After completing a Bachelor Degree in Science (majoring in chemistry and biochemistry) at Sydney University, Kylie began teaching yoga in 1996.  Kylie practiced intensely in various forms of yoga such as Okido Yoga, Ki Yoga, and Astanga Yoga and completed a four-year apprenticeship style of training with Body Mind Unlimited in Sydney to teach Hatha Yoga.

She has completed her Graduate Certificate in Yoga Therapy through Enlightened Events in 2014. She works extensively in Yoga Therapy with private and group classes from her Studio and within the Health system in Eating Disorder, Addiction, Trauma and General Mood Disorder Programs. She has experience in Yoga Therapy for Fertility and Pre and Post Natal period and has presented her approach at The Australian Yoga Therapy Conference which includes an understanding of the Traditional Chinese Medicine patterns of disorder for improving fertility.

Her experience is deep, wide and varied in yoga, meditation and healing modalities. Over many years, Kylie explored the chakra system and energy reading in particular the amazing healing qualities of the heart chakra with Karima Hinterleitner, long-term follower of the enlightened Mystic Osho. Kylie worked closely with Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioner and Tai Chi and Qi Gong teacher Angela Zhu and trained with Japanese Yoga teachers such as Peter Masters of Zen Central and Jack Marshall of Zen Renaissance Centre. She believes her intimate scientific understanding at a biochemical level helped her to experiences the ancient practices with an open mind and the observation of a true scientist. Over time Kylie developed a deep trust in the amazing healing abilities of the body and mind.

Whist pregnant with her first child 15 years ago, Kylie trained as a Childbirth Educator and Doula at Birthing Rites Australia. At this time she began to specialise in prenatal yoga inspired by the works of Janet Balaskas and moved further into this field and qualified as a registered Calmbirth® Practitioner with Peter Jackson in Bowral. This training involves the latest application of scientific understanding of the mind/body healing abilities, in particular the relaxation response and it’s application to childbirth. Kylie is an advocate for human rights in childbirth and minimising the unnecessary trauma that can occur during this most vital time of a persons’ life.

The sum of this experience is currently in practice at the centre that Kylie established in 2007 - The Concord Yoga Studio and The Sydney Pregnancy Centre. She is the Yoga Therapist at Wesley Hospital Ashfield and Runs Teacher Trainings in Pre and Post Natal Yoga, Meditation, Women's Health and has mentored many teachers over the years.
