As CEO of Chrysalis Academy, I have witnessed first-hand the transformational power of mindfulness when cultivated through our programmes. Staff and students benefit alike.
I have been practicing Integral Yoga for 12 years. I qualified at the Ananda Kutir Ashrama in 2006 as a level 1 yoga teacher and subsequently obtained the Level 2 Yoga Therapy teachers training qualification. I also completed studies in India in the Satyananda Tradition in Ajapa Dharana and Prana Vidya. My mindfulness journey began with training under Rob Nairn culminating in a 10 day retreat and then further training with Cathy-Mae in London 2013. I hold a BA, M.Ed in Adult Education and an MBA.
Mindfulness changes everything – attitude, wellbeing and ultimately one’s entire being. It leads to a discovery of what is already here within us. I am passionate about leadership development and the transformation of institutions as vehicles for positive change and I believe that mindfulness training enables people and institutions to achieve their full potential. In my mind, yoga (oneness) = mindfulness if practised with conviction, patience and moment to moment awareness.
