My story so far
Since falling in love with music at an early age, I wanted to be a live sound engineer. In my 20s I made that a reality, and I’ve been touring worldwide as a professional sound engineer with high-profile bands since 1995. Along the way I also fell in love with yoga, and after several years of practice I travelled to Bali to train as a teacher (YTT500), so that I could share yoga’s life-changing magic with others. Since then I have also qualified as a Yoga Therapist after training for 2 years at Yogacampus in London – I am accredited by the British Council for Yoga Therapy and a registered therapist with Yoga Australia.
When I’m on the road with bands, I teach yoga and meditation to the artists and musicians I tour with. Between tours I lead workshops and retreats, and I see private clients for yoga therapy. In my Yoga Therapy workshops you can expect therapeutic yoga practices – a blend of slow Hatha, restorative yoga and meditation along with education and practical tools to help you with whatever issue we are addressing. I also teach ‘juicy’ Vinyasa workshops, and these are rich with music, yoga philosophy, intention, symbolism and inspiration. I run retreats internationally a couple of times a year, usually in conjunction with another teacher, and these are a great opportunity to explore new places whilst getting to know yoga – and yourself! – better.
Originally from England, I am now based in the Sunshine Coast region of Australia. The unconventional and nomadic nature of my life means that I’ve learnt to get creative with my yoga practice, and it’s made every aspect of my life easier. My passion is helping you to develop a ‘yoga toolkit’, to navigate your life’s journey with comfort and ease.
My music clients include Anastacia, Take That, Westlife, Kylie Minogue, A-ha, Muse and Natalie Imbruglia, and each year I run sound on the Pyramid Stage at the world’s largest festival, Glastonbury.
I am also a published writer – I contribute to Australian Yoga Journal, Yoga International, Om magazine, Adventureyogi.com, The Stage and Soundgirls.org.
