Calm Fairies Founder:
The inspiration for Calm Fairies came from my love of teaching children, combined with my own personal journey with managing anxiety resulting from a list of several medical conditions; countless blood tests and a handful of surgeries.
Throughout my whole life I’ve been immersed in learning, and I am fascinated by topics around childhood development; psychology; neurobiology; emotional intelligence; somatic healing practices; trauma and procedural anxiety.
When I couldn’t find a training to undertake that combined those things, I created it- for myself, and for you- so that we could have the right combination of knowledge and tools to truly help kids feel safe and calm.
I am a Yoga Therapist with over 15 years experience working with kids in a hospital setting. As a Level 3, Senior Registered Yoga Teacher (with Yoga Australia), and a Registered Children’s Yoga Teacher (with Yoga Alliance), I have been facilitating accredited Children’s Yoga Teacher Training since 2012.
Previous to teaching kids how to be calm, I was a KidFit Instructor; worked on a Children’s TV show and was studying to be a Primary School Teacher.
I LOVE working with kids from two to teen!
My work in hospitals began in the playroom, as a volunteer playing with patients and their siblings. One day a nurse saw me teaching yoga to the kids and asked if I would teach in the mental health ward. For the next seven years, I taught yoga and fitness three times a week in that ward.
When I completed my Yoga Therapy studies, I relocated, and again started volunteering at my local hospital. Since 2011, I have been generously funded for my work by a local charity organisation. Often dressed as a fairy, the nurses referred to me as “The Yoga Fairy”.
I have since integrated different calming modalities into the program, and had a fairy costume made, which led to the name “Calm Fairies”.
"Thank you for working your magic with our kids, and the other kids on the ward too... There is a brightening of spirits just at the anticipation of your visit"
