Hello, I'm delighted to share a brief version of my journey with yoga with you.
I took my first yoga class in 1991 in Victoria, Canada and dabbled in and out of a yoga practice for the next few years. In 1995 I became a more serious student and in 2000 trained in Sivananda Hatha Yoga in Nassau, The Bahamas. I started teaching shortly afterwards and taught for a few years.
Then in 2005 I was introduced to the influence of Scaravelli Yoga through my teacher Louise Simmons. Through my adaptation of this yoga style I enjoyed the exploration of the breath, the spine and the use of gravity in the practice. My teaching changed and developed quite considerably. I attended several workshops with other Scaravelli teachers including Diane Long and Sophy Hoare. If I am to recommend any book on yoga I would say read these two. There is a lightness and delight contained in the pages. And what I learnt by integrating Vanda’s teaching into my own practice is to trust my own body. To listen and respond it’s inherent wisdom. And to be kind and beautiful in my practice.
In 2013 our family went to live on a remote Island called Erraid on the west coast of Scotland. This new life in the inner hebrides gave me a break from teaching Yoga. When I returned to Findhorn a year later, I could not find the right keynote for my own practice, and found I had lost the desire to teach.
I was growing in awareness that my body was no-longer the young 20 something yoga bunny it had once been, and something had become stuck and stale in how I saw myself on my yoga mat. It was a dry empty period with very little yoga. I attended a few classes and workshops with other teachers, would briefly be inspired, but would slip back into this dark place of not having a true practice for myself that worked for my mind, my soul, as well as my body.
Then in the spring of 2017 we went on a three month family trip to Hawaii and Canada. For the fun of it, because Yoga outside on a beach platform in Hawaiian temperatures can be quite different from a dreary Scottish climate, I found myself back into practicing everyday - I was delighted to be on my mat again. The teaching styles, expertise and techniques varied tremendously and I didn't care. I experienced a kind of wild abandon into all sorts of classes: hot yoga, bikram, power yoga, ashtanga, Iyenga, Hatha, Yin, Vinyasa. I tried them all. I let go of all notion of what is right or wrong in yoga. This exploration of being a yoga junkie continued throughout the trip, because of the abundance of yoga studios to be found in every major Canadian city. I tasted them all.
It was refreshing to let go of any preconceived idea of what Yoga is or isn't. To see where my mind got in the way of just loving each moment. It was delightful to really forget being a teacher and become a student. Once home and still on my mat, I continued by trying out yoga videos on YouTube. And despite all this activity and exploration, I was still hungry for something in my practice that was eluding me.
A few months after our big trip, I was live-streaming the videos from the Netherlands retreat of a spiritual teacher called Bentinho Massaro. In the retreat, each morning a yoga teacher called Ayla gave a class. I gave it a go and was astonished at what stiffness and rigidity was revealed. I'd been doing yoga for years; more recently practicing yoga intensively, every day for months. What was this quiet, very simple and very still practice that showed up in my joints in a completely new way? It turns out that Ayla Sarnoff was teaching Kaiut Yoga. I was hooked. I found out as much as I could. I kept practicing with the rotation of the five classes Ayla gave at the retreat by listening to them repeatedly on my own at home.
Then in September 2017, I flew to Toronto to start the first module of the Kaiut Yoga teacher training with founder Francisco Kaiut. A new passion for yoga was ignited, and the questions I was holding were being answered, and more interesting questions were arising, an exploration was begining. The deep spiritual understanding of yoga was being met with body postures that brought me closer to consciousness itself.
And with this new passion for Yoga, I'm now delighted to be teaching again, to be able to offer this Kaiut practice to others. And I have a deep bow of gratitude and continue to be informed and influenced by the lineage of yoga and teachers who have all helped and supported me to this place.
And as life would have it, I left Findhorn in 2018 and I'm now living with my family on Vancouver Island where I had my very first Yoga class all those years ago. I welcome you to my practice, my yoga studio and my recordings.
