I was born and raised in Auckland, New Zealand, and became increasingly interested in Ayurveda and Yoga. I studied with Shirley Woods of Yoga Practice in Innerspace Amsterdam, and continued with a one year follow-up teacher training programme. I studied Ayurvedic Nutrition and Ayuveda Yogic modules towards Practitioner with Coen van der Kroon, Martina Ziska, Lies Van Dam, and Miriam Alberts of the Academy of Ayurvedic Studies in Amsterdam. Further studies include Yoga Therapy, and Restoration with Montserrat G. Mukherjee, and Alison Melvin of The Yoga Therapy Institute.
I am based in the heart of Haarlem, and am a member of Yoga Alliance Professionals an organisation dedicated to maintaining a high level of yoga teaching. My studies in Ayurveda, Yoga, Vedic sciences and other traditional healing modalities continue. Interests and hobbies include reading, art, writing, history, study of herbs, QiGong and various alternative healing modalities and self development practices.
In the spirit of gratitude, tradition and love, I would like to acknowledge and give thanks to all my teachers. To all the teachers that came before, the ancient ones, spiritual teachers, my loving family, friends and communities. May we all continue to walk our paths, as bravely, sincerely and courageously as one can come what may, dedicated to boldly experience and unite with the deeper mysteries of existence.
