Ever heard of someone refer to their thoughts as a Monkey Mind? The Monkey Mind is a Buddhist term for a mind that is unsettled or disturbed, thoughts that can be restless, whimsical and uncontrollable. 


Mindful Monkeys uses Yoga and Meditation to gain control over the Monkey Mind. Mindfully connecting breath and movement to become conscious of your thoughts, your physical body and your subconscious self.

Since first practising yoga about 7 years ago I found my rhythm with Hatha Yoga and Meditation, mindfully connecting breath and movement. 
I am passionate about using yoga and meditation to create healthy minds.
I have since found a love for teaching Post and Prenatal Yoga, to mindful move the body through pregnancy and beyond.
