Teaching since 2011, my goal is to give you the tools you need so that you too, can heal yourself. Availing myself to continuous philosophical, spiritual and physical education from various disciplines, I weave thought provoking messages throughout my classes. I apply the ancient wisdom to our contemporary western world in a useful and understandable way that will not only connect you back to yourself, but also the universe at large. You will walk out feeling encouraged to find a deeper connection with your body and empowered to live life gracefully on all levels. I use the physical body as a medium to the only thing that this practice is invested in; the ability and the art of letting go.
Born in Turkey, grew up in England, and having spent many years in LA, I currently live in New York City and hope you will join me on the yoga mat or the meditation cushion soon, be it in class, a workshop or a retreat near you.
My yoga trainings include 500hrs through The Kaivalya Yoga Method (Alanna Kaivalya), as well as continuing my education with my second 500hrs through Yoga Medicine (Tiffany Cruikshank). I also hold a certification through Yoga Tune Up® (Jill Miller). My meditation trainings include The Power of Awareness Mindfulness Training (Tara Brach & Jack Kornfield) as well as being a dedicated Vipassana meditator in the lineage of S.N. Goenka. I’ve taken intensives with senior teachers which include Max Strom, Elena Brower and Maty Ezraty.
Why I practice meditation:
To return home.
Why I teach meditation:
To help people open up to possibility.
