- Sidney, Australia Send teacher a message
I grew up in Australia and have spent the last ten years travelling the world as an acrobat and trapeze artist. I first began attending yoga classes with my Dad when I was twelve but always left before the 'boring relaxation' at the end (also my Dad would snore and it was embarrassing). A few years ago I was struggling with stress and anxiety - managing multiple businesses and my travel/performing career and I became drawn to Mindfulness and Buddhist Philosophy as an antidote from my endless "busy-ness". I now try to 'be' more and 'do' less and over the past few years have completed a ten-day Vipassana Retreat and Yoga Teacher Trainings in Purna Yoga (Byron Bay, Australia), Rocket Yoga (Ohio, USA), Yin Yoga (Gold Coast, Australia) and Yoga Nidra (Bali, Indonesia). I have presented at the Evolve Yoga Festival in Byron Bay, Leisure Industry Week in Birmingham, IDEA in Los Angeles and Filex in Sydney. I am now a Mindfulness Facilitator with Mindfulness Works Australia and do regular teaching contracts at the H2O Yoga and Meditation Centre on Gili Air and at Bali Silent Retreat. I love how this practice has brought a small window of peace into my life. I love yin yoga, meditation and silence. But I also love handstands and Power Yoga. Life is made rich by contrasts.
