Registered Senior Teacher


In 2002 I set on the path of a 2 year teacher (500 hour) teacher training course through the lineage of Sri T Krishnamacharya. I have been studying and teaching consistently since I graduated in 2004 with my mentor Barbara Brian, and the Desikachar family - in Australia and India. I have always resonated with this lineage (since my first step into yoga class in my early 20's) because of the rich and deep knowledge that it holds, the focus on yoga as a breath oriented practice and the therapeutic understanding of yoga as an individualised practice.

I have attended seminars with many senior Indian teachers of the Krishnamacharya lineage, including TKV Desikachar as well as Leslie Kaminoff.

I am as Senior Teacher and Mentor with Yoga Australia.

My yoga business - Kyo Yoga & Healing is situated in Ocean Grove, Victoria on the Bellarine Peninsula. The studio offers yoga classes, yoga therapy, meditation, philosophy and teacher training (500 hours). Due to the Covid situation the studio is currently online while I move towards building a home based studio.

I have been mentoring other yoga teachers for many years now, primarily as they move through teacher training and often beyond as they step into their own teaching arena.

My special interest is in yoga philosophy and utilising yoga as a therapy to help individuals achieve health and healing. In 2021 I will complete a 1000 hours Yoga Therapy course through the Agama Yoga Centre, Melbourne and Krishnamacharya Yoga Mandiram, Chennai. I have been involved in a research trial utilising Yoga for Mental Health (as an Adjunct to CBT) and in 2021 will begin working on  a trial around Yoga for Endometriosis through Deakin Uni and Barwon Health in Geelong.

My aim in teaching is to inspire others to connect with a sense of balance and authenticity in their own lives and create health and wellbeing in mind as well as body - through the tools of yoga.
