I was born and raised in South Africa; MY family moved to Seattle 13 years ago. Before moving to Seattle I was a high school PE and Social Studies teacher.
Teaching people to be active and healthy is my passion. I coached high school dance, field hockey, and swim teams, and mom-&-toddler fitness classes. I used to do many different kinds of exercises and got injured regularly because I was very competitive and had no body awareness. So, I decided to take a few months off and only do yoga. I signed up for my first power class and was addicted. I love how physically challenging and restorative this practice is.
I did my 200hr Teacher Training with Shakti Vinyasa (Baron Baptiste Inspired Vinyasa yoga), recognized by the worldwide Yoga Alliance in 2014. I have since then added Restorative Yoga and Myofascial release classes to her practice and teaching.
I am co-founder and Content Director for Pineapple Online.
