I am Catriona; yoga practitioner, mother, doula, jewellery designer and lover of life.
I am passionate about assisting people in re-awakening their inner joy, peace and power. Through the practices of asana (postures) meditation and pranayama (breathing exercises), we learn to open up the physical body and maximise ‘prana’ (life force). When we sit quietly we have an opportunity to tap into the brilliant intelligence that lives within every cell of the human body. The tantric idea that the whole universe exists within us and not the other way around is a powerful reminder of how expansive we are. In the modern world many have lost this sense of connection, not only to self but to the world around them. My classes help people rediscover the pathway ‘home’. I fuse this into my doula support for couples bringing new life earth side and also when creating jewellery designs. I like to offer people treasured pieces that have meaning and purpose and act as little talismans when worn.
I help re-awaken your joy and power through yoga, Doula and meaningful jewellery.
