I found my Ikigai, my purpose, after studying environmental science at Stellenbosch. After 3 years, a number of traumas, and an epilepsy diagnosis, I made a conscious decision to change my life path for something that supported my mental wellbeing . The fact that the mind could be so overwhelmed and stressed that it affects the physical body in the form of a seizure was a huge reality check. My body shut down and said 'enough'. Through yoga and meditation, I learnt to regulate my emotions and stress and stay in the present. I want to share this knowledge with you.
Yoga changed my life. I have been practising for 10 years now: 5 years in, I went on a journey to Bali to do my Yoga Teacher Training. That training changed my life and I found my ikigai in teaching yoga, mindfulness and meditation.
My passion is helping people to heal themselves by strengthening the mind-body connection, as well as sharing the power of nurturing touch and massage with parents and their babies.
