As someone who teaches Meditation and Yoga I'm always going to encourage you to adopt a regular practice. Yes, Meditation and Yoga has all the science behind it: lowering your heart rate/blood pressure, better organ function and reducing stress (etc etc) but I believe that one cannot cultivate Peace with a Meditation practice alone. I'm … Continue reading How to cultivate peace in a western world
When I graduated from my Yoga Teacher Training, I thought that I needed to be more "Yogic" before I can teach. Many of my fellow friends and teachers agreed with this feeling of doubt or unworthiness. How can I teach if I can't do this pose, or how can I talk about the scriptures when … Continue reading What is “real” Yoga anyway…
Many people assume my life in Byron Bay is fully lush. And I won't lie, it's bloody amazing! Yes, the sun shines A LOT and I'm at the beach almost every day, there's great cafes, and amazing areas to visit. There are so many things to love about being here (but you know that already!). … Continue reading I’m gunna stop bullshitting the Universe
I needed help. I craved guidance. I needed someone to tell me what to do. Because for the first time in my life I felt what it was like to have a body.

I recently wrote a blog for YogiSpirit.com.au where I share my insights and experience of self love and meditation.
I'm a feeler. Some people use their instincts and some their logic. I feel. Over time I've navigated what it felt like to trust myself. I've always wanted to work it out myself, which means lots of 'mistakes' 'failings' 'yuk feelings'. It only taught me what way not to head, it didn't mean I had … Continue reading Compass: What direction are you moving in?
Last month I recognised I needed to improve my diet and I began to chat to my friends about "How to deepen my devotion in Meditation?". The Universe got behind me 100%. As I listened and went with the flow I picked up "The Perfect Day Plan" by Jost Sauer. He talks about how to … Continue reading The joy in rising early
"In my teenage years I would make stupid choices and then ask for someone to help me out of it ...I was living so unconsciously for many years doing this over and over again."...
The dark times: where you spiral downward and you can't seem to pick yourself up, even though you know you can be a better person. Yeah, that happens. In my recent case of 'The spiral into darkness' it has actually been my best gift. For the last few weeks (or maybe it's been months!) I've been quite flat. … Continue reading Stars can’t shine without darkness
