I was seven years old when I discovered Sports Acrobatics and I decided right then and there that I wanted to be the best. By the age thirteen I had won the world championship, by fifteen I had won it twice to prove to myself that the first time wasn’t a fluke.

Looking for a career that could launch off that success, I joined a cirque company in Moscow. While there, I developed a new act performing in a hemisphere of plexiglass filled with water. This has since become a new genre of cirque performance that is now known as “water contortion”. The success of the “Waterbowl” act garnered me a series of world prizes and opened the door for me to perform with the best of the best at Cirque du Soleil.

During my 25 year career I’ve performed around 8000 shows, 5000 of those with the “Zumanity”, the Cirque du Soleil show in Las Vegas. I was featured in “Time” magazine, “Playboy”, and twice on “The Tonight Show” with Jay Leno. I performed across the world at many prestigious events… and I also developed bulimia.

During this ‘wonderful’ period I was throwing up around ten times a day, drinking, smoking, and suffering from disabling anxiety. Instead of being able to enjoy these accomplishments, I was continually nagged by the sense that “I am not enough”, ”I’m not worthy of happiness and success”. The silver lining is that this pain brought me to Plant Medicine which ultimately led me to Clarity Breathwork.

Since learning about breathwork, I have been able to remember how to breathe fully; to understand how precious life is and mainly to embrace all parts of our being and free ourselves from harm. I have learned how to truly feel the power of forgiveness and find the clarity to be present at all times, using the medicine that is already in us – with the power of our breath. I am honored and grateful beyond words, to be walking this path; studying myself; studying life, and being of service to the Divine Clarity Breathwork medicine.

I’m so grateful to all my students from Sweatyoga Studio Auckland; to New Zealand in general; to my Cirque du Soleil family in Las Vegas, and to all those whose lives have crossed mine and will in the future. I would like to welcome you all on this journey with me as I look forward to organizing sessions and retreats with Clarity Breathwork, so we can all turn pain into power and wounds into wisdom.

With my deepest love and appreciation to all humanity.
Namaste.
