“I moved to Melbourne at the age of 15 to follow my love for classical ballet. I studied dance, human movement and completed my VCE at the Victorian College of the Arts. After 5 years in Melbourne, dedicating my life and body to dance, my career and life path ended due to irreparable shin fractures. This was a life crushing moment for me and drove me back to Tasmania to seek solace with my family. Shortly thereafter, I feel in love, got married and had 3 beautiful children. Here is where I started looking for something to move and energise my body, still my mind and provide the feeling of total freedom that I used to experience when I was dancing. I found yoga, or perhaps yoga found me…
My first experience with yoga was in 1999 shortly after I moved to Tasmania from Sydney. I have had some wonderful teachers over the years who have shared with me yoga’s great gifts of connection, ease and transformation. I joined Lee Cody’s classes in 2007 and through her was inspired to start a regular home practice. The expansion continued under Clare Raffety, with a 6 month Elemental Yoga Immersion in 2013, followed by her comprehensive, challenging and deeply satisfying Elemental Yoga Teacher Training.
I love that this yoga practice works on so many levels.
