I jumped into yoga in the 1980’s when I arrived in Hobart in love with this wild island. I was introduced to yoga at the Satyananda Ashram. Yoga has remained my ballast throughout the ebb and flow of my life whilst also working with my other passions – natural area management and empowering community amidst all the joys and bumpiness of family life and parenting. The mat remains to be my ever-reliable companion; it is where I can return to silence and practice that allows me to dive into self-reflection and self-care.
No matter the day – practice of asana, pranayama and meditation offers a constancy and reminder that we are all one, all connected and life is a cycle.
I was drawn to teacher training with Clare Raffety in 2014 after being a student at the YFTH studio since its beginning. This path deepened my understanding and experience of yoga anatomy, yoga philosophy and enabled me to share this deeply nurturing, kind and caring practice and knowledge with others to facilitate healing within, healing of our community and then the world.
I teach hatha yoga with some pranayama offerings in the home, workplace and occasional Saturday classes at the YFTH Studio.
