“A 7 day Yoga and Ayurveda treatment changed my relationship with my arthritic knees. Throughout my 40s I struggled with knee pain and stiffness, the doctors told me to prepare for knee replacements, and expect to experience ongoing arthritic pain. After discovering Ayurveda I believed in magic! The pain relief was extraordinary. Yoga was once again a possibility, and threaded throughout my life. Now, with regular yoga my body benefits and my overall health and mood improves.”
In 2016, Jane completed the clinicians’ course with Trauma Sensitive Yoga Australia. Further studies on trauma, the brain and biology led Jane to complete yoga teacher training 350hr with senior teachers Elizabeth Bennett, director of Balanced Practice Yoga, and Amelia Disspain director of Yoga Bellingen. As an experienced counsellor, psychotherapist, group therapist, trainer, workshop facilitator and yoga teacher, Jane now trains yoga teachers and other practitioners in developing trauma sensitive approaches to their practice.
Research provides us evidence that talking therapy is not enough for trauma recovery – in the counselling room, all of Jane’s clients benefit from her yoga informed therapeutic style. Currently Jane is studying to become a Polyvagal Informed therapist via the Rhythm of Regulation workshop – with Deb Dana.
Jane’s therapy niche is grief, trauma, and anxiety. Her busy private practice is located in Mona Vale and also provides online counselling for clients in rural areas and work cover. Jane teaches one to one yoga sessions at Tranquillo Place and via zoom to clients on the northern beaches and across Australia.
