Yoga for the Modern Body

Join me every week in Lisbon & Online for my signature group classes.

What is the "modern body"?

A lot of sitting & poor posture

  • Shortened front line (weak core, tight hips & chest)

  • Weak glutes & hamstrings 

  • Feels tight but lacks strength

  • Short, shallow breathing

Technology & lifestyle

  • Overly stressed & anxious

  • Dysregulated nervous system

  • Text neck (forward head syndrome)

  • Short, shallow breathing​

Why join my group classes:

The most important thing for me is to leave you feeling strong, stable and connected in your body

 

My own hypermobility has lead me to 4 main injuries throughout my life.

One day I decided to say stop to poses that I could feel were hurting my joints and prioritise strength and functionality over aesthetics. My teaching style took a turn and the question I ask myself now before every class I teach is: will this class make them into better movers OFF their mats?

Work with me 1-2-1

Humans are layered, complex beings. All aspects of our selves and our habits contribute to either building a healthy body or an unhealthy one.

I can teach you how to choose health. We work on all of your layers; your beliefs, your dreams, your limitations, your capabilities and we create the resilience that you and your body need to feel IN YOUR POWER.

1-2-1 work is the hardest but the most powerful. Are you ready to step into the shoes of your Highest Self?
