My Story

I was born in East London (east coast of South Africa) in 1974 under the Aquarius sun.

In my youth, we constantly moved around South Africa - never staying in one place long enough to make friends or get used to a school - life was never smooth sailing.

At the age of 16, I left my home. At 19, I got an opportunity to move to Cape Town! Ah, a new start!

As far back as I can remember, I've always found myself asking the big question "what is the purpose of life". So, in my early 20's a dear friend and I decided to join the amazing Natalia Baker for our first meditation course in Kenilworth, Cape Town. They were so good that we ended up doing all her courses available!

At the same time I was working in a high stress environment for a printing company. One of my colleague’s wife had just completed a Yoga teacher training. To support her, a few of us joined her practice and soon I fell in love with, what I discovered later was Asthanga Yoga.

I changed jobs but carried on with my Yoga practice wherever I went. Eventually I felt that something was missing. "Is this really how I want to spend the rest of my life?" I asked myself regularly. I couldn't shake the feeling that I was totally in the wrong profession. Even driving to work started becoming challenging.  One day my partner suggested that I should "do what I love", teach Yoga to others and quit my mundane job.

This meant leaving everything behind that was familiar to me, as well as financial security.

I took the plunge!! I paid off my car and saved a little nest and in the summer of 2014, the adventure to Goa, India began -  to follow my new dream and the love and curiosity I had for Yoga.

Our training was very intense but so beautifully liberating. We had caring, experienced teachers, who Im still in contact with today. I took the training very seriously!

At the very end of our course, whilst in our last meditation (intense breathing), I lay back into Savasana (corpse pose) and after a short while, I experienced a powerful, heart opening, divine and expansive realization of my true nature. I totally lost my ego and the understanding of who I was in a physical body. I became everything and nothing all at the same time.

After I returned to the room, everyone was seated already and I was ecstatic! I now had the realization that the beauty of the divine creator is in each and every one of us and that death is just a new journey of consciousness and not the end. All fear melted away and my heart expanded to understand that we are all connected.

There is so much more that I could say about this life changing event, but it's hard to describe in our limited language and with our limiting senses.

In my classes, no matter which style of Yoga I teach, I try to bring this message across in a gentle way. Teaching from being in the moment and listening to my intuition rather than a script, or someone else's experience.

My dream now is that we may all realize this that which is already in us. 

We are loving, expansive, infinite beings. There is absolutely no reason for fear anything in this life. The divine is in us all and that it's through the work of Yoga that we can discover and uncover this to achieve liberation from our cramped, rigid minds and bodies
