About Me

I was born and raised in Hobart, my upbringing was centred around experiencing nature in its fullness, and I was lucky enough to be surrounded by meditation, and mindfulness practices in my family, community and schooling. 

I have a BA in Painting from the VCA, and have spent majority of my adult life living and working in Melbourne and New York working as an artist assistant, and within contemporary art galleries. I love spending time on solo retreat fully immersed in nature, and am excited and inspired by continuing my travels of the world.

Yoga Influences

Teachings of Krishnamacharya, Mindfulness Meditation, Body-Mind Centring, Somatic Movement 

 

Teaching Style

A breath focused, meditative practice, an exploration of the senses.

Why do you practice yoga?

To re-center and touch base, to reconnect to each moment and get to know myself better through the more subtle and soft sense. 


Why do you teach?

I love to share ideas, and I see teaching as an opportunity to connect with my community. I am constantly inspired by each person that enters the studio and their willingness to meet themselves within a collective to practice. Teaching Yoga draws me deeper into my own personal inquiry, the consistent practice, study and self reflection feed back into all areas of my life.

Favourite Asana?

Tree Pose - Planting down, and sipping upward through my roots!
