​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. This expanded to teaching senior students at Scotch College and offering adult classes, workshops & retreats. She finds it wonderfully rewarding.

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 or workshops please have a look at the current timetable or make contact through the link below. Freya would love to help.
