About Me

Hello, I am Certified Yoga Therapist and Senior Yoga Teacher (Yoga Australia) with 15 years experience in gentle and personalised yoga for people with complex conditions. I specialise n Yoga for Cancer Care and currently offer group and individual Yoga Therapy for Cancer at the Chris O’Brien Lifehouse Comprehensive Cancer Centre in Sydney, Australia.

My approach to Yoga

My YogaCPR programs and approach provide a personalised, safe and accessible Yoga experience for people living with and after Cancer and its treatments. Every persons journey is individual and the vast array of Yogic practices and tools which can offer relief, space and a pathway towards healing can bring a great sense of empowerment to those who have felt reduced and weakened by the disease and treatment protocols. YogaCPR aims to provide an exploratory space where individuals find confidence and strength in their bodies again and emerge with a new sense of clarity, purpose and self. Most people I work with would simply like to feel like themselves again after their cancer experience and this is what we aim to achieve through:
Gentle breath-centred movement
Somatic awareness and tension/trauma release in the body
Rejuvenating breathing practices
Centering mindfulness and mediation practices
Nurturing and refreshing relaxations

The Yoga I teach is
Therapeutic / Individual
Adaptive / Accessible
Classical Hatha
Gentle / Restorative
Meditative / Relaxation
