I am a qualified traditional Yoga Teacher RYT200 in the lineage of Krishnamacharya/Desikachar, taught by Mark Whitwell, “ The Heart of Yoga”. I have also studied yoga and meditation at various Ashrams in India, Sri Lanka and Bali. I have been a registered nurse of 20 years in both hospital and community settings.
I grew up living an ordinary New Zealand family life, from a young age I headed overseas yearning to explore other cultures and experiences. As part of this I discovered yoga and fell in love with the practice and continue to enjoy the many benefits it has to offer.
Yoga has assisted me to heal emotionally and release past traumas. I am able to navigate my life more easily by having a clearer sense of what feels right for me, expressing my feelings, therefore having more meaningful relationships with other human beings plus an overall feeling of connected-ness to the world I live in.
Yoga and being a yoga teacher is true of me. I deeply believe what I am doing can help people. Yoga has changed my life and I know it can change other people’s lives too.
