I am about making choices to live a full life, intuitively and visually responding to an inner landscape of spontaneous playful enquiry. I like to feel well, to be flexible and to keep learning. Resourceful and resilient I keep moving with breath and asana, drawing upon my creative roots as milliner and artist.
Practicing yoga since 1993, I trained with the British Wheel of Yoga and Fremantle Yoga School in Australia. I started teaching in 2010 with three children in tow. I took further study with the Byron Yoga School and in 2016 completed an intensive at the Ashtanga Research Centre, Bali. Fully trained in anatomy, physiology and ayurvedic massage, I completed an Advanced Ayurvedic Diploma in 2016. In yoga, I have received extensive training from Kale Leaf, James McIntyre, Donna Farhi, David Swenson, Clive Sheridan, Janet Stone, Sean Corne and Les Leventhal.
I am constantly refining and retuning my diet and lifestyle through the bumps. A diagnosis of an unexplained disparity between body and mind from an early age, gave me life’s work. I live with quiet courage, mostly buoyant, so that I may teach with presence, patience and gratitude. I speak of painful truths as I do of the graceful moments; of caring and devotion. I speak of being in life. I wish to bring inspired healing to the table in this beautifully messy work of change and exchange, as I glide and flit through kitchen, studio, mountain and beach where I am at home.
I graduated with a BA in Design History from Manchester Polytechnic, England, in 1990, before my children and the healing therapies of yoga and ayurveda changed my life. Later, I went on to study art graduating in 2017 with a BA in Fine Art from Curtin University, Australia.

I offer mentoring for seekers of sustainable wellbeing. I believe in the body’s innate ability to heal, in self-responsibility. I know we all need a guide in this task. I apply the teachings of yoga asana, pranayama and philosophy. I give practical advice on Ayurvedic principles of living, nutrition and treatment. And I can share maternal insights on the power of creative healing to ignite a spark in the feminine voice.
