I’m a yoga & meditation facilitator, spiritual teacher and Shamanic Healer / MBIT Internationally certified Coach from the Gold Coast, Australia. My background is in journalism, and I worked in media, PR & marketing for many years before I moved into healing. I still love writing and often contribute to different volunteer programs in this capacity.
I have been teaching various styles of yoga (mainly yin & vinyasa flow) for over four and a half years now. Currently I am looking for opportunities to utilise my meditation and yoga knowledge while combining my other skills as a Body Mind and Shamanic BodyWork practitioner.
In Australia, I used to hold permanent weekly classes and masterclasses with My Health Yoga in the period of 2013-Jan 2016; with yin, vinyasa/prana flow and hatha the main styles and focus. I am particularly passionate about yin and restorative yoga as I feel this practice induces deep healing on many levels. I have also lately started incorporating more functional movement elements into classes as I have discovered many aspects of yoga are very linear and a more holistic approach is often needed.
I have taught at various hot yoga studios, covered many classes for other teachers and continue to study under my main teachers Simon Park and Shiva Rea whenever possible. My focus moving forward is to complete more MBIT certifications in combination with consistently improving my own practice.
I completed my level 1 (RYT 200) in 2013 with My Health Yoga, Broadbeach. I have also completed 120 hours TT (Shiva Rea co/ Simon Park).
I have certifications/ qualifications in Psychosomatic (BodyMind) Therapy, Shamanic Bodywork (Lomi Lomi Massage), Theta Healing , MBIT and several other spiritual modalities.
I have been working with my own private clients for over 5 years plus now, as well as facilitating weekly meditations.
I specialise in assisting to clear deep emotional blocks around love/the body/relationships and releasing stress from the body.
Short term retreat and volunteering experience includes Hawaaian Sanctuary (Big Island) 2015; teaching daily yoga & meditation at the Bali Silent Retreat in February 2016. I have also volunteered in writing positions on Workaway.
