I help people who need some calm, maybe it’s just a chill out, or maybe they’re anxious, overwhelmed & panicky. I use ancient yoga techniques, that are backed up by modern science, to help them feel relaxed and balanced, both mentally and physically.
I understand first hand how it feels suffer from anxiety and have panic attacks, how you feel a sensation of impending doom, the fast heartbeat and sweating, the disorientation and crushing heavy feeling in your chest. The pins and needles in your fingers and dizzy light-headedness, all these sensations sending you into a cycle of anxiety, panic and sensory overload. It’s important to understand it does not need to define you and there is a way to restore your calm and equilibrium. I first experienced yoga aged 15 at school, as a sensitive overthinker the immediate peace it gave me seemed nothing short of a miracle. Within just a couple of years it became essential to my life, struggling to maintain my mental health after the sudden and very traumatic death of my Dad. Since then life has had it’s ups and downs, including many difficult challenges but yoga has always been my route back to wellbeing every time.
I’ve been teaching since 2002 and it is my mission to pass on this sense of transformation to being calm and balanced, this is what yoga brings. Nothing makes me happier than to see my students calm, chilled and comfortable in their bodies, to see their wellbeing return, to see them thrive instead of just survive.
I have continued to be a student myself and gained lots of qualifications and experience in teaching Yoga. I hold a British Wheel 500 hour Diploma, which is the industry gold standard for teaching. I have a Level 3 Yoga Teacher Certificate with The Chartered Institute for the Management of Sport and Physical Activity and I am a Yoga Alliance Senior Teacher.
I think it’s really important that teachers are transparent about their qualifications so click here to read about mine. Always ask your teacher about their qualifications, never be embarrassed to ask about where and with what organisation they trained, the number of hours they spent on their Yoga teacher training is a key question to ask.
