Why did you begin practicing meditation and for how long have you been practicing it for?
I first found yoga when I was in my early twenties in Bali with Adrian, when we had just started Aje. I was wildly into running at the time, which was very jarring for my system, but felt necessary in order to calm my overactive head. Yoga provided a means by which to move and stretch my body in a powerful yet gentle way whilst also allowing time to centre my mind. It became both a mental and physical reprieve for me. I found meditation quite some time after but wish I had found it in childhood. It has such transformative powers and has become a powerful tool to take with me wherever I go as it allows me to find calm in amongst times of madness.
Where is your favourite place to meditate?
My favourite place to meditate is on our farm in the southern tablelands. Meditating in nature, without distraction from the outside world, is so powerful as it allows you to connect on a much deeper level. I also had a very beautiful experience meditating at Gwinganna Lifestyle Retreat when my husband and I retreated there for some much needed time out post baby, earlier in the year. The location is very sacred for First Nations People and the energetic vibration of the place resonated very strongly with me.
