My yoga journey began nearly two decades ago and was deepened when preparing to walk the Kokoda Track in 2009. I found I was able to use the strength of mind and body inspired by yoga to complete the trek despite a serious spinal injury. Having rediscovered a passion and respect for yoga, I was inspired to commence formal study in Yoga so that I could share this knowledge with others. In exploring the many varied yogic styles and healing practices, I have studied with Masters in Australia, Thailand, Hong Kong, America and Mexico to date, and have trained in the modality of Reiki, becoming one of the 12th lineage to Dr Mikao Usui, as well as a qualified Remedial and Sports Massage Therapist for Tennis Australia. I am also a Yoga Coach for the Australian Sports Commission and the Yoga Aid Ambassador for the Mornington Peninsula Ambassador.
Henry David Thoreau said, “It is not what you look at that matters, it is what you see.” So many of us come to yoga as a physical pursuit and find ourselves transformed by a deep connection to the more subtle teachings of yoga, enhancing our lives and those of the people around us.
