Diabetes is a serious, complex condition in which the body’s ability to produce or respond to the hormone insulin is impaired, resulting in abnormal metabolism of carbohydrates and elevated levels of glucose in the blood. This autoimmune, metabolic disorder may be due to the immune system destroying beta cells within the pancreas and as a result, failing to producing insulin (Type 1) or the body becoming resistant to the normal effects of insulin and/or gradually loses the capacity to produce enough insulin in the pancreas (Type 2).
Yoga and pranayama is important for individuals suffering from both Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes. Not only do these exercises reduce levels of stress, increase self-esteem and improve overall wellbeing, but they can also be useful for diabetes symptom reduction. Yoga and may be helpful for managing the symptoms of diabetes in both the short and long term by:
• Increasing blood supply to various parts of the body
• Improving insulin administration
• Improving blood glucose levels
• Providing a cardio activity
• Reducing cholesterol
• Lowering blood pressure
• Building lean muscle tone
By learning a tailored yoga and pranayama practice, specifically designed for you and your body, you can reduce symptoms of diabetes, learn to better manage stress and improve your overall physical and mental well-being.
Note: External Ayurvedic medical advice and treatment by a certified Ayurveda practitioner is highly recommended for individuals with Diabetes 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.
