I am a certified international yoga alliance teacher based in Istanbul, Turkey. I have been practicing yoga for almost 30 years, and teaching for more than 10. I fell in love with yoga in my 20s because it was the only time where it felt like my mind stopped. Hooked on that feeling I have been exploring mind/body connection ever since. I am particularly interested in what I think of as embodiment - the experience of being powerfully in and connected to the strength, amazingness, spaciousness of your own body. We are already so much more than we often realize and yoga is a pathway to experience standing in our own light. I am so thankful to have had the chance to study with many amazing teachers, particularly Desiree Rumbaugh, Chris Chavez, Carlos Pomeda and Leslie Kaminoff (online). My practice and my teaching are always evolving as I learn more and realize how much there is to learn. I teach 2 primary types of classes which I believe are opposite sides o the same coin: Somatics - which focuses on slow, gentle movements that help the mind and the body reconnect in deep ways so has to release old patterns of movement and tension and make space for new things to evolve; and Vinyasa - with a focus on alignment, strength and the creation of space both physically and at all other levels. I believe in play and in experimentation; for me, new a-ha moments, both on and off the mat, come when I trust, connect, and explore. My classes are about bringing awareness and attention to how we move and connect to our bodies so that we can understand what brings each of us greater strength, freedom and joy. My goal is to help you release pain and tension and feel freer and stronger. Breathing, anatomy, movement and embodiment are a multi dimensional experience and journey that I am excited to share with you.
