A nurse since 17, Ali has always been interested in food, cooking and eating. Her cooking career began in 1985 in a 2 year overseas working holiday in Europe. Ali landed a job as a cleaner/kitchen hand at the fabulous Aigas Field Centre, in the Highlands of Scotland. The centre catered for wealthy middle aged Americans wanting a taste if the highlands. The season's cook turned out to be a drunk, so Ali swapped dishcloths for wooden spoons and her cooking career was launched.
The 90s brought 2 children and a small family BnB at the edge of the Stirling Ranges. Being so far from restaurants Ali offered an evening meal, fuelling her passion for exploring new recipes and her "need to feed!" The naughties saw a move to Esperance, with cooking taking a backseat to nursing. Her roles as Cancer Support Nurse and Lactation consultant has highlighted the importance of healthy eating and has reinforced Ali's interest in making healthy food taste fabulous.
After attending the first Woody retreat, Ali talked Melisa into letting her help with the cooking and feels so incredibly lucky to combine her passions healthy cooking, yoga and our magnificent Woody Island.
Many of Katie's passions and loves are combined in the Woody Island Yoga retreat. As a botanist by training, artist focusing on the natural world, photographer and flautist musician, she will wear many diverse hats over the retreat, supporting the connection to the beautiful Woody Island nature during our yoga practice. Additionally, she has nurtured her own yoga journey since the young age of 10, after a disability limited her balance and mobility. She strongly believes in the importance of yoga for physical and mental health, and is excited to enhance the holistic benefits through sound, connection to place and celebration of the unique nature of Woody Island.
One Little Brush
From my home in the picturesque seaside town of Esperance, in Western Australia, I create beautiful art work using watercolour paints and black fine liners, in between being a Mum to two boys under 3.
Having always loved creating and painting from a young age, I take my inspiration from the nature around me and the beautiful blues of the ocean.
The creation of the gorgeous baby milestone cards had been a project in the back of my mind for a long time and i'm so excited to now be able to share them with you all.
