I was born and educated in South Africa spending a great deal of my childhood in nature. It was here, under African skies, that the mystery and power of nature began to reveal itself . . . climbing the majestic Drakensberg Mountains, roaming the wide African veldt, exploring the bushy terrain of Zululand game reserves . . . these experiences reverberated and started a drumbeat inside me.
My family moved to Australia in the late 70s where I continued my soul journey into another passion singing and music. It was as a performer and singer with a dance theatre company that brought me to Ireland in 1985. I fell in love with the soul in this country the land of my ancestors and so began another soul journey, one into the healing arts! Changing directions slightly yet with the music in my soul, I became a therapist after training in Aromatherapy and Colour Therapy, which then led to Hakomi Psychotherapy, Ayurvedic nutrition, Yoga and Kahuna massage from Hawaii.
I have studied with many Yoga teachers including Grant Woolven in Australia, Jenny Beeken in U.K. and Julie Russell in Tennessee,USA.. I now teach Soul Yoga, my own version of deep and gentle yoga to align with our soul energy.
Over the past years I have distilled my beliefs, passion and broad experiences in creating Soul Journeys – inspirational yoga retreats in exotic magical landscapes. Healing, nurture, rest and renewal is the core essence of these journeys. Aphrodite, the Goddess of Love, Beauty, Laughter and Abundance has been my companion, inspiration and celebration on my journey.
