Thank you for taking the time to find out a bit more about me. I moved from Scotland to Australia in 1986.
My early years were spent setting up businesses, training and mentoring sales people, working in advertising and marketing. I was a high acheiver and what most people think of as a success. I made great money, drove nice cars, wore beautiful clothes took clients overseas on 5 star trips, owned my own home….but I was not happy.
What did I do?
I went on a 25 year journey of discovery, doing courses where I opened the door to my heart where I cried, laughed, walked on burning coals, stood naked (yes literally) in front of fully clothed people to break down the walls I had built up, meditated and meditated, took every course I could on this search, spent thousands of dollars. I practiced 12 years of intense Bikram yoga ( the burning coals were easier) Listened to great teachers, elders and wise ones. I went to India again and again and again and sat at the feet of gurus and teachers. I meditated in Ashrams and visited holy sites. I did retreats, in silence whilst fasting or purging out toxins. I did sweat lodges, processes, and practices that would have me burned at the stake if it were another time…. I studied and studied and searched…..and all that I have found, I now share.

Studies: Certified in
Food: Raw Food Chef,
Yoga: Bikram Yoga, Surya Yoga, Kriya Kundalini Yoga,
Body: Aromatherapy Massage, Lomi Lomi Massage, Swedish Massage, Reiki; levels 1,2 and 3

After teaching Bikram Yoga for  the last 12 years, opening 4 studios and mentoring over 100 teachers. I  now focus on my Wellness Retreats, Online Courses, Personal Coaching and Skype Mentoring Sessions. 

What is my life  purpose?  To Teach and Inspire people to live in Health and Wellness, offering practical skills and tools.

What is my message?  After years of  searching for answers, making dreams a reality, triumphing in success as well as being brought to my knees during more than one “Dark night of the Soul” experiencing losses, heartbreaks, betrayals and illness I have come to know this   “ You must become your own Savior” (but sometimes need a helping hand)
