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.
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.
