Born in Melbourne, Australia to parents who delighted in travel. At the age of three traveling to Bali with my mother and sister I lovingly embraced the joy of a spiritual lifestyle full of devotion, temples, sandalwood and frangipanis. I was fortunate enough to grow naturally with the support of my family.
Attending my first Yoga class in Australia at the age of 19 to find the benefits astounding. I continue to discover this magnificent art of living. Traveling to India at the age of 20 I had my vedic astrology read on the bank of the River Ganges in Rishikesh. I was informed I was a Yogi, sweet and simple. My life has since been dedicated to learning and sharing these great teachings.
I studied in Australia the path of Raja Yoga with Samata Yoga Australia, receiving my initiation by Swami Durgananda and Yogini name Prema as well as teachers training certification.
Moving to New Zealand in 1993, I have since had three beautiful children and delight in growing as a human being. I studied at Wellpark College of Natural Therapies for four years, gaining a Diploma of Yoga.
With 30 years of yoga experience, I have a deep love of all aspects of Yoga and life and enjoy presenting these very deep and amazing teachings of yoga in a simple and practical manner. Encouraging you to inquire, explore and adventure in this wonderful life we are living.
