HIT BY A BUS,

A PANDEMIC, 

A HEALTH CRISIS,

AND MY DREAM BUSINESS

LOST A BODY PART

BUT TURNED THOSE LEMONS INTO LEMONADE AND NOW I'M ON A MISSION.....

to help my clients create a wellness lifestyle and rock solid foundation of vibrant health so they can get into the best shape of their lives, enjoy boundless energy, show up confident, creative and productive 

and live a wildly successful life

Its January 2019 and I'm living my dream.  My beautiful new yoga studio on the North Shore of Maui had been open 6 months, and I'd just signed the lease on the space next door to build out a wellness center. 

I was busy - maybe a bit too busy - but loving life.  Opportunities abounded and I was so excited for what life was bringing.

And then one sunny Friday afternoon, I exited a blind corner and found a large school bus barreling headlong into my lane.  In a split second, my life changed and my dream turned into, what felt like for many years, a nightmare.


The thing about curveballs is we don't see them coming...... 

FROM LEMONS TO LEMONADE - How the worst 3 years of my life set the stage for the best to follow....

I won't lie... it was tough going for a few years...
Complications led to medications which led to more complications.  Trying to navigate running a business full time and constant doctors visits and tests, all during a global pandemic led to a total collapse. 

I made the heart breaking decision to close my businesses and focus on my health.

I chose to "lose" one battle in order to win the "war". I turned to my yoga practice, to Ayurvedic Principles and Practices, to deep rest, to self care.

I spent a year getting as strong and healthy as possible and used the time to go back to school to study nutrition and health coaching.

In the end I still had to have the (life saving) surgery but I'd set myself up for a successful procedure and recovery.  Having a great foundation of health prior to my accident and all my health and wellness training meant within 1 year post surgery I was back to teaching and expanding my wellness business with a clear vision of how I wanted to show up and better serve my students and clients.

8 certifications

I've been a passionate entrepeneur since my early 20’s. In my LBY (Life-Before-Yoga) I graduated with a degree in Marketing and Sales Management, running my own Events Management company before eventually finding my way to my yoga mat in 2001.

In 2004 I graduated with my first 200hr Yoga Teacher Training, opened my first studio and over the next 20 years continued my studies in yoga, personal training, corrective exercise, nutrition and health coaching. 
 




But before arriving in the "Rainbow State" (Hawaii) I called the "Rainbow Nation" (South Africa) home. 

Living on the magical island of Maui I get to live my dream life running my small but purpose driven business......

Years of leading group classes, running yoga teacher trainings, working with clients in the gym and coaching has allowed me to refine the skill of being able to meet people where they are, helping them connect to their deepest desires and priorities, envisioning their healthiest and best lives and then guiding, supporting and motivating them to take action on making their goals and dreams a reality....


I grew up in the beautiful city of cape town, living life surounded by nature and the ocean

i come from a fmaily of teachers and yogini's. my grandmothers introduced me to yoga and ayurveda early on, planting a seed that only came to fruition much later.

I  find inspiration in my practice, listening to my student's and client's stories of struggle and success, being in nature, through art and music, meeting people from all around the world and travelling with my best bud, my Mum.

In my free time you will find me walking on the beach, at a local coffee shop with my students, pottering in the garden, chilling by a pool, trying to become a better baker and figuring out the tech of running an online business!
