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, and hopes that you step off the mat feeling refreshed, nourished and balanced.

Effie is also a certified Chakra Healing Practitioner, using breath work, visualisation, crystals and mantra/sound healing; all of which aim to promote natural self-healing, relieving pain and enhancing personal awareness. When not on her mat, she can be found chasing her little daughter around.
