Making a difference in people’s lives inspires and drives me. And in the process of doing so, I learn more about who I am……and who I am is evolving moment to moment.
My working life has been varied and colourful! I graduated from university with a degree in jewellery design and worked in a jeweller’s shop for a few years. My Dad thought it was time to get out of my comfort zone so he pointed me to an ad in the paper for an English Instructor position in Japan. Two and a half years later I came back to Adelaide, bought a car and let my hair down for a few months. Then the opportunity came up to move to Sydney. For the next two and a half years I jumped and danced around on stages across Australia in hot, furry bear suits, though on occasions I was a rat ;)
It was on one of these trips that I discovered GYROTONIC® – immediately I was intrigued, confused and excited all at the same time! I moved cities to complete my personal training qualification and to begin my apprenticeship in GYROTONIC®. I have been learning and teaching ever since. Along the way I’ve worked with some amazing people whose skills and methods have become part of my teaching.
In all aspects of life, I endeavour to take responsibility for what I do and say, who I am being with myself and others and how I respond to situations out of my control. I still make mistakes and for that I am grateful - it is there that I take my learnings.
I hope that I can inspire others to take responsibility for their health and wellbeing, take their learnings from their classes or sessions and apply them to their everyday life.
My ethos is this: Be mindful in your movement in class and you will become mindful in the way you move, stand and sit outside of class…for it is your habits that make your body.
