“It’s not about becoming something different, it’s about becoming more of who you truly are. Learning from your past, creating your future, and unlocking your strength from within. This isn’t yoga that stops when you leave the studio. From the mat to the street to the office to your home, this is yoga for your whole self.”

About Whole Self

Whole self is a revolutionary approach to strengthening your body, your mind, and your life. By incorporating energizing yoga, robust nutrition, and a positive, uplifting mindset, Whole Self was created to help people unlock who they are and create their fullest life.

Whole Self is a practical approach to yoga, nutrition, and self-care that is grounded in theory but has been adapted to the needs of modern life. With over a decade of teaching and refining this practice, I’ve focused on developing an experience that isn’t just a philosophy that works within the confines of a studio, but a framework that will help support the self-care needs of your full life.

It was created for every person to not just care for their body or their mind, but their Whole Self.

The Whole Self Experience

All aspects of the Whole Self experience were designed with your success in mind: the physical accomplishments, mental clarity, and excitement for what the future holds. Through this experience, you’ll open up possibilities not just for yoga but for your whole life. The fundamentals you learn will provide a framework that you can adapt to both your life and the lives of those around you.

You become the driver of the change you want to see using the Whole Self tools and method.  Through dynamic sequences and classes, you feel energized by what is physically possible. Through a focus on nutrition education, you gain a deeper understanding of how to further support physical health.

Through mindset work, you not only clear away the mental clutter but you begin to see what is possible and how you can get there.

The Whole Self framework leaves you equipped to make the most of your day, inside and outside of the studio.

Become everything you are meant to be: confident, happy, healthy, and grounded.

The Philosophy

In creating Whole Self, I based it on these central philosophies:

Nutrition

Eating a healthy, nutrient dense diet is crucial for your health and daily energy. Rather than focusing on what you shouldn’t eat, Whole Self focuses on what you should eat: more plant based meals that support the physical work you do through yoga and a study into the Ayurvedic way of eating.

Movement

The Whole Self yoga sequences are inspired by Vinyasa flow and were created to be an energizing and physically challenging flow that can be tailored based on students level. These sequences provide an active, full body experience that strengthens through stretching, breathing, lengthening, and opening.

Mindfulness and meditation

Results that you see through your body and your health will become amplified when you incorporate daily inspiration into your life through mindfulness and meditation.

Lifestyle

The changes that you create through Whole Self will permeate into a new and exciting lifestyle. From a renewed sense of energy to a focus on your unique strengths, goals, and passion, we focus on designing a lifestyle that feels authentic to you.

I am so excited to share Whole Self with you, but first, let me share a little about myself. I’m an internationally recognized yoga instructor, nutrition expert, published author, and the creator of Whole Self. I created Whole Self after seeing a need for more modern, energetic, and uplifting self-care and yoga training that would address the needs of daily life.

I was a burnt out mom of 4, and every day was a repeat. I was taking care of everyone else and forgot who I was, what I wanted, and who I wanted to become. Once I started to incorporate self-care into my daily life, my true, authentic self was able to breathe. From this space, this is where I re-discovered not only who I was, but my passions came alive. I started to live for me.

I became a certified yoga instructor after completing training under Baron Baptiste (founder of the Baptiste Power Vinyasa Yoga Institute and one of America’s top yoga instructors). I studied for a Certification in Plant-Based Nutrition from Cornell University and I’m also a Certified Holistic Health Counsellor through the Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN) in New York City, the world’s largest nutrition school.

I’ve since had the privilege of teaching my style of yoga in multiple countries, I’ve led festivals, retreats, and London based teacher training. I’ve published 4 books, including cookbooks and most recently, a book on self-care. My 80 person London yoga classes, which serve as the foundation for Whole Self, are regularly sold out.
