My Mission

Helping students evolve, grow and become the very best version of themselves is my ultimate goal.

Through my yoga classes and the Rewire your Life programme, you learn to dissolve stress, find ease in your body and mind, and plug in to a higher source. If you allow it to, these practices can help you become more than you ever thought possible… are you ready to rewire your life?

To get started, check out my freebies – from yoga videos to meditation tracks – right here.

My Story

Yoga.20.7.16 99-small
I stumbled across yoga about 15 years ago – I loved how yoga made me pause and take a breath. But it only became a constant in my life years later when I started working as a television journalist.

I turned to yoga to help me decompress and deal with the high pressures of working in live television. Right before going on air, I used to practice a few rounds of ujjayi breathing – the difference it made to my state of mind and focus was astounding!

As I delved more and more into yoga and the yogic lifestyle, I started to feel a disaccord with working in the news. I swapped the newsroom for yoga studios and haven’t looked back since.

I now teach private, corporate and group classes in Hong Kong. I am also the Mind Body expert for Soulgenic, offering weekly on-line yoga videos, meditation tracks and articles. The platform will be launched in 2017 so watch this space!

I truly believe life is what you make of it and if you want a life full of fun, excitement and adventure, then that’s what you will attract! I find the trickiest bit is clarifying exactly what you want… That’s why we focus a lot on pinning down exactly what you want in my Rewire your life programme. With the tools you learn in the programme, actually getting it is the easy bit!

Quirky Facts

Well since we’re friends now, let’s get better acquainted…

I was born in a tiny, remote village in Namibia. The registrar was about a two-day drive away from our house, so I was only officially registered about six months later!

My first language is French. With my father’s job, we moved all around the world and I learned to speak English when we moved to Canada. English was my fourth language after French, Portuguese and Spanish. I am not American or Canadian – I’m officially Belgian and South African!

As soon as I set eyes on my husband, I knew he was the one. I definitely believe in love at first sight.

I have a thing about the ocean, waterfalls and sunsets (and yoga photos in all these spots!).

I’m not ashamed to say that I finished watching ‘Orange is the New Black’ and ‘Breaking Bad’ at a rather unhealthy speed. I’m strangely fascinated with any programmes set in prisons. I think I may have been in prison in a previous life!

I love good coffee, smoked tofu and avocados.

I grew up being told I could be and do anything I wanted to in life… and I fiercely believe it’s never too late to begin again. Fear should never hold you back from doing anything you want. So, are you ready to live the life you’ve always wanted?
