How did you get into yoga? 

At the age of 15 I went with my Mum to my first yoga class at warriewood surfclub. We were fortunate to have such an amazing first teacher who has been a huge inspiration for me becoming a Yoga Teacher myself. As a young teenager, I instantly noticed how yoga effected me positively on many levels and I really never looked back. I will forever be a student of yoga and Ayurveda. It has brought so much balance to my life, many lessons and has lead me to where I am now.

What is your least favourite pose, Why? 

Arm balances! But this keeps me humble and always reminds me that yoga isn’t about mastering every pose. It’s a practice. Most of the transformation happens in just giving it all a go. A constant reminder that “we are here to feel, not accomplish.”

But I will stand on my hands one day!!!! 

When are you the happiest?

I have quite a few things that make me happy. Here’s just a couple that standout to me; (in no particular order) 

  1. Eating peanut butter brownie’s from Ora. (The “s” was intentional.)
  2. A really good Savasana. To me this is bliss. 
  3. Falling asleep with one or both of my children asleep on me. I mean there really is nothing quite like it. 
  4. Being in the ocean. 
  5. Close friends, a bottle of wine (or margi), delish food and a beautiful view (I don’t ask for much! ?)
  6. Travel. 

If you could turn any activity into an Olympic sport, what could you win a gold medal for? 

Sleeping – for sure!! Everyone who knows me well knows I can sleep anywhere, at anytime. I am the worlds worst “co-pilot” on road trips and can go from high energy to asleep in minutes… One great thing I have passed onto my children. 

I’m also quite good at being awake… but the sleeping is a real skill!
