I have been working with children for over 20 years and have spent the last 7 years working with children and their families (Children Ready To Learn 2011-2015; HealthyChildren; Happy Homes (2017)). This work has included the facilitation of parent care-groups as well as the leading of seminars and workshops in addition to instruction-time with children.
Having been a spiritual director since 2002 and have worked as a pastoral services co-ordinator, I am able to apply the skills of active listening to any encounter.
I have worked as a yoga teacher from 2005-2006, 2008-2013, and currently in the Verona area. I have developed and am developing a type of yoga called Earth Yoga which connects students with the seasons and cycles of the year and which is intended to be grounding, calming and enlivening.
