CREATIVE | MENTOR
"I'd like to pay my respects to the Whadjuk people here on Noongar Boodjar (Country).
This is the place I call home and where majority of my yoga/dance/events are held (Perth, Western Australia).
I would also like to acknowledge the elders past and present. I will continue to send compassion,
resilience and love to the future leaders."

"It is my purpose in this lifetime to share my passion for dance/movement. To shed light in situations where darkness smothers. To love and serve all beings equally." - LAMB
"As a former professional dancer, movement has always been fascinating to me. To be able to make a living out of the activities you love is important to me but understanding how to do so can be difficult. I have created a life that is balanced between giving back and paying it forward all whilst literally dancing through it. This is why I offer classes for all types of humans exploring movement and release through many styles of dance and yoga."

"Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will"
When you join my class, I will address your strengths and needs individually and lead you in the right direction to reach your goals whatever they may be. Take a minute to look at my weekly schedule and book a class today.
Ashtanga Vinyasa classes are open to anyone looking for a challenging, vibrant style of yoga. In this style of you will move through a set sequence of postures with the breath.
This sequence, combined with the breath, has a powerful effect on the body and mind. The heat created in the practice has a detoxing effect and allows you to move into postures deeply. The flow of the practice, always guided by the breath, allows the mind to move into a calm, meditative space, which is why Ashatnga Yoga is sometimes referred to as a moving meditation.
Ashtanga led classes/workshops are open to students of any level.
Vinyasa is a type of yoga that links movement and breath to attain balance in the mind and body. From the Sanskrit “to place in a special way,” vinyasa aligns a deliberate sequence of poses with the breath to achieve a continuous flow.
Yin Yoga postures are more passive postures, most of these classes you’ll spend on the floor and each position is held up to 5 minutes. Yin is a calming practice that works deep beyond the muscle and into then fascia. This helps to loosen and release physical pain, reduce emotional stress and with a gentle approach towards opening the heart and mind. Join us in our welcoming space and rest whilst the sun sleeps and the moon appears.

I have a lot to say
Having spent many years travelling around Australia working with young and younger people from remote communities to large cities, I have an abundance of experience I love to share with our next generation. From my experience dancing and teaching yoga, my knowledge of Ayurveda, appearing on TV shows to spending months in India & rural Australia as a young woman who choses a plant based lifestyle. It is my ultimate goal to share love with young people and give inspiration to achieve whatever they set their minds too.
Photoshoots | Video production | Live performance
One of my most favourite things to do is create alchemy. Creating magic out of nothing. I find so much joy in sharing the love of creativity with students and artists. If you are needing a little extra fire to your flame, I would love to assist you or even take the reins.
