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 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 mums and kids (as a Chiropractor), so it felt like a natural progression to extend that into my mindfulness, meditation and yin 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.

 

Being a mother myself I also recognise and appreciate the roller coaster ride motherhood can be. Adding mindfulness, meditation and yin yoga to your 'bag of tools' is invaluable (for all involved). If you would like to join me for my Casual Mindful Movement & Meditation classes or MBSM course (8 consecutive sessions) at the BRIGHTON EAST STUDIO please 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 and some of my guided recordings on INSIGHT TIMER.
