I trained for many years in the Jivamukti Yoga lineage. I was attracted to this method’s emphasis on developing right relationship with the earth and the practice of ahimsa, non-harming. I’ve undertaken over 1000 hours of teacher training, as well as 10 years of teaching experience. I have also trained with Bernie Clark, completing a 50hr Yin Yoga Teacher Training and am currently undertaking a 9-month Sanskrit language course. I teach regular yoga classes at two Sydney yoga studios – Humming Puppy in Redfern and Union Street Yoga in Erskineville. I also hold regular events, workshops and retreats under the umbrella of my company Wild Child Moves, which marries yoga, meditation, movement, deep ecology and rewilding.
Deep Ecology Facilitation
I hold retreats and workshops facilitating deep ecology practice in wild places, as well as working with organisations to strengthen connection, intention, resolve, and unity. Last year I completed a year-long Facilitator Development Course through Joanna Macy’s organisation, The Work That Reconnects. Deep Ecology brings us back to a felt sense of connection to the earth, bringing us into an animist way of experiencing the web of life – as alive, as spirit running through all things. The core practices and method formulated by environment activists, Joanna Macy, John Seed and others, focus on developing connection to one another and the living earth, as well as processing grief over the destruction being wrought, and then coming to a deeper resolve to protect the earth through activism, challenging the established structures underpinning our society, and shifting human consciousness. Many of the practices are inspired by engaged buddhism.
