  • Description

    Hi! Thanks for checking out my profile. I love travelling the world, meeting new people and sharing inspiring stories. People describe me as honest, dedicated and hardworking. I joined Workaway as it gives me an opportunity to see more of the world, and teach yoga and give massages in lots of interesting places.

    I'm an experienced yoga teacher (3+ years) (RYT500) and have taught at ecolodges, hostels and retreats in Australia, Spain, Panama and the Netherlands. I teach private classes and group classes, from beginner to advanced level. Styles I teach include hatha, vinyasa, power, yin (certified), and sivananda.

    I have a bachelor degree in hospitality and have worked various hotel/B&B/Cafe jobs around the world. I'm an adaptable person that fits in easily in new situations, having spent most of my life on the move🌻
    I've worked on dairy, blueberry and avocado farms, so I know a bit about permaculture and horticulture. And I don't mind getting my hands dirty.

    I also have an international certificate in Sport and Deep Tissue Massage Therapy.

    I love hiking, doing yoga, being in the water, sleeping in hammocks, eating new foods and the occasional cheeky game of chess. Unique skills include being an epic Trivia night host, doing headstands on surfboards, getting people on the dancefloor, and keeping the bar/kitchen super tidy :)

    Feel free to reach out if you think I might be a good match for any opportunities you have! I'm ideally looking for a location that I can contribute to the daily running of a hostel, hotel or retreat, giving massages and teaching yoga as much as possible!
