the diversity of people coming together, the uplifting and soulful nature of the practice and most of all, how transformative and sublime every practice felt. The co-founders of Jivamukti Yoga, Sharon Gannon and David Life were students of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, who was taught by the great Shri Krishnamacharya. I would like to thank my teachers Katie Manitsas (founder of Jivamukti Yoga, Sydney), Idit Hefer-Tamir and Sarah de Graaf.
I have much affection for my beloved luminaries, from whom I am always learning, notably Swami Sivananda, Swami Vishnudevananda, Swami Satchitananda, Yogrishi Vishvaketu, Radhanath Swami and Jules Febre.
Speaking of teachers, I have to mention my little ones! They are so joyful, endlessly forgiving, abundant in energy and playful curiosity for life. They love with their whole being, without expectation or judgment. I try my very best to follow their example on and off the mat!
