Exercise and respiratory physiologist, Yogi & unlikely adventurer. Usually found drinking coffee, eating plants and giving hugs & high fives. Equal measures of kindness & silliness.
Left foot, Right foot, Smile, Repeat - my mantra, developed in the sweaty palmed moments before my first ultra marathon works just as well for life as it does in racing. One of my greatest drives is in helping each person (regardless of skill or background) to explore their best through physical activity, movement and mindfulness. I consider this a powerful vehicle to social change and personal development.
I love being in nature. The sound of footsteps and breath, the feeling of pushing the body - of being alive. And the space. Running – like any other thing which consistently brings you joy – is part of my daily life. Yoga is central within my life too, having practiced for nearly 15 years. I am deeply passionate about teaching yoga in a way that enables and facilitates an individual to really explore their own practice.
