Coming from an extensive background in fitness and personal training in various disciplines, I discovered Yoga in 2002. Since then it has taken an integral part of my life, throughout my happy times and challenging ones. It taught me how to build an honest and kind relationship between body, mind and breath. Yoga shows the way to build strength and spaciousness, resistance and release in order to find equilibrium and freedom of movement.
Between 2002 and 2006, I was fully immersed in the fitness world where I embarked on the Personal Trainer path and fully qualified in 2005. Along the way I gained certifications in Aqua Aerobics in 2003, Stability Ball and Boxercise in 2006, which allowed me to gain a wider perspective and deeper insight into the fitness world.
Having honed my skills in sports programme writing, nutrition, flexibility, fitness assessment, anatomy and kiniesology, I was more able to help people achieve their goals wih appropriate guidance and tailored exercises to suit their needs.
Goals could range from toning, weight loss, muscle building, sports performance.
Having practiced yoga for my own wellbeing and pleasure, I fully qualified as Yoga Teacher in 2010 with the Kevala Yoga Centre Torquay. The course gave me access to a wealth of knowledge such as body postures (asanas), breathing techniques (pranayama), pre and post natal yoga and yoga for children.
Wanting to further my knowledge in the realm of Body and Mind wellbeing, I did a 2 year study in order to achieve the Reiki Practitioner Level 1 and 2 with the Natural Health Centre, Totnes. The aim was to find a non intrusive method to promote integration of the physical, mental and emotional bodies in a deep state of relaxation.
In 2015 I started a 2 year Post Graduate Yoga Therapy teacher training course with the Devon School of Yoga, Exeter. My wonderful teachers and mentors shared their wealth of knowledge and savoir faire in how to help prevent and maintain mental and physical health through self care strategies.
Why I chose Yoga Therapy?
The emphasis is to work on the physical body, mind and emotions or a combination of the three elements. A physical ailment can be exarcebated by stress, anxiety, anger, frustration, sadness and a variety of other emotions.
Yoga therapy can help tackle the problem holistically. It will help provide higher levels of awareness and understanding of the psychological and physiological patterns.
In its practical and tailored approach, yoga therapy helps improve overall health and wellbeing in the body and mind connection.
