“Yoga and awareness based bodywork through Massage is at the foundation of what I do when working with others. The practice of these modalities has taught me how to live a holistic, connected and happy life which became a natural progression into teaching others how to do the same. Our bodies all have their own innate wisdom that supports healing. With patience we can learn practical skills that allow us to tap into these abilities and as a result we flourish in our body and life.
In my classes or working with me one on one you can expect to be offered the space and guidance to experience functional movement, structural awareness and a greater sense of ease in your body. My intention is to guide and educate, inspire and allow the whole person to experience health and healing. Through many years of study, practice, travel and significant life events I have refined a unique style of teaching Yoga and Massage that is authentic, adaptable, intelligent and open. These are qualities, when embodied, keep us centered through change. Life is full of vibrancy and this practice teaches me daily how to express that. I look forward to seeing you on the mat, in clinic or at a training.”

Traditional Chinese Medicine
Advanced Diploma in Traditional Chinese Medicine (Perth. W.A)
Member New Zealand Register of Acupuncturists
“I have a background in nursing and graduated from the Perth Academy of Natural Therapies in 2002.
I have a passion for woman’s health, particularly fertility and pregnancy.
Using the ancient wisdom of Traditional Chinese Medicine to diagnose, together with the Western medicine diagnosis of infertility from your doctor or specialist, a treatment plan can be formulated by combining the knowledge of both modalities.
I want to help people feel better and achieve their goals. I have 4 children and I believe that conception, pregnancy and birth is one of the most amazing experiences of our lifetime. It is such a gift for me to help couples through this journey. I want to help those people who are having difficulties to improve not only their reproductive health, but their overall health too.
If you have lost hope, I can help you to regain it again. Working together we will create changes that will restore confidence in your body and its ability to make a baby and have the best birth you can imagine.
I love the wisdom and knowledge of Chinese Medicine, I am committed to continuing to learn all I can about fertility and pregnancy so that I can help more and more people achieve their dreams. I want all woman with the desire, to conceive and birth their babies on their own terms.”
