For Philli yoga is a way of life and a state of being. The non-dualistic experience of unification that yoga offers, has been the most nourishing inclusion in supporting and celebrating our existence and awakening. It is both the space holder and the stabilizer as we master the dynamism of the beauty and the challenges that we may encounter throughout our lives. Passionately inspired by the teachings that follow the tradition of Tantra from the Kashmir Shaivism lineage, Philli honours the potency of these teachings and offers them to our community to share the liberation and joy of the science and practice of Yoga.
Beyond the mat, studying the yoga philosophy, Ayurveda and meditation Philli enriches her life by adventuring and being active in nature, drawing and offering her time working with children with disability.
Forever a student, the love for experiential learning runs deep. Philli completed her 200hr YTT with Ana Forrest, her advanced 300hr Embodied Flow YTT with Tara Judelle, has studied Foundations of 5 Element Theory, and has also studied with master teachers Rod Stryker, Sally Kempton, Carlos Pomeda, Andrea Boni and Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen.
Astonished by the sophisticated nature of the human organism, Philli feels that the body is a cloak for our creative consciousness and that it is the perfect vehicle for awakening to the vast possibilities of this life.
As a facilitator, Philli guides her students into anatomical and energetic explorations in-order to focus attention inwards, creating a greater overall body-mind connection. Philli’s classes are woven with pranayama, bhanda, kriyas, meditation and yoga philosophy as a means for offering the true essence of yoga. Always striving to create a safe and nurturing environment for discovery and transformation Phillis orientation is to empower students with the agency to curate their own vitality through becoming more aware of their true nature.
