I first encountered Yoga whilst at university, I knew very little about the subject but I liked the calm that attending a class brought.
I continued to practice throughout both of my pregnancies, and feel that it was due to my practice that I had two relatively straightforward pregnancies and labours.
It was after this that I felt the desire to share the gift of Yoga with others, and embarked on a teacher training course with Simon Low’s Yoga Academy.
Since graduating I have been fortunate to have gained much teaching experience leading group classes in both a vinyasa flow (dynamic and active) as well as restorative yoga (more gentle and introspective), and also teaching one-to-one classes to assist those suffering with a variety of medical conditions. My classes were voted the “best fitness class in Essex for parents” in the 2015 Essex Mums Awards.
I am passionate about teaching pregnancy and postnatal yoga completed my pregnancy and postnatal teacher training to an advanced level with Francoise Freedman of Birthlight. I have also attended specialist courses in promoting a positive birth after C-section, to aid recovery after C-section as well as promoting a positive birth experience with subsequent pregnancies. Teaching pregnancy yoga enables me to share with others the benefits I myself experienced through my practice during my own pregnancies. I have also undergone specific training in yoga therapy for women’s health, which covers areas such as fertility, prolapse and menopause.
I have completed Total Yoga Nidra teacher training with renowned teachers Uma Dunsmore-Tuli and Nirlipta Tuli of The Yoga Nidra Network. Yoga nidra is a fantastic gift I feel fortunate to be able to share. This is a deep, guided relaxation method which is incredibly beneficial for insomnia, stress, anxiety, post traumatic stress disorder, or just as a relaxation method.
I am currently studying with leading teacher Julie Friedeberger to offer yoga and relaxation classes to those affected by cancer.
I believe strongly that yoga is for all, regardless of age or ability.
