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.

Ayama Living is where I teach, share and inspire you to expand your yogic practices so you can reach your full human potential. Through the support and promotion of positive lifestyle choices, wellness, yoga and meditation practices, I aim to help my clients form deeper connections with themselves, and the world around them.

My Story
A lifelong learner, and someone who makes endless compassionate enquiries of myself, I am fascinated by the human mind and how we reach our human potential . I first came to meditation over 10 years ago at a time when meditation and pranayama were considered a little strange. Yet, over time the techniques given to me by my teacher along with the personal mantra handed to me, gave me greater insights, facilitating healing from past traumas so I could step into my authentic ‘Self’. This became the beginning of a lifelong journey into yoga, pranayama and meditation.

I’m a fully recovered ex-lawyer and MBA by background. I’m not here to tell you to put on a loincloth and go meditate on the side of a mountain (although that would be nice). I’m here to help you navigate the bridge between spirituality and daily life with all it’s raw humanness. Despite the story and conditioning many of us are fed from our early years, we are human beings first. Bliss is our standard DNA setting, we have just forgotten. My job is to help you remember!

My Mantra
My philosophy is that there is enough stress in the world. We don’t need to create more! Within us all there is an ancient wisdom we can access for joy and inner bliss but the external world has taught us to forget, disconnecting us from our true nature. It’s time to awaken and remember who we are!

I combine my own personal yoga and meditation experiences with my passion for leadership, self-mastery and wellness.
