She spent time with Shamans in the Amazon studying medicinal plants as she has a keen interest in the healing power of plants. As an environmental & human rights campaigner, she raises awareness on tribal land rights, rainforest & woodland conservation & nature therapies.

Yara has designed and led adventure travel trails for gap year travellers and has managed volunteers abroad on teaching & conservation projects. Yara assisted in starting up a school charity organisation in Cambodia and raised funding to build a Well to reduce plastic consumption in the community.

She helped to build an Orang-utan rehabilitation Centre in a Wildlife Reserve in Borneo.

 

Yara founded the Natural Healing Show on UK Health Radio, a platform raising awareness on natural healing and the natural world. She is a big advocate on the physical & mental healing benefits of spending time around trees, woodlands and nature.

Yara was featured in the Bushcraft & Survival Skills Magazine Sept 2017 issue on ‘Women in the Wild’ and is the 2018 presenter of The Bushcraft Show. She has appeared on ITV News speaking about the importance of having a positive mental attitude in Survival.

 

Yara’s love for the natural world inspires confidence in others in sharing their individual creative passions and to embrace new experiences. Encouraging to ‘step outside of the box’ to accomplish personal goals and to feel self-empowered.

Yara connects well with her audience, inspiring others to be self-driven; discover new abilities beyond boundaries, promoting independence, communication and teamwork skills.

""Her talk was incredibly inspiring,  and showed the importance of stepping out of your comfort zone. I spent the next two days excitedly looking up volunteering opportunities abroad."

Tilly Wax | The Speaker Captain | South Hampstead High School

"Great presentation on the jungle by Yara. She told her story of how her young London life wasn't satisfying her so she made a change. Stripped of creature comforts Yara travelled the globe and sought after adventures we only read in books or see on TV, truly life changing experiences. Students were enthralled at her story and at the end many students stayed behind to ask questions. Yara is a fantastic role model!"
