I'm AJ. 24 years old. Born in Sydney, Australia, grew up in London, UK. I currently live in Wellington, NZ, with my partner Sam (who i'm sure you'll hear much more about soon), and whilst I miss my family & friends back home, I have never been happier.
Moving to New Zealand was my way of breaking out of a long-term toxic relationship. Whilst living through that was a really difficult and dark time for me, I know that it was an essential part of my journey that I needed to experience in order to learn the important lessons of who I am and what I want.
That phase of my life represented a time where I was most authentically and courageously myself, which, luckily, has ricocheted on to this day and allowed me to continue living as one of the best versions of myself.
I founded Zenaya Yoga in April of 2018 after graduating my 200hour Yoga Alliance teaching course. Teaching is one of my favourite things - before yoga, I taught English whilst living in Barcelona - and i've always gained great fulfilment from connecting with people in this way. I enjoy connection and sharing of knowledge and wisdom, and I believe so wholeheartedly in the benefits of yoga and practices such as mindfulness, meditation and journaling that I can't help but to spread that passion and work with people to help them find the beauty in all areas of their lives.
I hope you find something here that inspires you or sparks an interest, and please know that my door is always open if you ever need a little love.
