My Story

The motivation to create this space followed a traumatic event in my life that caused me to lose my words, so I went inward. Yoga and meditation became the vehicle through which I told my story and healed myself. Eventually I became a 200 hour Yoga Alliance Yoga Teacher (soon to be a 500 hours Advanced Yoga Teacher). Separately from this I am also formally trained in both Vedic and Buddhist Meditation and Mindfulness traditions.

My willingness to change, and a drive to be well mentally, physically and emotionally transformed my life. My own experiences, personal challenges, and achievements unlocked my potential. With each inner barrier I dismantled, I became stronger, wiser, more compassionate and a whole heap more graceful!  My life changed, and the course of my life changed. I am grateful to yoga and meditation not only as a wellness tool, but for it’s guidance in helping me continually grow and evolve.

So you see, I’m not here to be a fancy marketing platform. This project is personal and comes from the heart. Healing and transformation are  a path I’ve walked and continue to walk. You are stronger than you know, more resilient than you think, and more capable than you can possibly imagine. When we are positive about ourselves we can overcome any challenge or any one who challenges us.

I warmly welcome you to this community of wellness warriors. Yoga and meditation give strength and personal power. They are not a form of exercise, but a way of life, one that helps us reach our optimum health physically, mentally and emotionally. Include yoga and meditation in your self care routine, see the change, feel its benefits and look forward to an invigorated, stronger, more graceful ‘You’.

With love, light and a little Ayama Magic

What is Ayama?

Ayama is a Sanskrit word commonly used in the yoga community in connection with pranayama, the conscious awareness of breath. “Prana” translates as ‘life energy’ and “Ayama” translates as ‘expansion’, referring to how a regular practice of pranayama can expand one’s awareness beyond normal limits.

Language is not the only ancient knowledge that still flourishes. Increasingly we are turning to traditional remedies and treatments as solutions to the travails of modern life. Essential oils are one example of how to naturally improve physical, mental and spiritual wellbeing. My products embrace and promote the benefits of this ancient, traditional, natural and holistic remedy.

Through the support and promotion of positive lifestyle choices, wellness, yoga and meditation practices, I aim to help my clients and customers form deeper connections with themselves, and the world around them.

My Mantra

Ahimsa is a Sanskrit word translating to  “non-harming”. It’s at the heart of what I do. I strive to be a 100% natural and conscious business. All products are:

  • 100% plant-based wax, and use essential oils.
  • Vegan and cruelty-free.
  • Free from paraffin and palm.
  • Handmade and Hand Poured.
  • Use ethically sourced ingredients.

I deliberately use minimal packaging and the packing I do use can be recycled or is biodegradable. You can therefore be reassured that any purchase you make is sending loving kindness to yourself, your friends, family and this beautiful planet we call home.
