My journey to yoga began about 20 years ago, and back then it was purely a physical thing. 


I liked the way it strengthened the whole body and didn’t just focus on one part.

I was also training for a triathlon at the time and found it helped my recovery.

However, through a serious of different traumas, life started to take a tumble. I was starting to fall in to the hole of depression and was at a very dark place in my life. But with the combination of medication and yoga, I started to see the light at the end of the tunnel.

Things started to get better for a while, and I managed to build up the strength and courage to start IVF, but with many failed cycles and finally a marriage breakdown the big black cloud of depression started to creep back in. 

This was when I grabbed yoga with both hands, quit my job in the corporate world and started on the journey to heal myself. 

Slowly, I started to build up strength, and retrained in the holistic world of therapies and embraced yoga with a whole new outlook. I really started to focus on breathing and calming my mind, and found that my practise was taken to a whole new level and yoga was becoming a lifestyle. 


I then found the strength to travel around South East Asia for 6 months, following my passion for yoga and meditation, and had the blessed opportunity to work with some of the most experiences teachers from around the globe.
