I'm originally a Canadian who's proudly made Wellington, NZ my home for nearly twenty years. I found myself looking for the career that was the right fit for me, that fuelled a passion for my work and allowed me to try to make a difference to the people around me. I learned from studying Massage Therapy in Canada that I loved anatomy and eventually realised that I'd always been driven to live a life devoted to truth - you know, that deep down passion to simply know why we're here, what makes us tick, to feel connected to something larger.
This eventually led me to yoga. I've been teaching flow yoga around Wellington for well over a decade - at present offering classes at Habit Majestic Centre and the Open Polytechnic of NZ. For me yoga opened the door to meditation practice which is where I've found my true passion. Meditation was absolutely life changing for me - both personally and in the way, with iRest teacher certification, I was able to help others meet their life's challenges, their questions, their fears with a new perspective that allows for deep inner healing just as you are.
I began teaching iRest yoga nidra meditation in 2013. I offer classes, workshops and one-on-one sessions that, much like counselling, can address the difficulties you have in life or things like sleep disturbances, depression, anxiety, stress, chronic pain and trauma with mindfulness meditation practices.
Some people want to delve into the spiritual, others don't. Ultimately it's up to you. iRest qualification allows for all this to be met and explored in a safe environment tailored to you. Want to know more? Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
