I started my journey with yoga 9 years ago after I had already begun a deep down search for more out of life and trying to discover my purpose on this earth. Before that, I had been working in the fitness and nutrition industry for 4 years, so my work in the well-being field has developed over 12 years.
With my previous fitness (including personal trainer) and nutrition qualifications added to qualifying as a yoga teacher 4 years ago, I genuinely believe this has all led me to the point where I am now. Last year I completed a Yoga and Mindfulness in Addiction course and trained in Reiki 1 & 2 as I wanted to deepen my understanding on how these alternative methods can contribute to our healing. In March 2018 I will be embarking on the A heart meditation facilitator diploma course, to further deepen my own practice, but also to be able to share my knowledge by teaching this on retreats, workshops and classes.
I believe yoga supports the healing of the body, the mind and the spirit. That it brings a sense of connection to the self and to a higher power/higher self and that from this awareness we can start to recover from illnesses, both mentally and physically.
The physical practice is very much based on a Hatha and Vinyasa approach, bringing in the balance of the yin and the yang. When I teach I help the student to understand how this is working in the body, to bring in a better sense of awareness and observation to the self.
By incorporating Karma yoga into my retreats I believe this will create a wholeness that will give and bring lasting blessings.Back
