Yoga has always been a part of my life; as a child my mother was one of the first Yoga teachers in the mid-western town I grew up in and encouraged me take up Yoga from a very young age. Yoga became an important part of my life from my teenage years helping me to manage the rollercoaster ride of my young adult life. A back injury in my late 20’s led me to explore The Feldenkrais Method and eventually train in this unique and highly effective method: teaching body awareness and mindful movement.
I have worked for over 25 years in the Health Care System as an Occupational Therapist and have extensive experience in areas such as Occupational Rehabilitation, Neurology, Pediatrics and Chronic Pain.
I have been teaching Feldenkrais for over 20 years and Yoga for over 12 years and have found a way of combining my skills and experience to support others on their journey toward less pain and improved health and well-being.
I am passionate about Yoga and all it has to offer us on our path through life. Yoga is medicine – low tech and potent – it has the power to support us through all phases of our lives; the good times and the hard times. Yoga keeps us grounded, mindful, awake and alive to be the best we can be.
When people ask me what style of Yoga I teach I have to answer that I am eclectic in my approach. I draw from many Yoga styles; ViniYoga, Vinyasa Flow, Satyananda, Restorative Yoga and Yin Yoga to name a few. I am also heavily influenced by Mindfulness practice and Buddhist teachings. So a real cornucopia but basically my philosophy is to adapt the Yoga to the student and slow the practice down to facilitate mindful awareness and relaxation.
I run yoga classes, private one to one yoga lessons and Feldenkrais classes for beginners through to advanced for students living in the inner west area including Annandale, Forest Lodge, Leichhardt, Glebe, Lilyfield, Camperdown, Stanmore, Petersham, Summer Hill and more.
