I consider myself as a quiet achiever.  In 1972 after a series of life-awakening experiences I found my lifetime mission: to understand, live and value the higher purposes of being human.  Since then I have followed a yoga vocation and used my formal engineering-science background to create practical life skills to give people improved abilities to live healthier lives with less suffering.

For more than 30 years in a clinical setting I have been helping people with their mental and physical health challenges. I founded, directed and still work in the Canberra Medical Ecology Centres as a clinical biologist focusing on immune-related illnesses.  I established the Samyama School of Yoga in 1986 and since then have taught weekly classes in hatha and raja yoga.

After completing several thousand case studies on the effects that defence chemicals in our vegetables, salads, fruits and grains have on the human adaptive immune system, along with Rob de Castella, I founded the Deeks Health Bakery in 2004 which was the world’s first totally grain and gluten free bakery—the products of which have helped many people across Australasia to live a more normal life despite their diagnosed chronic immune related diseases.

I have published eight books on yoga and several self-help books on chronic immune-related illnesses.  I created the 10-week Nada Program which uses both the internet and physical workshops to guide people on proven methods to achieve higher quality lives.  With Larisa Zoska, I created a 10-week Kickstart Program, which allows people to self-determine a ‘Signature Diet’ specific to them alone—which promotes the best health possible for them at the present stage of their lives.  In workshops, classes and seminars I continue to teach people lifestyle techniques, tools and skills that improve their mental and physical health to live longer with better health and reach for their greatest potential.
