Palate Earth

Yoga found me in 2003 in the form of a poster nailed onto a coconut tree in Thailand. That memorable class on the beach left a resonating, deep impression and since then I’ve spent most of my waking life (and a fair bit of subconscious time too) studying the philosophy of Yoga. I’ve trained with traditional gurus, contemporary masters, neuroscientists, Ayurvedic practitioners and more recently, Yoga Therapists where I believe, the greatest benefits lie. I work with individuals, groups, corporates, organisations and schools in class settings, one-on-ones, seminars, workshops and home-study courses. Two years ago Yoga in the Park was launched which ran in 5 locations across the Mornington Peninsula over summer, involving 15 teachers and demonstration students to deliver Yoga to...

The Yoga Sanctuary

"My journey of yoga and healing began in the Indian Himalayas in 2003, when I first trained to become a yoga teacher. A few years later I met my personal teachers AG, Indra and Ganesh Mohan, experts in yoga, Ayurveda and personalised yoga, from whom I learnt to adapt yoga and healing to the individual. Judith Lasater and Donna Fahri have inspired me to further adapt yoga to the needs of women. My inspiration for teaching comes from the great teacher of love and compassion, Sri Mata Amritanandamayi Devi (“Amma”), who I regularly spend time with. Whilst yoga is amazing in creating health and balance, I love combining it with the Australian Bush Flower Essences and Creativity. As a Transpersonal Art Therapist, I love taking people into the depth of their beings to discover one’s inner... Read the profile >>
