Getting to know the crew:
Share with us a life turning point and the favourite lesson learnt?
The birth of my children. When my twin boys were born and I found myself at home with three children under two I realized I have no control. The ultimate lesson in letting go. My children have taught me so much about what is important to me in life, selflessness and patience. Most importantly I learned that we need to let go of the plans we had in order for the universe to work it’s magic through us and allow us to find and live our Dharma.
What sound do you love?
MUSIC, as a professional singer in many bands over the years, music and voice are a huge part of my life. Not just the sound but also the healing quality and potential of the voice as well as other instruments. Music is a big part of our NZ studio and we regularly run Acoustic Yin with live music. I also teach “Finding your voice” workshops in the studio, wanderlust and lovelake festivals annually. The vibration of sound & music crosses barriers we can’t even touch with just words.
What is your favorite word?
Aroha – in Maori it means LOVE or the sharing of our breath, our most intimate tool for connection.
