I transformed my life from being overwhelmed and deeply unwell from a series of traumatic experiences into movement, freedom & expansion. I’m here to invite you to explore the other side of trauma, just like a shadow which only exists because of the absence of light, there is another dimension to trauma and I’m here to guide you into this luminous spaciousness.
It’s been an epic journey.
One that I am grateful for because it has also come with many gifts and revelations but it hasn’t always been that way…
Having been sexually abused from childhood, I instinctively used competitive sport to cope & indulged in extremely high-risk behaviours and self-medication.
In 2011, I was deported. Adrift & at my weakest, it was then that I was sexually assaulted again by my brother who has since passed on. I lost my mind. I survived this episode only through help from therapy, meditation, life-changing books, shamanic martial arts, and family. Life wasn’t done with me yet, shortly after the last sexual assault I became very ill. I had a large thyroid tumour & learned I had endometriosis. The illness forced me to take action, to take control and face my mortality. It was the beginning of deep inner journeying.
I came to realize that trauma doesn’t define individuality, in fact when unearthed and brought to light it has the grand capacity to transform and refine it.
Diving profoundly into the work of healing myself through deep meditation, I began to have powerful insights coupled with energetic experiences. This led me to India in search of answers. I became a Hatha yoga teacher there & continued to seek a holistic practice that could match the intensity of my aspiration to evolve & heal every facet of myself completely. Once my intention became crystallized, Tantra yoga found me. Thence began the most passionate love affair with myself 💗
In Tantra everything is sacred, even that which is hideous is embraced with devotion to allow for transformation to occur. I have the deepest gratitude for my beloved teachers, their guidance and support made the transcendence of my circumstances possible. Now my purpose is to share this potentiality and pathway with others like me so that we may rise together.
