Sand, sunsets & yoga. Huacachina is a tiny village built around a desert oasis in Southwestern Peru.

I’m a yoga teacher, naturopath and professional writer with notebooks full of my many adventures.

When I’m not blogging about yoga, travel and life I’m teaching upbeat Vinyasa Flow yoga classes, planning my next travel destination, or chilling at the beach with my nose in a good book.  

Back in 2008 I moved from Barcelona to Melbourne to complete my yoga teacher training (RYT 200) with Somachi Yoga.

Teaching inspired me to learn more about the human body (our most precious asset), and I graduated with a Bachelor of Naturopathic and Herbal Medicine (BNatMed) in Auckland soon after.

Since then, I have taught yoga in studios, at the workplace, for organised events, and to private clients, in the comfort of their own homes. My classes are a blend of safe alignment and creative sequencing with a naturopathic twist.

Along the way, I served as an Ambassador for Lululemon New Zealand, contributed to Viva, Stuff, M2 Woman and TVNZ, collaborated with Huckleberrys Whole Foods (yum) and Little Bird Organics (double yum). I’m happiest writing about yoga, well being, travel, interesting people, and nature.

I love the beach, the outdoors, and doing yoga in the sun to good music. Curiosity keeps me inspired. I keep my teaching and writing fresh by exploring new places (including life underwater), learning new ideas, and meeting interesting people.

If you’re looking for corporate, private, or event inspired yoga, I can help.
