Coming from a martial arts background you would find resemblance in certain movements in my classes. The mental aspects and philosophies in the martial arts, where they train their minds as well as their bodies, is an important part of my classes as well. In my yoga, contemporary, jazz (also modern-jazz, burlesque, heels) and ballet lessons I offer a space of trust and encouragement. The focus lays not only in executing a movement in the correct way according to the technique, but especially on the somatic approach. If it comes out of a true origin inside the body, it will naturally bring the desired results.
