My Story

I compartmentalized myself for many years. I labelled myself as a dance teacher, body builder, entrepreneur and starving artist. It was an unconscious veil I used to hide my true self
and keep me stuck in life.

As a people pleaser, workaholic, perfectionist, I was subconsciously destructive to myself and others. Resigned and cynical that "this was as good as life could get". Life was... fine.

I was completely disconnected from my body, numbed my emotions, felt controlled by my monkey mind and was in a constant state of "doing". I worked 20 hours a day, I was constantly in toxic relationships, all in an attempt to validate myself. 

At 25, I hit rock bottom. Bankrupt, I realized that I had two options:

1. Hide in the shadows and shut out the world


2. Get help and learn to love myself by shining a light in the shadows.

I’ve been a coach and educator for over 10 years, but it wasn’t until I experienced my own awakening that I truly felt I could lead others. I began integrating Breathwork and found this to be my greatest tool for exponential growth and quantum leaps. I've used Yoga and dance to help physically release stories and contractions in the physical body.

It is with great honour and privilege to share my knowledge and practice with others to help women break through their barriers and live a life without fear.

I believe that you can have anything you want in life, as long as you have the courage to ask for it.

What if it was as easy as breathing or thinking happy thoughts? Peter Pan might have been onto something...

What if you could live in a world where anything is possible?

It is my life's purpose to help you find that happy place within you... now.

For all human beings, I am committed to heal-thy self and hardwiring happiness through mindfulness and movement.

We are the source of the ripple of change.
