I’ve always believed in the power of healing available to us through nature. Both within our own human nature and our natural environment. When I first discovered Ayurveda, over 10 years ago, it just made sense. A language, a system, a scientific approach to life, not only for the health of the individual, but with the health of our planet in mind.
I came to Ayurveda through Yoga, and through Ayurveda, I found myself returning to the practices offered through Yoga.
I was fortunate to train with Dr Ajit (BAMS, PCAS), Satyananda Yoga Academy and completed the Advanced Diploma of Yoga Teaching (350hr) through the Australian Yoga Academy. During my formal training years, I worked alongside a senior practitioner in one of Australia’s busiest Ayurvedic clinics, assisting Ayurvedic Doctor, Dr Smita Naram, during her visits to Australia.
In 2014 and 2015 I traveled to, and stayed at Vaidyagrama Traditional Healing Village, an Ayurvedic hospital in Tamilnadu, India. It was here that I experienced the profound benefits of Panchakarma; and my love of Ayurveda grew even more. I was fortunate to return to India in 2015 for the International Conference on Ayurveda, where I met Dr Vasant Lad, it was here, being in the presence of a living Guru I realised the true potential of living an Ayurvedic lifestyle. Ayurveda and Yoga offers the opportunity to embrace our true nature and realise our potential. I love seeing those around me thrive in their uniqueness, practicing as an Ayurvedic Lifestyle Consultant gives me the opportunity to do this every day!

“I spent many years in high stress positions in the corporate and non for profit sectors, before being introduced to this wonderful modality in 2012, when unwell with Chronic Fatigue, unexplained hair loss, depression and anxiety, weight gain and overall lack of vital life energy.
I worked with a wonderful Kinesiologist who helped explore underlaying causes of my dis-ease, clearing decades of unprocessed emotional and physical stress. Through our work, I gained a better understanding of myself and my values helping me establish my physical, emotional, mental and energetic boundaries and feel more grounded.
During that time, I gained the courage to acknowledge and accept my own psychic and mediumship abilities which cemented my decision to study Kinesiology to use these skills to help others achieve their highest potential.
Guided by muscle testing, I also intuitively “read” your energy and being to identify often hidden root causes of a dis-ease or blockages and assist with bringing your awareness to them to help with clearing.”
