(about . camilla & yoga)


Day after day I rose at 6am for a crisp morning walk along the sleepy streets of Sydney’s Roselle. My destination was a small weather board hall at the end of a colder-sac where an older lady taught Iyengar Yoga. I can still smell the wafting scent of eucalyptus as we practiced and see the filtered sunlight illuminating my moving limbs. One day after class as I was putting on my shoes, a man walked up to me and said ‘you have the light of the world in your eyes’…. I was 24 and on an exchange with the ABC as a radio journalist. What this man saw was a truth, movement lit me up and my yoga practice was a sacred space. In 2002 I left the radio and moved to New York to dance and there I became a yoga teacher.
