Words of Wisdom
Try not to outsmart the body. Instead, be willing to understand your body rather than force it, then… it will tell you all its secrets, and together you will move further than you ever imagined. Stand on your mat like an equal who’s willing to be shown the marvel of who you really are.
Originally from Australia, my physical discipline began young as a gymnast, which progressed into a circus career as an Acrobat and Trapeze Artist. I have lived in 5 countries and visited over
25. Initially yoga was a complimentary practice to my career, & a way to understand different cultures around the world, but it became so much more. An adverse childhood took its toll on
my body and life and through a collection of traumas, bad decisions, illnesses and injuries, it showed me what else it had to offer. Yoga has been significant in my healing of PTSD, a severe neck injury, heart attack, and the list go on into the past, because it has helped me move through and forward. So can you!
