WHAT STYLE OF YOGA WILL I LEARN?
Our course focuses on many different lineages of Yoga to give you a very broad and well rounded education. Hatha, Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Sivananda, Iyengar, Yoga Synergy, and more. Not only Yoga and Reiki, but we will also incorporate other forms of movement like: Kung Fu, Tai Chi/Qi Gong, and Dance.
Guided by the Grace of the Guru… The Guru can come in many forms and in many ways. A teacher. A book. A video. A website. An experience. It came to me after spending almost 20 years traveling around the world, as both a teacher and a forever student.
Before I started teaching Yoga, I also taught English as a foreign language and lived in Poland, Peru, South Korea, Mexico, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, and traveled extensively through each respected continent. While traveling, I practiced many subjects on both a physical and a metaphysical level. I am now an experienced and successful Yoga teacher, Reiki Master, Kung Fu Master, Hap Ki Do Master, certified Balinese Masseuse, and Travel Writer. Traveling for this long and living in so many diverse countries was a thought-provoking and life changing experience that showed me exactly what Yoga can be.
“It’s an irritating reality that many places and events defy description. Angkor Wat and Machu Picchu, for instance, seem to demand silence, like a love affair you can never talk about. For a while after, you fumble for words, trying vainly to assemble a private narrative, an explanation, a comfortable way to frame where you’ve been and whats happened. In the end, you’re just happy you were there – with your eyes open – and lived to see it.”– Anthony Bourdain
Over 10 years ago, I started practicing Yoga in Puerto Escondido, Mexico when I met celebrity Yoga instructor, Byron Miller. About 6 or 7 years ago, I moved to Cape Town, South Africa to study Hatha Yoga and Yoga Synergy under Jim Harrington and completed my 200 hour, Yoga Teacher Training course. Jim is an incredible teacher, very humble and extremely knowledgable, and has been labeled as one of South Africa’s Master Yoga teachers. Cape Town was a very educational time for me as I not only practice with Jim, but also with Core Power Yoga co-founder, Dave Porter, and became a Reiki Master under a phenomenal woman, Louise Westerhout.
Becoming good friends with Jim and loving his teaching style, I became fascinated with Yoga and wanted more. I went on to complete my 500 hour Yoga Teacher Training course. Jim is originally from Australia and found his calling with Yoga Synergy creators Simone Borg Olivier and Bianca Macchliss. Jim brought Simon to Cape Town where I met and practiced directly under him. Simon is one of the only people on the planet to practice with Yoga legends, BKS Iyengar and Sri K Pattabhi Joic. Simon has been teaching Yoga for over 30 years and has traveled all over the world spreading the wisdom he gained from his teachers. He is not only world renowned, and rightfully so, but also an amazing person and a joy to learn from.
The 500 hour course took me to India, where I practiced with many more thought provoking teachers. One of them being Swamiji Sajeevan Arakkal Manoharan in Fort Kochin. Swamiji focuses on Vedantic studies, Hatha Yoga, Sivananda Yoga, Pranayama and Meditation. He is pure magic and unlike any teacher I’ve ever had before. After India, I wanted to practice Ashtanga Yoga and learn the Primary Series so I spent two months in Bali at the Ashtanga Research Center practicing under Dylan Bernstein. Dylan has practiced Zen Buddhism and Yoga from a very early age. After one month of daily practice, I had learned almost the complete Primary Series.
The combination of all of these truly inspiring and thought provoking teachers, in addition with Reiki and a long history of martial arts, has shaped my own practice and teaching style in a unique way.
After practicing under so many different teachers each with their own unique point of view, I knew I wanted to bring the same holistic education to my students. So I got in touch with my friends, my teachers, and asked them to join the teacher training. Almost all of them replied with a resounding, "Yes!" And this is what makes Nomad Yoga truly special, because while I might be considered the "lead teacher," Nomad Yoga is nothing without the combination and collaboration of all of the other teachers on board.
