I first discovered yoga as a child through my mother's home yoga sessions. I was fascinated by the postures and started to join in. This began a love of yoga that stayed with me into adulthood and after going through a period of extreme stress and anxiety due to my then high pressured job as a solicitor, yoga was my lifeline.
Yoga and mindfulness became such an integral part of who I am that I decided to qualify as a yoga teacher with Zenways, a specialist mindfulness and Buddhist based organisation, and then I studied NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) and qualified as a coach and these enabled me to leave my old work behind to pursue my dreams. It is no exaggeration to say that my life and health have benefitted dramatically and I've never looked back!
My experience of different types of yoga, my abilities and training as a coach and my qualification as a Sports Massage Therapist mean that I am able to bring special and valuable elements to my teaching which means you will get a unique style and experience.
My mindful yoga coaching will bring strength, toning and more flexibility to your body as well as relaxation and positivity, counteracting the stress and strains of everyday life and work.
Yoga is widely recognised as having profound benefits for health and mental wellbeing and is now endorsed by the medical profession, including the NHS. (http://www.nhs.uk/Livewell/fitness/Pages/yoga.aspx).
And, when you come to an Urban Yoga class you will also find accessible exercise, fun and that important "me time", so come along, join in and experience this for yourself!
I look forward to meeting you soon.
