Searching deep within, uncovering peace, love & joy.
Hello, I'm glad you are here.
As a young child I was always interested in spirit. My yoga interest started when I was six. My mother would take her mat out to class & come back radiant. She shared with our family what she had learnt. I have been practising Satyananda Yoga for 17 years & have 2 yoga diplomas, the most current in Satyananda Yoga. In 2002 I travelled to India to met Paramahansa Satyananda Saraswati & my guru, Paramahansa Niranjanananda Saraswati. This was the greatest experience of my life.
My father created a great spark in Buddhism. He taught me the basic principles of Buddhism - being kind to others, what goes around comes around, do not kill & the middle path. His father's most notable teachings was, "If the whole world looks wrong, take a look at yourself." They taught awareness of self.
I studied Early Childhood education at Macquarie University & specialised in Montessori Education. My thesis' at university were 'Nurturing the Spiritual Development of the Child' & 'Tibetan Parenting'. With a fellow Montessorian, we have recently set up a school at Wamberal on the Central Coast, NSW, Australia. The first Montessori school on the Central Coast.
In 2005 I founded a yoga school called ~ Yoga by the Sea. I teach yoga on the Central Coast & at Satyananda Yoga Ashram, Mangrove Mountain. I also facilitate two groups; Sivananda Math - a charity institution - & Stitches for Tibet - a creative group which raises money for a Tibetan woman (living in exhile - Dharamsala) to complete a tailoring apprenticeship. These three groups fall under the banner of the Saraswati School of Arts.
I live on the East Coast of Australia with my loving husband & two children.
