Originally from Darlington in the UK, my own personal journey with yoga began 17 years ago and it has played a big part of my general health and well being ever since.
I've done the shift work in the mines, ran my own design business, studied for years, survived a few natural disasters, moved countries several times and raised 3 kids - and I'm still married to the girl I met whilst backpacking 26 years ago.
Yoga has been an invaluable tool in keeping me grounded (let's just say 'sane').
An avid nutrition and food lover, I cook from scratch, enjoy a relaxed, wholesome approach to nourishing the family; keeping it all in the healthy realm; with a smidgen of indulgence when required - balance is a buzz word in my kitchen (the wife is rarely there).
As co-owner of Joymamma Studio in Mooloolaba, I have seen the need for yoga consistently rise over the past 6 years - that is the women's needs.
What about us men? After all, Yoga was originally only ever practised by men.
Not sure how to do yoga?
I'll guide you through the basics; observe and assist when needed and provide you with an outlet to let off steam, power through sequences and get to know your own body's range of movement, flexibility and strength.
A body free from tension, aches and pains provides the foundation for a clear mind and improved focus - the perfect medicine for today's world.
