"I came to yoga in 2010, drawn initially for medical reasons, however, I then embarked upon an amazing journey with daily hatha yoga, breathwork, kriya chanting and other meditation practices. I've been teaching meditation for ten years now, and yoga for almost as long. Yoga has become a way of life. it's woven into every thread of life's great tapestry."

In gratitude:

In 2010, I was looking for some help dealing with chronic pain and burnout and started to study and practice yoga under the guidance of Steve Harrison at the Yoga Sanctuary, Southampton, UK. it simply transformed my life. I completed a 200 hour yoga teacher training programme over a period of 18 months there, graduating in 2014, and then studied a further 18 months of an advanced teacher training programme. Over 6 years, I studied and practised thousands of hours of yoga, meditation, scripture and philosophy courses and discovered a profound love for mantra and music, kirtan there. I lived a bit like a nun or a monk for a while, changed my whole way of life, including diet, work, play and rest.


Having relocated to Austria in July 2016,  I remain remotely connected to the Yoga Sanctuary at Wildwood Ashram and I often practice online with Steve and the sangha. I continue to draw inspiration from all that I have learned there in the past 13 years.


I have also become a semi-regular attendee at Sri M and the Satsang Foundation Swiss Mountain Retreats, drawn to sangha and satsangha, and the Vedanta and Kriya teachings since 2018. I have also attended Satsangs with Mooji in India and Portugal.                                                                                                                                                                    

I also find guidance and inspiration through self study, (jñānā yoga) music (co-founder and member of Valley Kirtaniyas), dance (original founding member of Ecstatic Dance Tribe Vorarlberg though no longer involved), through people I meet along life's great journey, other philosophical and spiritual teachers, and increasingly, from mother nature herself. I feel drawn to the elements, working increasingly with water, up here where many of the great rivers begin.

Nature Connection

Mother Nature is one of my greatest teachers. In my spare time, I love to get out into the mountains, to walk and hike a litte and in winter, a little cross-country and downhill skiing.

I enjoy spending time forest bathing, barefoot walking, toe dipping and swimming in cold lakes and rivers. I also enjoy gardening and I love to sing, make music and dance.
