Yoga started for me at my very own home, in the lounge to YouTube videos. I had heard all about the physical and mental benefits of yoga and I was surprised that it was the spiritual side of the traditional practice that fueled my fire and took my practice a little deeper.
Mostly self taught and eager to learn, I took myself to Rishikesh, India to complete my Yoga Teacher Training. Although I went only with the intention to deepen my own spiritual practice, I surprised myself again and decided that I wanted to share what I have learned and to start teaching.
For years I felt out of my comfort zone attending public yoga classes. Yoga has taught me to turn my fear into faith and I want to help others to do the same.
Yogabee started for me teaching private classes from home and has organically grown into what it is today. I now have more space and more opportunity to share my classes with more people.
Yogabee is a safe space. Our little Boutique Yoga Sanctuary in the heart of Whanganui.
Yoga is a personal practice and it is most important to feel comfortable and calm in your class. My intention is to offer a friendly, fun and non-judgmental practice for my students letting go of any expectation as we move and breathe together.
Trained under the tutelage of the wise and respected Gurus of Rishikul Yogshala, I want to share my knowledge of and understading various traditional subjects including Hatha Yoga, Ashtanga Yoga, Pranayama, Meditation, Yoga Philosophy, Yoga Nidra, Mantra Yoga and Adjustment and Alignment.
I am an Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher (E-RYT® 200) with Yoga Alliance which acknowledges the successful graduation and the completion of a yoga teacher training with a Registered Yoga School (RYS) and have taught at least 1,000 hours over a minimum of two years.

Forever a student and learning more from my own students in every class, I’m enjoying the journey.
