I have drawn inspiration and experience from a range of places, and seek to combine my passion for creativity and music with the art of yoga. Studying a variety of yoga styles for a number of years, i´ve been lucky enough to have met many great teachers along the way on and off the mat. This site is a collation of ongoing study of yoga through the blog, tracking my (somewhat excruciating)

progress, mishaps and “adventures” as a teacher and student during my transition abroad, hopefully learning something in the process. There is a collection of playlists curated for classes or listening pleasure, information about yoga events curated in galleries and landmarks, a current and past projects calendar including DJ work and writing, and more. Please feel free to have a look around and ask me anything, keep in touch and many thanks for stopping by.

  2. Hey Dionne =)

    I used to take your yoga classes at SIB, and I loved them! I have learned so much about yoga and life. I used to study something I did not enjoy, because I thought that was what I “needed” to do. During that year of school, I look forward to your yoga classes; Thought of them as my time to recharge my positive energy. So, I want to thank you for……being you! =)

    For bringing your lively, positive and open spirit to your yoga classes. For shearing your experiences in life and your knowledge. For telling your class that we are perfect just the way we are =D” I always went out of your class feeling perfect =) happy about myself… ~ in peace with myself.

    I am now chasing my dreams~I don’t know if I will reach them, but I feel happy anyway =) Because I am listening to my body~ my heart and mind; Im listening to what I want! and that feels great… Thank you for teaching me how to listen”

    I wish you all the luck on your new projects =)
    May your life be filled with love and happiness”~

    Thankful regards form a person you have inspired and encouraged;
