I am a woman of many loves and talents. One of my biggest passions is Aikido, closely followed by juggling, drama, song, yoga, dance, languages, inner work like co-counseling, group work and EFT, being with children, games and nature.

I got my Aikido 2nd Kyu(brown belt) at the age of 18 in Ki Society style in 1992. At that time I regularly assisted running Aikido classes at the Lismore Aikido club (with my dad, Rudran) and in local schools. After that I studied Aikido in Sapporo, Japan and got my Aikido Shodan (black belt) in Aikikai style in 2008. I now study Fudoshin style in Noosa and I teach children Aikido in Noosa weekly.

I did an exploration of the chakra system in a performance at the Adelaide folk festival in a dance musical piece called Tribe. I then went on to perform at the Adelaide Fringe Festival in another dance musical piece mixing old school crooning with modern techno beats. I have been in many amateur theatre productions with the University of QLD dramsoc at the Cement Box Theatre.

In Japan I continued with my love of circus skills by studying mime, and that ensemble performed at the Sapporo Street Performance Festival in 1999.

I am a part of the Joining and Being Woman communities. I facilitate workshops that involve one or more of the many loves I have-the aim of the work I do is supporting people to live full, rich, joyous, healthy and happy lives!! I love being in community with people who are conscious of growing and celebrating together.
