"Breath is the bridge that unites your body with your thoughts."

My introduction to yoga was at the age of 18, when I took my first class. Though it wasn't until later on in life that I developed a consistent practice to assist me mainly, through my grief. I feel most yoga teachers have an interesting story to tell, before they finally find yoga. As Patanjali Speaks in the Yoga Sutras "And now yoga", Only after life has offered us great challenges can we surrender to a yogic path of self enquiry.
In 2010 I achieved a Diploma in Transpersonal Art Therapy, at The College of Complimentary Medicine, Australia.
In 2014 I completed my first Vipassana 10 day silent Meditation course and have been sitting and serving at the centre's since then to present day.
In 2015 I completed all of Special yoga's training's and was a trainer/senior practitioner/mentor for the organisation.
In 2016 I completed my 200 hrs Hatha Yoga teacher training at AyurYoga Eco Ashram, Mysore; India.
In 2019 took Judith Hanson Lasters level 1 Restorative training, in London.
In 2021 I took Vaz Sriharan Divine I AM Transmission Training level 1.
On my exploration of healing modalities, I investigated meditation and different techniques. It was not until 2014 I decided to sit my first Vipassana (10 day silent course), that I found my practice. A practice that I could actually understand the purpose of meditating and having significant shifts after each visit to the centre. Through this practice it gives me great insight into my mind and others. This practice holds and enables me to work at the levels that I do.
My therapeutic experiences in the spheres of Transpersonal Art Therapy and adult mental health, enable me to work intuitively to the specific needs of the individuals. My Classes create spaces of peace that empower children/adults to fully receive the benefits of yoga.
I use sound and singing bowls within my sessions, I have a passion in the science of energy/vibration and frequency.
This is an ongoing exploration for me, as with all these practices.
