Bird Song Women's Circles have started again on Tuesday's at my house in Bensville. For more information see below.

My yoga & meditation classes at Empire Bay Hall

I have been teaching at my lovely, local community hall for 8 years now.

We practice Hatha, Flow, Yin & Restorative Yoga.

The classes are feminine and nourishing.

They gradually change with the seasons, a cold day and we will be moving and flowing practicing more heating, standing postures. A hot day will find us laying down and practicing more cooling, calming yin and restorative yoga.

Usually we manage to fit in a bit of everything! A gentle flow to warm up, then strengthening Hatha. Yin for flexibility and Restorative Yoga to deeply relax.

As we settle into the longer holds of Yin and Restorative yoga we focus less on the alignment. I teach you the wisdom that is connected to the posture, hand gesture, essential oil, breathing technique we are using in class.

Positive, empowering and so much more than an exercise class.

Small changes over time are lasting

Bird Song - Women's Circle begins again 7th February

Join me at my place, a sanctuary garden with organic fruit trees, veggies, herbs and flowers for us, the birds, butterflies and bees to enjoy.

Time: 9.30 - 11.30 am at my house & garden in Bensville.

No yoga asana, there's more to yoga than the physical positions. 

Yoga means connection or yoking together and is a tool to enhance the quality and beauty of life.

Begin with a wander around the garden; I'll make a couple of pots of Herbal tea to share. The circles will have a specific workshop or we'll sing.

Bookings needed through my website only at the moment.    

Only 7 places - for bookings click here

We enjoyed our singing circle so much we are holding another on 21st Feb

Everyone is coming along again...no spots left, sorry. 

March 7th - Using spices as medicine. Ayurvedic Workshop.

We'll find out everyone's health patterns, dosha or individual energies by filling in a constitution chart. Learn a little about food, herbs, spices, meditation and lifestyle advice for your "dosha."

Then we'll make up 3 spice teas, one will be specific for your "dosha" They are special decoctions taught to me during my Ayurvedic Herbology Diploma and taste absolutely delicious.

April 4th - Singing bowls and chants from around the world. $10

May 2nd - Singing bowls and chants from around the world. $10

There are complimentary online yoga & meditation classes here on the website.

AND three complimentary Yoga and Ayurveda Courses here on my website.

The courses are designed to guide and mentor you through the classes using the traditional knowledge and teaching it in a feminine, modern way. 

Many of you will know a little about yoga and meditation.

But what is Ayurveda?

Ayurveda is yoga's sister science, interwoven and never separate.

Its focus is more on the physical body with healing modalities such as herbs, diet and lifestyle advise.

Twenty years ago I stopped working in a hospital.

Four years later I stopped working in a healing centre.

I realised we all want someone else to "fix us" and the quicker the better.

The only person that can "fix" you, is you.

Your Therapist or Doctor can help with one small part of your whole, complex and beautiful self.

I started practicing yoga.

I stopped trying to "fix" others.

And I started healing myself.

Everything I teach helps me the most, every class, every meditation.

I close my eyes and speak from within.

Are you ready to begin your journey with me?

Yoga & Ayurveda are your tools.

The course is your guide.

Namaste (My heart greets your heart.)


I have a new website and I am just finding my way around it. It has a webshop and you can now pay via credit card, bank deposit, PayPal or in person.

I plan to gradually start charging for my online classes. You will be able to download them in my webshop.

Every Yin posture has a beautiful, gentle, restorative adaption. You don't force yourself into a yoga asana, you begin with a gentle variation. You learn to breathe and soften and then your body begins to relax, to surrender, to trust you, to let go and you move deeper and deeper....And while your resting, in a deeper space, you listen to the wisdom of the yoga teachings.

Which inspire and encourage you to not only change your physical health but the health of your mind and spirit.

Over seven weeks my yoga classes gradually strengthen and build flexibility in your whole body.

Week one, we focus on the feet, legs, hips and lower spine. The Tree. The Warrior. The Bridge. The Mountain for example.

Which help create a strong, steady and stable body and mind.

Each week we move up your spine, into your core, your chest and by week five we are focusing on the neck and shoulders.

The last 2 weeks we practice more meditation and breathing practices that help create peace and release endorphins as we move up into your mind and spirit. After week seven, we go back to the foundations again.

The classes change with the seasons, and the yoga teachings are feminine and empowering.

We chant, we use eye pillows with a few drops of a specific essential oil. This time around when we get to the heart, chest and arms, we will practicing a beautiful massage meditation.

In yoga terminology we are circling the chakras. 

The seven classes are supported by online yoga and meditation classes. I can recommend and guide you to classes that will help build strength in your lower back for example, or are particularly beneficial for stress, or improve digestion. The classes are a complete and holistic practice.


Class times on Mondays at Empire Bay Hall:

For fortnightly
