I’ve been a nurse for more than 20 years, working in a variety of fields – oncology, palliative care, rheumatology and research to name a few – and as a result am passionate about promoting holistic health and well-being to everybody.
My own battle with breast cancer prompted me to follow my dreams and move to Australia in 2003.
I confess that I’m a heat junkie but had never heard of Bikram yoga before I tried my first class in 2005 – my practice was sporadic initially until I did my first 30 day challenge. Then I was hooked!!

Reasonably fit, I was well aware of the changes to my body with regular practice – but the changes to my psychological health continue to amaze me!

I decided to go to Bikram Yoga Teacher Training in 2014 and I truly believe Bikram yoga makes us bullet proof.
Forget what you can’t do- it’s what you CAN do that counts!
