“It’s always been my belief that you have to love what you do, since you invest so many precious hours of your life doing it. I loved my work in the interior design industry, and yet after the death of my partner, the court case, travelling Central America and turning 30, I knew I needed to do more. I began to feel my values priorities change, I knew I could offer more to help others, help them with their minds, movement and breath, after all I’d been through I’ve learnt a few tools along the way!
There was a time when I used to focus all of my energy on staying up to date with the latest colour pallets, fabric designs and most prominent trends in home décor and design. Then I began to notice I was doing less design research and was instead delving deeper into the world of selflove, holistic nutrition, and soulful exercise.
It seemed to suddenly wash over me that, that which brought me the most fulfilment was not coming from the industry I spent so much of my time in, but was in fact, the passions I yearned to immerse myself in when I was “working.”
The transition was fun and it all became crystal clear. Why else had I been through so much in my life already? All the trauma I had endured through my younger years, was in fact a series of lessons I needed to learn. Those lessons have since equipped me with the tools I now use to share in my teachings with love and support.
Today, I lead from my heart and know without a shred of doubt that there is always a light to follow and everyone has a truth yearning to pour out of them and be lived.
Creating a space for people to heal and transform in surroundings that speak to soul became my new passion. A week filled with yoga, movement, meditation, nutrition, new experiences and fun to create new habits, belief and values.
Vidya meaning to gain clarity, became my new way forward. Internal and external exploration to trust and love your life.
