amphibious yogi

Hello.  My name is Vanessa.

I was born in England and migrated to Australia in 1990.  Between 2003 and 2016, I spent many happy hours leading yoga and meditation classes.  These days my mission is to focus on my lifelong study and practice of Tibetan Buddhism.  Some might say I’m a bit of a hermit.  They would be correct.

Why amphibious?  I’m heartily grateful for my life on land.  Likewise, I have buckets of gratitude for being able to enjoy salty sea swims.  I love bubbling along with fish friends in peaceful waters here in Western Australia.  Peacefulness is one of my favourite things, actually.   As is simplicity.   And espresso coffee.  And aromatic teas.  Oh yes… feeding birds is a favourite daily ritual too!

On this site, I occasionally jot down little musings.  Over on Instagram, I share simple images of the world around me.  I’m not selling anything.  Neither am I preaching.  So if you find yourself here or there, please just breathe smoothly and enjoy a few moments of peaceful wandering.
