ABOUT


Offering yoga classes to enrich and enlighten your everyday life. Suitable for students of all levels; if you have a mind and a body there is something truly enriching that yoga can offer you.


My only wish during my time with a student is that their practice will enlighten the most important aspects of their life. That is, their contentment within themselves and the resulting blossoming in relationships with others.


My first true introduction to yoga was at Sacred Cow Yoga in 2007 under the guidance of Bonnie Preston after a somewhat challenging, but in the end enlightening year. It was at this time I realised how critical a work/life balance is and that a prestigious job and money doesn't necessarily equal happiness.


Unknowingly, Yoga opened an amazing journey for me and effective way to manage anxiety which had long plagued my mental health. It was during my pregnancies that my practice began to truly blossom and compelled me to begin my teacher training. I very soon realised that I had only ever touched on what yoga truly is and through my studies began to shine some light on what my practice could offer me and in turn I could offer others.


In August 2014 I completed my 350hr teacher training with YIMI under Celia Roberts and began teaching in my local community and through a wellness program with UQ. My education is a constant process and I relish the opportunity and challenge of moving into prenatal and postnatal yoga; the place where my passion was ignited.


Qualifications/Experience; 350hr teacher training, registered with Yoga Australia, First Aid Cert, Founder 'Free 2 Be Yoga', Qualified 'Baby Bliss Yoga' Pre/Postnatal Yoga Teacher.

These prenatal classes are suitable for all levels; Sacred Cow Yoga Studio is a fully equipped studio with a full host of props. The class structure will be based on hatha yoga principles, with modifications to focused on preparing your body and mind for birth. Classes will include asana (postures), pranayama (breath work) and mediation (relaxation). Most importantly it will provide the time and environment to build a deep connection with the little soul you are nourishing and growing.


Time is set aside at the end of each class for the mums to enjoy a warm drink and share in a relaxed discussion/information topic. Every few weeks someone from a specialty field will come in and provide some more specific information in all things birth and baby e.g, private midwife, lactation consultant.


Prenatal Classes ignited my own desire to teach and share what yoga can truly offer. They are a sacred space and somewhere to meet others experiencing the journey that is pregnancy and birth. They can also be a place where you may just meet life long friends.
