Me & Yoga
I used to live my life filled with stress in body, mind and spirit, frozen, fearful and unable to find a way to accept myself, to flow and enjoy life. Since studying Hatha Yoga and the Eden Method and turning many corners, I began to feel happy (deeply, not superficially) and experienced a purpose I’d not felt before. Having experienced these benefits, I’d love to share them with you and so I’ve brought them together to create a powerful holistic combination for a full, expansive and joyful life.
Remember that we start from where we are. Yoga is for everyone whatever your background or ability to make positive changes in ourselves for the greater good.
In this integrated Holistic Hatha Yoga approach we bring awareness into the body away from what tends to be an over-busy, negative string of thoughts in the mind to a calmness within. We explore where and how the body wants to move to release held tensions, move the body’s energies, bring in spaciousness and health and vitality and build resilience and calm into the nervous system.
You do not need to do challenging headstands or handstands to participate and enjoy the classes. Your personal journey through yoga is more important than whether you do a one-armed balance! And you do not need to be flexible to do yoga. It’s yoga that will help you to become more supple!
Work safely within your own comfort and challenge yourself carefully with awareness in your body.
I have trained in a wide breadth of Hatha Yoga and also enjoy the influence of different yoga traditions and the inspiration of the many people I have practised yoga with.
Mother Nature is always an inspiration; from the solidity and strength of trees to the rhythm of the waves on the shore that echo the rhythm of our breath and the remind us to ‘just be’ . The natural cycle of changing seasons reminds us that nothing stays the same.
These practises have helped me in many ways over the years and I would love to share the benefits with you for your well-being.
I have a BA Hons and a Post Graduate Certificate of Education.
I’m a registered Diploma Teacher and Member of the British Wheel of Yoga (2007), the governing body of yoga in the UK which seeks to maintain high quality training and teaching standards.
