Being a California girl, I played volleyball my entire life, learning from a very young age body awareness, strength training and the pressures of being a junior olympic athlete. After a neck and shoulder injury during my first year of NCAA Volleyball in San Diego, which I later came to the realisation, it was in fact an emotionally induced injury, I needed a big life change. Not long after, I moved to Sydney, Australia where I continued to physical and mental recovery through pilates, yoga and meditation while studying my Bachelor at a fashion school. Fast forward some years of working in the fashion + TV industry, I still didn't feel like I was living and working in an industry that fully aligned with my values. I was drawn back health and wellness and a love for low impact ways of moving my body and looking after my mental health. With the encouragement of my then boyfriend, now husband and baby daddy, I took a career swing and pursued teaching Pilates, Megaformer and eventually Yoga.
Through all of life's lessons so far, my absolute greatest teacher is my son and the process of baking him into this world. My first pregnancy I was bed bound for almost the entire thing. For someone who is very active and has always been very physically capable, this was next level difficult. Through that process I gained a new found respect on women, the human body, the power of the mind and a deep empathy for those who are not able to be mobile.
