Mother. Yogi. Teacher. Student. Guide. Retreat Owner. Coach.

In a previous world, I had a very busy existence working on superyachts around the world. Yes, the lifestyle was fun and fabulous, but it took its toll and I realized I valued health more than glitz and glamour. I got out of yachting and pursued my love for yoga with a teacher training course in Costa Rica, and now specialise in yin and breathwork.

Having worked in luxury hospitality for years, I realised I wanted to be autonomous and offer my own brand of luxury – authentic and attainable wellness. And so my retreat haven Pineapple House was born in Canggu, Bali in 2015, as I wanted to bring hospitality and surf and yoga offerings together. Today I wear many hats, including that of Health & Happiness Strategist.

As a single mother and entrepreneur, life can be busy, overwhelming and challenging, but over the years of teaching yoga and working with some of the best wellness professionals around the world, I’ve tried, tested and learned techniques to maintain calmness and clarity. I live by these principles, and I can truly say that I am content, regardless of what life brings. 

We all hold the key to our own health and happiness, but when our minds and bodies are clouded and cluttered, we cannot see the woods for the trees. And so we end up on a mission searching for the answers outside of ourselves. 

I believe that when we live in alignment with who we are and really respect and honour the body we were born with, life begins to get magical. When we can cut through the sense of separation between who we are and who we want to be, life unfolds effortlessly before us and we cultivate trust in ourselves.

This is the journey I went on, and I would love to share with you the tools I use, which not only got me to ‘the good place’ but keeps me there when life brings its inevitable ups and downs.
