1. What led you to get into becoming a fitness trainer?
I have been practicing yoga for the last 17 years, delving into various styles while always enjoying the mental and physical benefits of each practice. Over the years yoga was a constant tool to act as a pressure valve to release the stresses of work life. A way to find a balance and focus during periods of upheaval. I had constantly toyed with the idea of getting my qualification and setting a new path for myself that focused more on promoting a healthy mind body relationship, rather than putting on events that promoted business and no doubt lead to a hang over for most attendees! It was on a trip to India in 2012 that I finally took the plunge and completed my training in Ashtanga Yoga in Mysore, India. It was truly a life changing experience! Teaching yoga is incredibly rewarding, helping students move through their physical and mental barriers, watching them develop in their practice and being able to connect with such a board group of people makes me so blessed to be able to call this my job.
2. Outside of the gym, what do you like to do for fun?
Travel is one of my passions. Huge fan of cooking tasty healthy treats, checking out new restaurants and bars (love a cheeky cocktail) and hanging out with the people I love.
3. What is one thing about you that most people don’t know?
Prior to teaching yoga I was an event producer, working on high profile gigs such a VIP Sponsorship program for London Olympics 2012, Handa Opera on the Harbour and the John Eales Medal for the ARU. To say there has been a bit of a shift in my life is a bit of an understatement!
