Vanessa De Marini
Transformational Master Coach
I discovered Hatha yoga at the age of 15 years old. Growing up in a very turbulent family, yoga brought a sense of comfort and connection that I did not find in any other area of my life.
Following years of yoga practice, I yearned for more and learned Reiki in Europe, and although a wonderful tool, this was not what I was looking for. I wanted something deeper, a tool for healing long endured inner pain.
By the age of 18, I discovered Vedic Meditation through a European aunt who had learned years before while living in Australia.
Upon returning from that trip I dragged my boyfriend along with me and became a student of Pre-eminent Vedic Meditation Master, Maharishi Vyasananda or simply, Thom Knowles in Woollahra, Sydney, Australia.
This became a life-changing discipline, practicing twice daily I was able to shift, heal and transmute the pain from my past into love and compassion. I learned to deeply forgive and to be grateful for all I have in each moment of life no matter what challenges I faced. I discovered that wisdom comes from healed pain and anger and depression are the result of buried, unresolved wounds, some of them ancestral.
The practice of yoga, pranayama and meditation has given me a deep resilience in life, a level of forgiveness, gratitude and willingness to surrender along with a deep sense of love for all experiences no matter how "good" or "bad" they may seem. I believe all life experiences are a gift. We just need to facet the diamond, so to speak.
I have continued a practice of Vedic Meditation for the past 24 years along with advanced studies of the Vedas and Mastering the Siddhis with Maharishi, enhancing and deepening my understanding of Ancient Eastern Knowledge and the cosmic laws that uphold the universe, in other words, the quantum field.
In my earlier years, I gained an Advanced Diploma of Journalism and then went on to study a Degree in Naturopathic Medicine taking from it a passion for Nutrition, or food as medicine and Holistic Couselling.
Following my thirst for more knowledge I continued my education gaining Certification in Energetic Healing, Ayurvedic Lifestyle Consulting, Transpersonal Psychology/Coaching, Reiki 2, Meditation and Breath Work Facilitation, and over 500 hours of Yoga Teacher Training in the Vinyasa and Yin disciplines, training with leading, world renowned Yoga Masters.
Throughout my life, I have been deeply committed to the healing arts in both my education and daily practices and rituals. My hope is to share this wisdom with you, to hold space for you so that you can heal your wounds, release the past, forgive and open your heart to your authentic self.
