For as long as I can remember, I had always felt uncomfortable in my skin. I felt out of place in life, as though I was on the outside looking in. I felt incredibly shy, introverted, lacking in confidence, uncertain and insecure. I was completely unskilled and unaware of how to meet my hypersensitive nature. I continually looked outward, deferring my power to others, somehow hoping that something or someone would save me.
Some ten-or-so years ago, I realised that I could no longer continue living in a destructive and unhealthy way. Through a series of serendipitous events, I came across yoga and began to slowly and steadily weave the teachings and practice of yoga into my life. My dedicated practice has gifted me a deeper understanding of myself, others and the environment in which we live. This gentle, loving connection has shown me how to live responsively, consciously and how to find harmony with what is, moment-to-moment, in the ever-changing nature of life.
These days, I have the incredible honour of being mum to two adorable, lively souls – Louis and Matisse, quite possibly my two greatest teachers. I am wife to a wisdom-filled, light-hearted tradie. Custodian to the bees. Lover of the outdoors – the bushland and the ocean. Faltering green-thumb. Dear friend to myself and others.
In the studio, I am a highly skilled, experienced, intuitive, perceptive and welcoming teacher. My nurturing teaching draws on the philosophy of yoga and my lived experiences, a passion for mindfulness, functional movement and the art of yoga nidra. I create a safe and welcoming space, guiding students to settle into their unique experience as it unfolds on the mat and how this flows into and is borne, from life itself. I empower students to move according to their unique rhythms and structure and in doing so, to rediscover who they are at their essence.
