I'm a fun loving, dream chasing yoga instructor from Canberra. On a mission to find creative ways to get every body to the mat. Hosting a variety of different yoga events and yoga classes around Canberra, including Goat Yoga, I've introduced SUP yoga, Float Yoga and Bend + Beers to Canberra. To show you that getting bendy can be fun and to help you experience yoga in a way that you wouldn't usually try, getting you outside of that comfort zone!
More about me...
When I'm not getting bendy, you can find me drinking coffee at one of our amazing local cafes, trying to discover the perfect smoothie bowl or eating avo on toast (breakfast is my fave), enjoying beers around town, SUP'ing on the lake or coast and exploring our country in my campervan with my partner #vanlife
Before my yoga life, in between travelling, I wore many hats in federal government positions and private companies, from marketing and advertising management, business management, events and my last professional role investigating pharmaceutical crime. But nothing felt quite right. I've always had a mindset where I've wanted to live a free and fulfilling life, surrounded by other like-minded people.
So I spent a good chunk of my 20's (as most people do!) searching for what felt true to me. I discovered yoga while travelling and completed my training in 2016. In 2017, I farewelled my secure job and income and took a leap to create a life I want to live and began to work for myself. It's not easy, but it's certainly fun. If you'd have asked me 5 years ago is this where I saw my future, I would have said no, but yoga has opened up so many doors, opportunities and it's been life changing. I wouldn't have it any other way.
