Yoga and Dance has always been a extensive part of my life. Both practices has helped me to nourish my whole self, being the Body, Mind and Spirit. I started practicing yoga at the age of 15 and when i was 21 my love of Middle Eastern dance began. These two beautiful practices have assisted me to generate this wonderful passion for life.
Yoga has lead me to be a more compassionate being and i am dedicated to helping people reach there full potential through Dance or Yoga. I love to inspire people in my community, to help build there self confidence, to support and to encourage each other to try new things. Dance has a beautiful way of connecting yourself deep into the present moment which enriches both the body and soul.
I also teach a wonderful fusion fitness workout called Bellyfit® that is designed for women. This is all the things a love drawn in to one awesome workout. I offer Yoga, Belly Dance and Bellyfit classes throughout the Nelson and Tasman region.
