THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT ME

I LOVE a good coffee – slow mornings and a big cuppa joe are my jam.

I am crazy about cats – and dogs, and all animals really, but especially cats….yup, I might just be “that lady”

My favorite TV show? The Dodo Channel – I love seeing the goodness in people and how love can overcome adversity

I think I am taller than I am – ouch, reality hurts!

I (think) I can get anywhere in 5 minutes – tricky for someone who only drives at 40miles/hr

I am convinced I am very funny – but I can never remember the punchline of a joke!

I am big on hugging – humans, animals and trees, hugging styles are a thing you know!

I have a fear of water – odd thing for a Pisces, living on an island in the middle of the ocean right?

The beach is my happy place – give me a good book, beach chair and a ‘brolly and I couldn’t be happier!

My fav holiday activity? Walking in rockpools, collecting shells and taking photographs

A little bit more…..

My biggest accomplishments – Being an Aunty , becoming a yoga teacher, running my small but purpose driven business and building a community of amazing friends and students from all around the world

What inspires me? My yoga practice, My client’s stories of struggles and success, being in nature and travelling with my best buddy, my Mum.

What Lights me up – Creating a safe space for people to share their authentic selves and to experience the inner wisdom and deep capacity for healing that is inherent within us all.

What I am currently working onslowing down, easing up, letting go of perfectionist tendencies, being vulnerable, laughing more, being seen, dealing with my terror of tech!!! and becoming a better baker….

WHAT ARE THE BIG ISSUES I STAND FOR

CONSCIOUS ENTREPENEURSHIP – Being deeply intentional in how we show up in the world as business owners and community leaders; living our passion in such a way that those around us see benefit from our work, not just ourselves and treading lightly on the earth.

SUPPORTING THE CHANGING PARADIGM OF HEALTH CARE TO EMPOWERED SELF CARE – away from prescriptions and towards prevention and becoming an advocate for whole-person health care

WHOLE PERSON, WHOLE LIFE HEALTH –  supporting my clients thriving in all dimensions of wellness through RIGHT FOOD + RIGHT MOVEMENT + RIGHT LIFESTYLE + RIGHT RELATIONSHIPS + RIGHT WORK

EMPOWERED WELL BEING – helping to put people into the drivers seat of their own health and healing journey through self awareness, education and personal responsibility

HEALTH OF THE PLANET – making better eating and lifestyle choices that support the our own health but also health of our families, community & planet
