Review of 3 Minute RECONNECT recording on Insight Timer...

"There is no shortage of similar super-short exercises on IT, but this is among the best. Not a moment is wasted.

GREAT for beginners, but more experienced meditators can benefit from it too. Also lends itself to multiple listens." Ron Ehmke

 
 

About

​I have been practising various forms of mindfulness and meditation for many years. My first experiences were as a child with a regular practice of Yoga, dance and Tai Chi. 

When I began practising as a Chiropractor in 1997 I also started teaching mindfulness of breath techniques to patients, to help with sleep and stress reduction. 


In 2013 due to my own health concerns I found increasing my dedication to my daily formal meditation practice so valuable that I decided to train as a meditation teacher and share the benefits with others further.

I am a registered mindfulness & meditation teacher with the Meditation Association of Australia. I continue to learn, regularly train with others and attend retreats alongside my daily practice for my professional and personal growth. I wholeheartedly recognise the value of meditation, mindfulness practices (including mindful movement), and its positive effects on our mind, heart and body (including our health, nervous system and neuroplasticity).

My passion has always been working with women and children (as a Chiropractor), so it felt like a natural progression to extend that into my mindfulness, meditation and Yoga teaching. I started teaching mindfulness and meditation at Caulfield Grammar School (the Malvern Junior campus) in 2015 and have been teaching there since. I find it wonderfully rewarding.

 

Adding mindfulness, meditation and Yoga to your 'bag of life tools' is invaluable (for all involved). If you would like to join any of my classes please have a look at my current timetable below or contact me through the link below. I'd love to help. 

 

You can also find me on the 'Fit Mother' program with Chloe Lorback, at Wellness Workshops with Cecilia Rosenberg & some of my guided meditation recordings on INSIGHT TIMER.

Testimonials

 
 
"Dear Freya,
You have made a difference in my life. I use lots of your strategies in my daily life. I do deep belly breaths to get to bed sometimes. At camp I used so many of your strategies to fall asleep, to encourage myself to do activities and to calm down. The one strategy that works for me is deep belly breathing and when we bend our legs and put our hands in the air. My favourite activity was when we walked around in a circle (slowly). I'm very, very grateful that you were my mindfulness teacher/coach for 2017.
From Annabelle." (9 years old)
