My Approach to Yoga
For me, Yoga is a way of living a good, happy & healthy life. I have been practicing Yoga for over 30 years and living it for about 10. I am passionate about the myriad of benefits of Yoga for everyone and every body. I believe it should be inclusive and accessible for all.
When people ask me what type of Yoga I teach, I say 'Therapeutic Hatha Flow'. This is my own unique style of Yoga that I have developed. I take practises from a wide range of teachers and schools of Yoga and add my own experiential interpretation to the mix! Yoga can help with physical and mental health for example back pain and anxiety and depression.
A typical class will start with some simple breath awareness and limber exercises followed by a slow flow sequence from lying down to seated through to standing postures and back down to the floor again. I always end with a meditation or relaxation.
My focus is very much on Health and Wellbeing and the importance of self-care and self awareness so we can become the best version of ourselves. I can assure you that you will feel better at the end of a class than when you arrived, whatever state you arrive in!
My areas of expertise and special interest are Yoga to support Mental Health. Last year I qualified as as Yoga In Healthcare Alliance Teacher so I can now deliver the Yoga4Health course, a well researched protocol that improves people's health outcomes in a number of ways:
Improve stress, anxiety and depression
Improve heart health
Lower the risk of Type 2 diabetes
Improve Social connections
Improve overall health & wellbeing
I have been practising Yoga for over 30 years and have been a teacher for 6 years. I grew up in Devon before moving to London for University and then travelling extensively worldwide. I met my husband at Glastonbury Festival in 2004 and I moved to the North West 2 years later. I am married with 2 children, 2 cats and a dog!
