Yoga nerd! I love teaching yoga, practicing, reading about and even watching. Even my cat comes from a fellow yoga teacher. I’m a mum of a teenager, enjoy Cricket and Footy and have with that mastered integration. Since my health scare I eat very healthy and often test food against my body. When my body doesn’t like something, I put it back onto the shelf. I’d even go as far as saying I wouldn’t be here without yoga.
I stumbled by yoga some 18 years ago, it was love at first sight. I teach, I practice and I learn, I love to share, I love to create! Yoga is my path as well as a few building projects along the way;) I’m a creator, I’m all about balance on and off the mat, I enjoy a glass of wine, I love chocolate and anything sweet, chef by trade I don’t mind playing in the kitchen but now days prefer to be cooked for! I am a keeper of two beautiful Bengal fur babies and I LOVE getting out in nature, it grounds me! I’m a Virgo Dragon baby. I encourage my students to enjoy the journey of yoga rather than focus on the destination. I believe, as a teacher we learn as much from our students as our students learn from us.
On and off the mat I like to have a laugh, smile lots, fall out of a pose and jump back up again. To me yoga is a playground to find your inner playfulness. Teaching yoga allows me to help others find their inner calm with a smile. My teachings have guided me to discover more and more about the practice of yin. There is always more to discover and weave into my teachings.
My introduction to yoga was by a friend who dragged me along to her weekly class. I had no idea what yoga was about but after that first class I was hooked. That was 20 odd years ago. Yoga has completely changed my life. It has changed my body and my mind. Yoga for me has be transformative journey and I am forever a student; open to all its teachings. Hanging with my family is one of my favorited things to do. I look for the joy everywhere.
Yoga first came into my life over 12 years ago. At the time I had just moved to Melbourne, I immediately fell in love with the new form of movement. Having spent my younger years in dance, yoga became a new environment to challenge and express myself. I soon realised that yoga did not just finish when you rolled up your mat and it became a part of my everyday being. For me, yoga is about the balance between strength and flexibility with the complete diversion from the busy mind. My classes combine both strength and mobility work in a dynamic, Vinyasa style. Together we flow, balance, and breathe.
I have been practicing yoga for over 20 years and teaching for around 4 years. I am constantly evolving as my body changes. Yoga has taught me to be calm, patient and still. Although my friends and family would say I am still working on it. It is by practicing yoga that we can connect with our breath, mind, and body. I love watching students at the end of class in this beautiful calm state, they almost float out of the studio. I believe spending time nurturing your body, mind and breath can only enhance your quality of life.
