What makes your class so f’cking awesome?
The music, the flow, the fun (because it actually is!), I put a lot of thought into a class before actually teaching it, it’s a magical combination.
What was your journey to becoming an instructor? How the hell did you get here?
I cartwheeled my way around the world with Argentina’s gymnastics team before settling in London 20 years ago. I’ve been practising yoga ever since and 8 years ago decided to train as a teacher. My vinyasa classes focus on breath work and alignment, as well as restorative yin yoga elements, but mainly aim to be fun and enjoyable whilst giving you the motivation to greatly improve your practice. Prepare to sweat, stretch, relax, laugh and breathe.
What’s your favourite way to keep a healthy body and a healthy mind?
Dancing. To disco music! Smiling. Always offering a smile to friends or strangers. Practising some Forrest yoga, some Vinyasa, a bit of boxing and riding my bike around London.
What is your signature move?
I enjoy a crow shoot back. Also a handstand chaturanga landing. A common mistake is often yogis try and shoot back into a high plank (landing with arms extended) but actually this is not necessary. If you shoot back straight into chaturanga (elbows bended back) you have a bigger chance to land safely and also you are protecting your joints (shoulders, elbows and wrists) while you build strength around the arms and shoulders muscles.
What’s your favourite way to feel good fitness-wise and life wise?
Being positive. Practising kindness.
Dancing to ABBA at full volume when I’m at home by myself.
