Your path to wellbeing
Meditation. Yoga. Self. Healing. Arts.
MYSHA is a multimodal, arts based practice method
which guides and supports you to achieve optimum levels of
holistic wellbeing and personal growth.
MYSHA was founded in 2002
MYSHA brings together the unique blend of
the ancient arts of meditation and gentle, restorative yoga (inc. asanas, pranayama, mantra) with
contemporary creative and expressive arts therapy processes and materials (inc. drawing, painting, sculpture, collage, felting, singing/sounding, music, movement, creative writing, sand play, and more).
Over more than a decade, the MYSHA method has expanded to incorporate:
mindfulness techniques and neuropsychotherapy
(developing an understanding of how your brain and nervous system functions),
Sacred Flow (MYSHA improvisational expressive dance for wellbeing),
Find Your Voice (MYSHA singing program),
MYSHA Music (mantras and spiritsongs for wellbeing),
sound therapy and sound healing.
When we immerse ourselves in a wide and rich variety of arts based modalities,
we are invited to explore, honour and embrace our multi-sensory ways of being human in the world.
Each person has their own personal wellbeing pathway to take.
Under the guidance of your experienced and qualified MYSHA therapist you will be supported to
find your centre and
safely reconnect with your very own, unique creative flow.
Through a new lens of self awareness and compassion,
you may begin to see the challenges, triumphs, hurdles, complexities and possibilities of life in new ways.
Over time, the MYSHA practice supports you to integrate your new knowings and take action towards living the life you choose.
We recognise that taking those first steps to seek out professional support can be confusing and costly.
MYSHA simplifies all this for you.
We offer a variety of services to suit your needs and your budget.

"At MYSHA, you are the artist and the expert in your own life.
No one else knows you better than you know yourself.
Learning to become your own compassionate witness, learning to really listen within, and practising how to connect with others
is all part of the success of the MYSHA practice."
