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'm 51 years old.

I have a BIG heart and I'm here to remind others of their amazing-ness and their potential,

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 felt frustrated at the lack of answers, so I turned to an Ayurvedic doctor in a last ditch attempt at an alternative.

He looked at me with a smile, and said, "You're absolutely fine, you're 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 actually I was making things worse.

 

I haven’t looked back - thank goodness as I love food! 

It started to make 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 from painful swollen joints - doctors had diagnosed rheumatoid arthritis, at times my knee was so swollen and painful I could barely walk. My GP had insisted on draining the fluid - and it would just come back the next day. I have no more joint pain.

I love my life.

 

All of this I've managed naturally through understanding how food and lifestyle impacts our body, mind and spirit.

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 fun, 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 honour fully our human-ness and I honour fully our divine-ness.

I take risks, even when it scares me.

I trust my intuition.

I love... yoga. Moments of quiet. Kind words. Love and affection. Connection.

LAUGHTER.

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.
