My Journey

My journey into yoga began over ten years ago back in 2006. I initially arrived on the mat in desperation of release from the suffering caused by my back injury.

I was hesitant and doubted if this practice of yoga could help. However, from the very first session I could feel this deep release inside of me, there was a complete shift of energy and a sense of space that my body had been longing for. With each practice I began stripping back the layers of my being, reconnecting with my soul and learning so much about myself. Yoga offered to me so much more than just a physical practice to ease my pain. Each moment I stepped onto my mat was a chance for me to heal my body not only physically but mentally, emotionally and spiritually.

The magic of yoga really ignited a spark within me and I longed to be able to share this beautiful ancient practice with others and that’s when my teacher training began.

I qualified with The British School of Yoga in 2012 and I continue to develop my knowledge through workshops and training. Recent studies have been with:

  • Hanuman Academy – Five Great Elements
  • Sianna Sherman – Mythic Yoga Flow
  • Janet Stone – Energetic Alignment, Living the 8 Limbs, Art of Assisting, Nourish & Restore, Chanting: Yoga of the Heart, Anatomy of Emotion
  • Soul Star Medicine – Shamanic Star Sound, Astro Empowerment, Remembering Lemuria, Rising Lemuria
  • Alana Fairchild – Saraswati Healing
  • Wild Goddess Tribe – Sovereign Roots
  • Scott Moore Yoga Nidra (in training)
  • Mindful Yin Yoga
  • Chinese Medicine for Yoga (in training)

I am devoted to weaving my practice with the elements and ancient mythology as well as allowing it to flow with the rhythm of our seasons, the planets and the cycles of the moon. When we mirror the qualities and energy in season and within our solar system we feel more balanced and energised in ourselves. Aligning with nature around and connecting to this cosmic rhythm we can heal more easily, feel more steady in the mind and content with life.

In recent times my spiritual practice has taken me on a deeper journey into the realms of sound medicine, learning more about the art of mantra and working more closely with yoga of the heart.

To bring forth sound healing through our Starlight Sound Temple each month has been an incredible experience and it fills me with such joy to share this beautiful practice.

Recently, a divine collaboration with my dearest soul sister saw our Priestess of Light Mystery School open its doors to its founding year. In here we merge the Egyptian pantheon with the magic of Avalon and incredible Star Nations to draw forth a new light on soul transformation. This training has exceeded all expectations and the Sisterhood that has been birthed is truly magical!

For me yoga and all of the healing modalities I weave together into a sacred tapestry allows us to create this deep soul alchemy that inspires us to awaken and open up to the endless possibilities that reside within. Through these offerings, we begin to cultivate this intimate relationship with our true self and our body and ultimately with our beautiful planet. When this alchemical process takes place transformation is inevitable. We become more healthy, more vibrant and live a more fulfilled and heartfelt life.

It is my intention to bring this magic to you and show you that there is far more to yoga than a performance of poses. It is my intention to connect you to that radiant light and empower, awaken and ignite!
