Getting to know Philli
- How long have you been practicing and teaching yoga?
Practicing for what feels like many lifetimes, this lifetime however I have been consistently practicing for 5 years and I don’t plan on ever stopping. NEVEREVER. Teaching for 2 yrs.
- Your favourite pose and why?
All of the poses… they are all my favourite! At the moment I am absolutely LOVING Vṛścikāsana in Pincha Mayurasana (also know as Scorpion Pose). It reminds me to find the delicate strength necessary to step into being bold + courageous in connecting to + expressing myself.
- What phrase / alignment cue can students expect to hear from you in your class?
Something about drawing awareness to the feet (in particular the toes) they are badass and sophisticated and deserve our attention and probably a little extra love.
- Where will we find you off the mat?
BEING A WILD WOMAN IN NATURE. I love the wild, magical and rugged landscape of our home so I will be out exploring and seeing it for what it is. Bushwalking, canyoning, surfing, rock-climbing, gardening, meditating, and capturing it on film or using it as inspiration for visual art.
I love spending time with my beautiful friends, traveling, offering my energy and time as a disability support worker, cooking and feasting (vegan style) with good music.
- How old is the oldest pair of yoga pants in your wardrobe?
The oldest ones have sadly been put to rest so at the moment I would guess around 4 years.
- What are 3 things left to do on your bucket list?
1. Self Realization, and the attainment of Samadhi of course.
2. I really want to go Sky Diving and experience what it is to fly, even if it’s falling.
3. Live in and offer my energy and time to a rural indigenous community in Australia.
- What makes you laugh?
Jokes that are so bad they are good.
- What song do you love to dance too?
“Everybody loves the sunshine” – Roy Ayers … Real good 70’s groove, I dare you to try not to dance??
- What was your favourite childhood TV show?
- What did you eat for breakfast?
Lemon water, a colourful plate of spiced and cooked veggies and some homemade tulsi komucha.
