Encompassing mind, body and spirit


My Story

I have practised yoga for over 17 years. Sometimes I join a class or workshop, and other times I practice at home. It started as a way to manage pain resulting from a childhood of gymnastics and grew to become a form of rehabilitation for a knee injury. At the age of 17, I found yoga helped to alleviate stress, anxiety and depression from Glandular Fever and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.

Throughout my adult life, I have continually come back to the practice of yoga. Whether as a reminder that life does not need to be raced through, or as a form of well-being. As a result, I have become more mindful of slowing down and paying attention to breath, body, mind, and soul in each moment. I realise the importance of nurturing the true self.

In November 2014, I travelled to India to complete a Teacher Training Course at the Sivananda Vedanta and Yoga Ashram. What started as a dream to deepen my connection and understand my own practice grew into a desire to reconnect with others through the practice of yoga.

I now teach a weekly class in Beachmere, Queensland. Classes are based on a general Hatha yoga style but incorporate elements of Restorative, Ashtanga, or Vinyasa flow, depending on the needs of the individuals and the collective group energy in the class each week. All classes offer options and variations for differing levels of experience and flexibility.

I am also available to teach for retreats or corporate/private classes in the Brisbane, Caboolture and Sunshine Coast areas.

What is Yoga?

Yoga is a complete science of life that originated in India many thousands of years ago. It is the oldest system of personal development in the world, encompassing mind, body and spirit.

Many people are drawn to yoga as a way to keep their bodies fit and supple. But in time, anyone who continues with regular practice becomes aware of a subtle change in their approach to life – for, through persistently toning and relaxing the body and stilling the mind, you begin to glimpse a state of inner peace which is your true nature.

Asanas are postures to be held, rather than exercises, and are performed slowly and meditatively, combined with deep abdominal breathing. These gentle movements not only reawaken your awareness and control of your body but also have a profound effect spiritually – freeing you from fears and helping to instil confidence and serenity. At the end of a yoga session, you will find yourself relaxed and full of energy.
