Freya has been practising various forms of mindfulness and meditation for many years. Her first experiences were as a child with a regular practice of Yoga, dance and Tai Chi.
When Freya began practising as a Chiropractor in
1997 she also started teaching mindfulness of breath techniques to patients, to help them with sleep and stress reduction.
In 2013 due to a debilitating health challenge, Freya had to suddenly stop working as a Chiropractor. She increased her dedication to her daily formal meditation practice and also found Yin Yoga.
She found both so valuable that she decided to train as a meditation & yoga teacher to be able to share
the benefits with others. Gradually she was able to incorporate the health benefits of inversions into her practice, through the use of a FeetUP trainer,
Her passion has always been working with women and children (as a Chiropractor), so it felt like a natural progression to extend that into her mindfulness, meditation, and Yoga teaching. She started teaching mindfulness & meditation at Caulfield Grammar School (the Malvern Junior campus) in 2015 and has been teaching there since. She finds it wonderfully rewarding. This has expanded to teaching senior students at Scotch College and offering adult classes, workshops & retreats.
Adding mindfulness, meditation, and yoga to your
bag of life tools' is invaluable for navigating the rollercoaster ride of life, and for helping to
re-fill your cup. If you would like to join any of Freya's adult classes please have a look at the current timetable or make contact through the link below. Freya would love to help.
You can find Freya listed as a teacher on the informative Yin Yoga resource,
some of her guided meditation recordings on INSIGHT TIMER,
on the 'Fit Mother' program with Chloe Lorback, in her studio (Maitri Studio Brighton), & at occasional Wellness Workshops with Cecilia Rosenberg & at the Somers Shala.
Freya is currently a registered mindfulness & meditation teacher with the Meditation Association
of Australia. She continues to learn, regularly train with others, and attends retreats alongside her daily practice for professional and personal growth. She wholeheartedly recognises the value
of mindfulness practices, meditation, and yoga and their positive & healing effects on our body, heart, and mind.
