About

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.  Peacefulness is one of my favourite things, actually.   As is simplicity.   And a good espresso coffee.

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.

Cheerio.
