I have been practising Ashtanga Yoga consistently since 1992 under the guidance of Graeme Northfield and Iain Clark, both exceptional Ashtanga Yoga teachers (certified by the late Sri K Pattabhi Jois), all of whom I have a great respect for as they have contributed enormously to my understanding and practice of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga.

After completing a 3 year teacher training course with Iain Clark at Ashtanga Yoga Shala Brisbane I have continued to teach with Richard Clark at the Shala since 2005, 10 Moreton Street Paddington.

Over the years I have practised with Sri K Pattabhi Jois in Mysore, Dena Kingsberg, David Roche, Simi Roche, Tim Miller, David Williams and Sharath Rangaswamy. I have also studied a number of Yoga philosophy and Sanskrit courses with Sri Rama Ramanuja Acarya (Rami).

I am following family traditions as my mother Bonnie was also a Hatha Yoga teacher with IYTA (founded by Roma Blair). Mum taught yoga classes for about 30 years, in Adelaide for Bette Calman’s Yoga Centre from 1974 -1986 and continued on the Gold Coast until 2000. After returning to Adelaide she stopped teaching around 2004 to care for Dad. She has always been one of my greatest inspirations, teacher and mentor especially for applying yoga to daily life.

I am honoured and grateful to have this practice in my life constantly providing inspiration and daily challenges. I continue to practise and study daily and am a fully Registered Senior teacher with Yoga Australia.
