I have been practising yoga for over 30 years, teaching for 15 years, and ran my own boutique studio for eight of those. And I have loved teaching every class! I'm passionate about using the philosophy and techniques of yoga and meditation to enhance and embrace the every day.
My foundation training was an 18-month 700-hour Hatha/Vinyasa teacher certification. With a continuing learning and teaching intention that draws from a broad spectrum of Yoga and other Eastern movement traditions and Mindfulness and Meditation practices. I'm particularly influenced by the qualities of Insight Yoga and Meditation, Yin, and Qigong and am really lucky to have undertaken additional teacher training in these areas with world leaders, in particular, Sarah & Ty Powers - Insight Yoga & Buddhist Meditation; Paul Grilley – Founder of Yin Yoga; and Donna Farhi. I have also completed Yoga Therapy for Breast cancer and Lymphoedema teacher training with yoga therapist, Annette Louden and a Yoga for Pain Care certification with Yoga for Pain Care, Australia.
In tandem with my yoga practice is a curiosity and commitment to mindfulness and meditation. I completed my Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) teaching certification with the Mindfulness Teaching Institute of Australia (MTIA) in 2015 and I am currently studying for a Graduate Diploma in Counselling with the Australian Institute of Professional Counsellors, (AIPC).
My hope is to ignite and invite curiosity for my students to explore their possibility and potential in their own unique way.
