ALL ABOUT EVE
I am a proud Wiradjuri woman. My mother is descendant -Dolly Gladis Parker of Parkes and my father-Edward Lee from Dubbo, both regional NSW Wiradjuri people.
My belief is that we can bring about deep healing through connecting people back to their culture and back onto country. Connecting with culture on country with elders through ceremony, art, dance and bush medicine has helped me in so many ways, I want to share this with others. I have been lucky enough to pass on some of this knowledge to schools and companies around Australia through my four years as a Senior Educator with Wandana Aboriginal Events and Education.
As Senior Educator, I managed the expectations of multiple high-level stakeholders within the Education system. Collaborating to program student sessions between existing curriculums, and working with changing teams each time we entered a new school was challenging and rewarding. This experience would transfer into a position where teamwork and collaboration is key.
In 2015 Eve created MermaidFit an aqua fitness class incorporating, yoga ,chi-gong, dance and mermaiding. Teaching at birthday parties and regular classes in the summer in ocean pools.
I am not the one in five Australians who suffer from mental illness each year. In an effort to empathise and understand those who suffer from poor mental health, I have been an ambassador for One Wave for 6 years, volunteering my time by sitting in circle, listening to others share their mental health journey and then teaching Yoga.
I am proud of the work I do daily, connecting yoga and culture to bring healing to all people. My personal mission is to extend this healing and awareness all over Australia. I have been a teacher for many years but I am always a student of life.
If one person is suffering then we all are. If our land, water or sky is sick then we all are. I want to heal and be healed through culture and connection.
A conversation can change a life! To inspire and empower everyone to meaningfully connect with the people around them and start a conversation with anyone who may be struggling with life.
