About Me

I come from a pre-school teaching background and have been working with kids for the past 20 years. I also developed a great love for yoga about 10 years ago, and because yoga has benefited me in so many ways it is a perfect fit and an absolute joy to be able to share this love with kids.

I completed a 200-hour kids teacher training in 2009 and have been teaching kids yoga since then. I then completed a 200-hour adult Satyananda teachers training and have been teaching adults since then. In 2015 I was accredited through The Mindful Living Academy as a children’s mindfulness and meditation practitioner.
