"My life over the last 8 years has been some of the best and most traumatic moments of my life. I have lost both my parents, my father suddenly and tragically and my lovely Mum to cancer. I have gone from being burned out in a job that wasn't right for me to finding my calling in life. I met the love of my life and had my beautiful daughter Farrah during a pandemic. There have been many ups and downs but what has kept me sane during all of this is my morning meditation practice. Just 15mins in the morning focusing on something as simple as my breath has kept me grounded in the most tumultuous of times.
I want to bring meditation to as many people as possible with the hopes of helping people to realise that meditation is for everyone. It helps, not some of us, but all of us. The only thing we have to rely on from the moment we are born until the day we die is the breath. It is the only thing that is constant and if we are kind to it and we nurture it, it will help us through the toughest of times. I keep the classes simple and relatable and they're only 15mins. 15mins is nothing. Everyone has 15 mins to spare! "
