As an avid learner, her practice has helped her grow stronger and become more mindful on and off the mat. In her classes, Effie encourages growth of the physical and spiritual self. She hopes that you step off the mat feeling refreshed, nourished and balanced.

The aim of these is to promote natural self-healing, pain relief and to enhance personal awareness. When not on her mat, you can normally find Effie chasing her little daughter around.
