I led myself down the holistic route to get my health and, ultimately, my life back, after being diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome then PTSD many years ago, which left me unable to function.
Along the way I stepped into my role as a teacher and wellness guide and I discovered I have a skill in teaching and happiness in sharing my practice and life experience with others, all centred around yoga, ancient wisdom and practical brain science.
My studies have included hatha, ashtanga, vinyasa, yin, yin yang and aerial yoga. Of these, yin yoga was the completing piece of the jigsaw for me.
Yin is where my healing and process find their natural flow. While I was being treated for depression thirteen years ago, I developed a fascination with how the human brain works.
What my consultant shared with me about my brain and the mind/body connection was incredible, and I needed to know more.
This drive to understand more led me into gaining my PhD in Metaphysical Science.
The fact that I had gone from being unable to function, to completing a PhD, was beyond any belief I had about myself.
I never imagined I would be able to use my brain, and heal my body and mind, to the extent that I have.
The intensity and depth of my yoga training and academic studying and the way in which they come together in my sessions has created my unique style of teaching yin yoga.
Postures, nurture and calm are combined with the brain science behind the practice and meticulous preparation, bringing wisdom and learning from many different sources into each session.
Counselling on stress management and how to mitigate against the devastating long-term effects it can have is woven into my teaching.
I bring healing stillness into people’s lives in order for them to better manage their challenges and find – and enjoy – the balance that is so often missing.
My yoga classes, courses, workshops and retreats are for everyone.
