She is a constant student and is currently undertaking the Somatic Experiencing Practitioner training with plans for further professional studies in Gestalt psychotherapy. She is the director and lead teacher of Yoga for Humankind, a yoga school and social enterprise specialising in training in contemporary hatha, trauma-informed and community based yoga.
