Our Story

Shelley and I both have a passion for sharing knowledge. During one of our many discussions on growth through education,  I proposed the idea of creating an online learning platform that could provide high quality courses in Complementary Therapy, Personal Growth and Business Management. Without a moments hesitation Shelley said YES, lets do it!
Combining Shelley’s 21 years experience (teaching yoga, Ayurveda and massage) and my own 30 years of running businesses (including 10 years in the training industry) made this a fantastic match.
Over many long conversations we discussed ways to share and  develop what we believe to be a great suite of courses and modules. Inward Pathways was born with the intention of offering you a wonderful opportunity to enhance your existing skills or develop a whole new career pathway.
We see all learning as a journey that aligns you with your true purpose. The gift of education and learning gives you the ability to develop a better understanding of who you are combined with insights into your core values.
We are grateful you are here and hope you love what we have to offer. Our wish is that  you find joy and inspiration on which ever pathway you choose.

Learning to help others

FIONA's Legacy
support for ovarian cancer research

At Inward Pathways we believe in the ideal of learning to help others. Aidan’s wife Fiona (pictured here) passed away in 2018 having faced the challenge of Ovarian Cancer for 6 years. As a legacy to Fiona’s amazing life, we have chosen to support Ovarian Cancer Research and $20 per course enrolment is donated to this cause.

Ovarian cancer is the eighth most commonly occurring cancer worldwide in women and the 18th most commonly occurring cancer overall. There were nearly 300,000 new cases in 2018. There is no early detection test for ovarian cancer.  All women need to be aware of the symptoms. (Learn more about symptoms)
