Her skills and background range from the various movement modalities of dance, yoga, pilates to training elite athletes and complex injury rehabilitation.
The beauty and elegance of dance captivated her interest from a young age. At the age of 13 her dance fascination turned to Latin dancing. She later competed and placed first in NZ's first ever Salsa and Lambada competition. It was from here that her dancing career turned professional; dancing for Latin Fever Dance Productions and performing live dance shows in her early twenties. From this point on, her passion and love of movement has never left. The connection with ‘dance’ has become her muse. A sensory form of expression that paints our personal story, one that connects us back to our own unique essence of beauty. A harmonising and soul soothing approach to connect, feel, express and share!
She believes movement is a beautiful form of expression, it exudes and releases suppressed emotion. It allows us to connect on a deeper level to feel, immerse and simply ‘be’ our beautiful selves. A route to express oneself and provides a wonderful solution to suppleness, stability, strength and centeredness. Her continual quest for learning and expanding her knowledge of the body, movement, and our beautiful selves led her to creating these uniquely curated classes for all to enjoy. With a continual passion to explore movement, she is a constant seeker and adores the journey of unearthing and incorporating modalities for the body to feel fabulous and free.
