About Daphne

Hello and thank you for looking at my website.

Massage, Yoga and Pilates classes are a very personal thing and it’s important to feel comfortable.I find that when you learn a little bit about someone it helps you to know if they are right for you.

Firstly I am a mother to two gorgeous children who are teaching me so much. I am back working after some time out and I combine teaching my passion of Yoga and Pilates, giving massage treatments as well as teaching at the local primary school. Life is not dull but I thrive on the variety and all it brings to me.

I started my career as a Physical Education and Geography teacher in Ireland and took up Pilates to have something different for the students to do outside of traditional sports. This was long before Pilates was a popular mainstream activity. From there I taught in a Physiotherapy clinic after school working with people with injuries.
As I was approaching my 30’s, I knew a change was needed and I had always dreamt of living in Australia. That was in 2008!

It was here in Australia that my passion to learn more about the human body and mind developed and continues to do so. The more I learn the more I want to know.

It is the changes that I have felt in my own body and mind that have built my passion and belief in the powerful benefits of Yoga, Pilates, Feldenkrais and of treatments such as Massage and Acupuncture. These combined with good nutrition, having fun and living in a way that fully supports you really is the richness in life.

Everything starts in the mind. When you look after yourself, everyone else benefits. Too often people take care of themselves last and put everyone else first. I feel it is important to learn about you, your body,  your mind and become aware of how everyday things can affect you.
