I did my teacher training with Nicky Knoff and James Bryan at the Ashtanga Yoga Academy in Cairns which I started in 1994 and continued for about 18 months. I then did another 6 months training with John Leebold at the Western Australia School of Yoga in Perth. I taught in both centres. Since then I have spent one month in both Pune with the Iyengars and Mysore with Pattabhi Jois. I have visited the US and did some workshops with great teachers including Richard Freeman and Tim Miller. My main practice is Ashtanga but I also teach some vinyasa classes and I still continue to study Iyengar yoga.
I have taught here at the Gold Coast Yoga Centre since 1997.
My Guru is from the Advaita Vedanta tradition, his name is Papaji from the lineage of Ramana Maharishi. Since 2003 I have been ordained as a Zen Monk/Preist with my teacher Hogen Yamahata and am continuing my studies with him.
I am moving at the pace of a snail's walk.
