YOGA | Pilates

15-min complimentary consult
I had always keen to understand the movement capacities of the
human body as well as bringing solutions to people’s health issues. I decided to study
Physiotherapy for my undergraduate education. 
After graduating as a valedictorian, I pursued further training in manual therapy, women’s
health physiotherapy, yoga, restorative yoga, mat and Pilates.
Previously running my own physiotherapy practice for three and a half years, I take a holistic
treatment approach. Experienced in treating musculoskeletal injuries, I have a special interest
in pelvic floor rehabilitation and sexual health therapy.
No system in the body ever works alone, never gets injured alone and never heals alone.
Therefore, the best approach for any kind of chronic pain is to observe the body closely as a
whole and combine this with corrective exercise.
Having completed more than 26 different trainings, congresses and symposiums in my field
and believing that the learning journey never truly ends, I moved to Melbourne, one of the
most livable cities in the world, to pursue a postgraduate degree in physiotherapy.
