Geraldine has instructed body/mind exercise classes for adults and children, and has
managed the Happy Mountain Yoga Studio in Alstonville, for 20 years. After working in
corporate fitness and various fitness centres, a desire to bring the community together
through music, movement and mindfulness for the wellbeing of the whole self, led her to
create such a space.

a much wider community, at the same time allowing participants an increased sense
of freedom of movement, away from the constraints of their inhibitions. Geraldine
hopes that participants will embrace her online classes as a place where they can
“dance like no one is watching” from the safety of their lounge rooms.

In 2014 Geraldine worked with psychologist Claudia Valenzuela, creating Therapeutic Cd’s
for children and adults with PTSD..the Cd’s were based on affirmations specific to the client,

has contributed to a passion for painting portraits.
