A love of dance started at Italia Conti Academy in 1987 and Toni hasn’t stopped learning and exploring new ways to enjoy movement ever since.
She trained and worked as Personal trainer and Sports massage therapist in 2003 and started yoga around this time in California.
Moving dynamically and without physical pain, with many techniques that worked to balance an overworked nervous system, ease anxiety to help decelerate the body and minds natural reactions was such a huge relief that Toni decided to share the transformative benefits of yoga, taking her first teacher training in 2012 and after graduating has been teaching and studying ever since.
Toni believes we are all students of yoga regardless of the number of years we have been doing it and that's what she loves about this sweet and timeless practice, there is always something new to discover about yourself through the process.
