I practice and facilitate mindful movement, gentle and restorative yoga and iRest® Yoga Nidra classes, private sessions, retreats and events in New Zealand and abroad.


My practice and teaching come from a somatic place of listening deeply within, which is a skill that I have developed over 20 years of practicing and teaching yoga. I have been blessed to have studied in depth with Donna Farhi and through her guidance have been opened up to a truly loving and sustainable practice. Also I was fortunate to discover the healing and integrative power of iRest® Yoga Nidra in 2013 studying with Richard Miller who inspired me to complete my Certification under the guidance of Kirsten Guest in 2018. Combining the welcoming aspect of iRest along with functional, therapeutic, and restorative yoga, I feel grateful to have found an incredible framework and ground of Wholeness upon which to meet both personal challenges as well as orient students and clients to their own resources. I am passionate about empowering people to find a sense of agency through providing safe learning environments, invitational, and choice based practices and ultimately supporting people to develop their own self-practice.

This work in the Wellbeing field has placed me in many different environments and situations including schools and colleges, hospitals, mental health communities, those living with health challenges (including cancer, anxiety and depression), as well as specialising in working with prenatal women. I feel delighted to bring all of this experience as a faculty member on the New Zealand Contemporary Yoga Teacher Training as well as offering mentoring as an iRest Certification Supervisor.

I am also currently studying to be a Yoga Therapist.

I live in Nelson, NZ where I share an adventurous life with my lively 2 boys and supportive partner.
