I’m Jade, I have spent the last fifteen years traveling and exploring different traditions, healing modalities, philosophies, shamanic practices and dedicated my life to reconnecting to the cyclical nature of my being and how this reflects inside the changes and seasons of the Earth. I live on a houseboat, and I am deeply connected to the elements, sleeping on water every night feels like I am carried back to the womb and my dreams reveal magic and a remembering. The Earth isn’t far away, and the fire keeps me warm at night. The wind often howls and whips around the windows and I feel a sense of being held by Mother Gaia and the elemental spirits.
I have been teaching yoga since 2014 to both adults and children in the community and I'm deeply passionate about the transformative power of connecting more deeply to our bodies as a portal to our divinity. The emphasis on my work is focused on coming home to ourselves by embracing the light within our hearts and the wisdom from source.
I have been on a massive journey since I began my healing path in 2007. I was so shy and terrified to be seen or heard. I knew that if I pushed through the uncomfortable feelings then there would be Gold at the other side. These fears rooted in a lack of self-love and acceptance of all my imperfections. So, I began to delve deep and hold myself and my inner child. I also work with children at forest schools, my inner child is fully alive, and I still love to climb trees and skip around barefoot. The children teach me many things every day and I endeavour to remain humble and grateful forever.
I also used to have very difficult moon cycles, whenever my monthly bleed came, I was in agony and like many of us, would take pain killers and just power on through in a state of dis-connect. I began to track my cycles, and this transformed how I showed up to myself and to the world.

I have been around powerful women and part of a strong sisterhood for many years, and this has shaped who I am and what I offer. I now feel at a place in my life where I am ready to share with women what I have discovered and hold the space for their journey of reconnection, of remembering.
I am excited to be a part of the team at Motherhub, I believe we can change the world by empowering women through pregnancy, childbirth, motherhood and beyond. For too long now we have given our power away to institutions that control and manipulate. I was present at one of my dear friend's hospital birth with her son, it was a shocking eyeopener for me that revealed a barbaric system of disconnection and powerlessness.
It’s time for women to reclaim our sovereignty, the rights over our bodies and the rooted knowing that with the right support together we can thrive.
