About Me

* I divided time growing up between California and England, and after traveling for 4 years and now being settled in Wales, I've learned that home really is where the heart is and the most important thing in life is relationships with like-souled people. * I lived in Fiji for 6 months when I left school educating about HIV/AIDs and working with a disadvantaged youth group. Then I gypsied the East Coast and Central Australia for a year, camping, hitchhiking and following the work but more so the festivals.

* I traveled in New Zealand and lived in an ashram there, where I got more deeply involved in yoga practise and "Bhakti" philosophy. Bhakti means love and devotion, and I am committed to the goal of doing everything in my life with this consciousness. *

Interests

I live in Cardiff where I manage a yoga café. Much of my life is invested in the mission of spreading this knowledge and love to others, so I love teaching yoga, meditation, dance and spending time with other spiritually-minded people. I am vegan and into healthy lifestyle and natural therapies.

Music, Movies & Books

Kirtan, a style of music meditation, is my life and I often listen to, participate in and leadsing kirtan. I play harmonium and sing, which is cathartic, creative and connecting.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Climbed 10km up a mountain... barefoot... in the dark!
