I am a full time Bikram Yoga teacher that lives in Perth, Australia. I developed compartment syndrome and fibromyalgia in my teens, and being gluten and lactose intolerant, have spent a large part of my years being in constant pain and suffering from digestive issues.

Over the past 10 years, I've shifted to a mainly raw plant based diet, explored alternative modalities of healing therapies and realised that being well and healthy is a way of life. I discovered yoga 4 years ago and have been teaching Bikram yoga since 2011, in the US and Australia.

I truly believe that we all have the power and the capabilities to heal our own bodies, to nourish the spirit and seek our own happiness and life's purpose.
