When I was a kid I was a gymnast and a dancer. I had a terrible injury at age 14 where I pulled out of a backflip and landed on the back of my head, ending up in a neck brace and with back problems that were to haunt me for many years.
In 2004 I was introduced to and began practicing yoga with the aim of healing my pack pain. I fell in love with the practice more and more, and my back started to heal. I started teaching yoga in Sydney, Australia, my hometown in 2011. I quickly gained popularity and became an Ambassador for the yoga clothing company Lululemon Athletica within my first year of teaching.
I’m thrilled to have co-created Earth to Fly Yoga Skool 200hr Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training with Tatiana Avila Bouru and our amazing teaching team in 2017, based in Paris, France.
Because of the nature of my injuries, I was intrigued by the human body and managing my own injuries, which comes through in my teaching. I studied Nutritional Medicine which included 2 years of anatomy study, which gave me a great foundation of knowledge on top of my yoga teacher training.
I enjoy a strong practice and I love playing with arm balances, handstands and more! But I also have a deep love for Yin Yoga and Meditation. I have studied more than 500hrs of vinyasa yoga with teachers Baron Baptiste (creator of Power Yoga), Chanel Luck and Simon Park (Shiva Rea senior teachers), Nicole Walsh and Tiffany Cruikshank, and 230hrs of Yin Yoga with Bernie Clark, Melanie McLaughlin, Tiffany Cruikshank and Pioneer of Yin Yoga, Paul Grilley and I bring a unique modern flair to my classes.
I have been privileged to also practice with inspirational teachers including Ana Forrest, the creator of Forrest Yoga, Les Leventhal, Brian Kest, Sarah Powers, Tara Stiles, Kerri Verna aka Beach Yoga Girl and many more. I completed the 10 day Vipassana meditation experience in 2016 and this remains part of my daily practice.
I’ve had various health issues throughout my life, including multiple surgeries that led me towards a holistic lifestyle with a wholefood, organic diet, and a passion for wholefoods.
I moved to France in February 2014 and am now well established in Paris, teaching at some of Paris’ best studios. I run Teacher Trainings, workshops and retreats in Paris and worldwide, and was blessed to have been featured on the cover of Esprit Yoga Magazine (2016) and and Yoga Journal France (twice in 2018)
