Like an initial stress response, anxiety has an important role to play in helping us get around safely in the world and it can be a beneficial ‘early warning system’ in a range of experiences. But for many people suffering from anxiety, feelings of worry, anxiety or fear are a constant feature of everyday life and are strong enough to interfere with daily activities.
People with anxiety disorders are often unable to stop worrying about relatively unimportant things, and they often perceive situations as much worse than they actually are. Anxiety often disrupts work, relationships and self-perceptions and in some cases, diminishes the overall enjoyment of life. Anxiety is one of the most common mental health disorders within Australia, yet is also very treatable.
Laprana works to help reduce symptoms of anxiety through a series of calming and grounding yoga asanas, centring pranayama breathing techniques and mindfulness meditation. This combination of techniques work together to help calm the sympathetic nervous system, assist in the reduction of stress related hormones, improve sleep, concertation and your overall sense of empowerment and wellbeing.
Note: External Ayurvedic medical advice and treatment by a certified Ayurveda practitioner is highly recommended for individuals with Anxiety to provide crucial dietary, lifestyle, herbal and detoxification assistance.

BPsych(Hons) & Registered Yoga Teacher
My aim is to improve the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual wellbeing of the individual using a holistic, mind-body model of wellness. I take a philosophical, person-centred approach as I work together with the client to uncover the underlying issue at hand. By identifying the root cause of an issue, I believe we can more readily achieve transformative, lasting wellbeing. Based on the premise that every individual is complex and unique; treatment is tailored and personalised to suit the particular physical, mental, emotional and social needs of each individual.
After completing my Bachelor of Psychology (Hons) at Queensland University of Technology, I travelled to India where I completed my yoga teacher training course. Since then, I have lived between Brisbane, Byron Bay and Melbourne, working both nationally and internationally to integrate my passions in yoga and psychology.
By layering and melding ancient Eastern Yoga philosophy with more contemporary Western models of psychology, the profound principles buried in each of them become clearer and stronger, and an intensity of effectiveness becomes possible. Using a synergistic blend of techniques from both East and West, I believe deeply transformative, whole-self healing is possible.
