My Experience

I have been practicing yoga since 2005. I went to my very first class when I was doing my Masters in Brisbane. I left yoga and returned again in 2008, left and started again in 2011 to bring some peace of mind to my busy advertising life in Canada. I left my yoga practice yet again… I thought, why do I keep stopping? I enjoyed it so much, but it was time that got me. I was unable to drag myself away from my desk at work to land on the mat. I thought projects would not launch, that the world would end, that cracks would form in my project if I was not available 24-7. It was this state of mind that evolved into depression and anxiety for me.

I turned 30 in 2013 and depression and anxiety kicked me to my knees. I started practicing yoga to calm my busy and sad mind. I started going to yoga once a week at a gorgeous studio in Newstead, and then twice a week and then three times a week! This led to a 6-week meditation course and then weekend workshops and then yoga retreats and 350 hours of yoga teacher training in 2018.
