Firstly, I would love to share my hatha yoga practice so I can help you get stronger mentally and physically. To be more flexible and to be truly in a moment while allowing the mind and the body to fully relax in Savasana. Final relaxation pose, also known as the Corpse Pose.

What Do I Love?
I certainly love to giggle.
Love nature and explore the world while meeting incredible people. Climbed Kilimanjaro in 2015. That is to say, was one of the most extraordinary spiritual experiences I have ever had.
April 2020 was the date when I returned from a 20-month worldwide solo journey. As a result, I changed profoundly on a spiritual, emotional and physical level.
What is my favourite quote?
‘Feel the fear and do it anyway’ by Suzan Jeffers.
Firstly, to remind students that yoga practice encourages them to accept themselves for who they are rather than for who they ‘should be’.

What My Clients Say About Mind & Body Flex
What Can You Expect In My Classes?
During my classes, you can certainly expect understanding and freedom to be yourself. I adjust to my students. Therefore, I like to combine elements of breathing and cleansing exercises, physical movements and relaxation techniques. Lastly, welcome and treat anyone equally, regardless of who they are or how long they have been practising yoga.
Be assured, the teaching place is free of judgement, jealousy, anger, hate and competition. In other words, I encourage my students to let go of expectations. Moreover, it’s my role as a teacher to guide you. Just come along and try it.
What if you like it?
* Always consult your doctor before you start any treatment if in doubt.
How Did It All Begin?
Firstly, I used to be very competitive and attended a variety of high-intensity classes. One day I wanted to try a yoga class. To sum up, I had no expectations although I was pretty sceptical. During the class, my inflexibility horrified me. There was certainly no flow or gentleness in my movements. However, the relaxation at the end of the class was so wonderful because it allowed me to finally calm my mind. I let go of the expectations and gave myself permission to rest.
That was the beginning of my yoga encounter. I never looked back. Although I started yoga purely to stretch my physical body, over the years I learnt more. About myself and other non-physical elements of yoga. The discovery never ends. Moreover, it goes on and on and that is exactly what I love about yoga. For instance, as a teacher, I am constantly learning something new from others. That is to say, my students are my BEST teachers.
