She says she found herself again in yoga.  Yoga has given her a new lease of life, she’d long forgotten.  She feels alive and happy when she is on the mat.  Yoga has taught her to love her body and embrace her ‘flaws’.  Yoga has inspired her to follow her dreams.  When she first experienced the joys of yoga it dawned on her that more people need to know about it.  She couldn’t believe that such an incredible thing exists.  She wishes she knew about it in her teens especially when she fell and hit her coccyx at the age of 12, but she embraces her past and is so happy she knows about yoga now.

Prior to this she studied Computer Science at uni and worked as a Business Intelligence Analyst in IT for a multinational company for several years before deciding to follow her other passions.  The physical and mental rewards experienced through yoga have been rewarding and life changing. She aims to bring these benefits to others in a safe and productive environment with a sense of fun and enjoyment. Her teaching style is drawn from various styles of yoga and focuses on alignment and using props where necessary to help achieve the posture (asana). The classes will help build strength, stability, flexibility and mental calm.

Currently, she is teaching yoga classes in Nairobi, Kenya.  If you’re interested in coming to a yoga class please call +254 7016 03995.
