Originally from New Zealand, I am a
qualified, experienced massage therapist and yoga teacher, currently living and
practising in beautiful, tropical Cairns.
My massage and yoga journey began in
2002 whilst living in Hong Kong, teaching health education for a local NGO. In
the middle of a vibrant but hectic city, I discovered a beautiful little sanctuary
— a yoga school named Sriyoga. From my
very first class there, I felt a deep sense of peace and steadiness and I have maintained
a regular yoga practice ever since.
That same year, I began my studies in
massage therapy. I’ve always felt drawn to massage, even when I was a little
girl, giving hand and foot massages to my mum and her friends when they came to
Over the last 17 years, I have studied
many styles of massage, as well as undertaken five yoga teacher training
programmes. I have worked as a massage therapist, spa therapist and yoga
teacher in natural health centres, gyms, schools, mental health centres,
tropical day spas, on a cruise ship, in a chiropractic clinic and in private practice.
I was the Spa Manager at Arumi Wellness Day Spa on Green Island, Far
North Queensland for 2 years before opening my launching my own business, Breathing Space Bodywork in 2013.
I am wholeheartedly committed to
professional development and regularly attend trainings and workshops, both in
Australia and internationally, to enhance my skills as a bodyworker, yoga
student and teacher.
I feel so blessed to be able to share
what I love & have learnt so far through the treatments I offer and the classes I teach.
