Hi! I'm Honor :)
I'm little, I'm passionate about holistic healing and I laugh a lot! Even when I get nervous I tend to smile. Joy and the colour yellow are ingrained into my cells.
I have a BIG heart and I'm here to remind others of their amazing-ness and their potential, (although my little brother reminded me recently on social media that's
because I'm bossy... haha...)
I'm Pitta Vata, with the fiery courage and determination of Pitta, and a constant stream of Vata ideas and changing things up.
My first yoga class was in Sri Lanka in 1996, in the first few seconds I was hooked!
I knew I'd love it even before I went and it was only a matter of time before I decided to teach. In 2002 I gained distinction in a 2 year C.H.Ed Yoga teaching diploma.
My most inspirational teacher is Monica Haar, my first Iyengar yoga teacher.
I will be forever grateful to her, giving an Iyengar grounding to my training.
My interest in Ayurveda is a bit more more recent.
I had ongoing stomach problems, pain, swollen joints, fatigue, mental upheaval and all sorts of meds (some making things worse), and specialists advised me to have a colonoscopy to find a diagnosis.
I wasn't convinced so turned to an Ayurvedic doctor in a last ditch attempt at an alternative. He looked at me with a smile, and told me "You're absolutely fine, just eating the wrong food!". (I honestly didn't believe him at first!) I'd thought I was getting more and more healthy - raw food, smoothies and uber-healthy stuff. But no, not the case - it was making me worse.
I haven’t looked back - thank goodness as I love food! It also made sense why I was anxious, had dry skin, a flaky scalp, sore lower back and I had stopped getting my period - in Ayurveda this is all connected. I also healed myself from painful swollen joints - doctors had diagnosed rheumatoid arthritis and at times my knee was so swollen and painful, my GP insisted on draining the fluid with a big fat needle - not fun! (And it would just come back the next day...)
Crumbs what a relief it was to finally be able to eat normally and be in control of my health! Now I'm absolutely fine - THRIVING. Ayurveda's so fascinating and uses plain common sense which I love.
I studied with Dr Ajit (Australasia's most experienced Ayurvedic doctor) and qualified as a practitioner in 2016. I completely LOVE what I do - helping others to be the BEST version of themselves.
I don't like to take life too seriously :)
Compassion, kindness and courage are super-high on my agenda.
I believe in awareness, growth and a daily practice of appreciation.
And I believe illness isn't JUST physical - our mind and thoughts are powerful creators.
I love my life. I've learnt to love myself - it didn't come naturally to me.
I believe that we're spiritual beings learning to live in a human body which makes us pretty ahhh-mazing!
I take risks, even when it scares me.
I trust my intuition.
I love... yoga. Moments of quiet. Kind words. Love and affection. Connection.
I love my family (which is well-blended...)
I love music - dancing - wall twerking.
I love to give.
I love beautiful spiced chai. (Of course haha!)
I love life. I love each day. I love you.
Even if I haven't met you. Because I am you. You are me.
We are one.
