I have been practicing Yoga on and off since my early teens and more intensively over the past ten years. As my interest in Yoga grew I became aware of Energetic Healing and became a practitioner of Seichem Reiki and Traditional Reiki and trained in the King Method of hands on healing at the Aetherius Society. My career was initially in Mental Health Nursing from 1993 until 2012, but having developed an autoimmune disease in 2011 I struggled to continue and had to retire due to ill health.
I personally experienced the benefits of Yoga and Pranayama along with Meditation and Energy Healing in getting myself physically and mentally well again and trained to be a Hypnotherapist and EFT Practitioner. It seemed a natural progression to become a Yoga Teacher with the focus on Yoga as a therapeutic process. Today I work mainly 1:1 using Yoga and other therapies to help people with physical, mental and emotional problems heal themselves. I am involved in teaching Yoga for M.E and have run a free Yoga class in my local community aimed at those from a low socioeconomic background and with mental health and addiction problems.
My vision for the future is to bring Yoga and allied therapies to the people who need them, but are unlikely to access a regular class, as a form of ‘Yoga Outreach’.
