I embarked on my teaching journey 14 years ago. Over the years, I have guided many clients to a healthier lifestyle – in both private and group sessions. I love teaching different people and meeting them where they are at with their bodies – I enjoy witnessing how their health and wellbeing improves by incorporating these simple practices.
My Teaching Practice
I’ve always been interested in how our body’s energy is influenced by movement, the environment and the food we put into it. This has led me to study and qualify in many different, but related, modalities: Personal Training (RIA), Yoga (RYT200), Pilates (BASI), Shiatsu (Shiatsu Society UK), Clinical Nutrition (IAN), Reiki (Usui Reiki Ryoho) and Mindful Eating (MB-EAT).
I’ve always loved movement arts, but have never been a very good dancer! With yoga and Pilates I was able to enjoy feeling movement flow through my body, without concern for having bad rhythm or stepping out of time.
Yoga, Shiatsu and Mindful Eating are practices that have had the most profound impact on my life. Besides their practical aspects, I’m drawn to their philosophical, spiritual and energetic aspects.
When I’m not teaching, my own daily practice includes yoga, Pilates and running. I have a deep connection with the ocean and have always lived close to her. I surf as often as I can and when there’s no waves, I like to run along side the sea and sense her rhythm.
After 2 pregnancies and 3 babies (do the maths on that one!), I enjoy the stillness and peace that yoga and mindfulness allows me to feel. My body has changed and it now responds differently to different movements. I’ve learnt to allow my body these changes and not try to push it where it doesn’t want to go.
I’ve explored health and healing through many modalities. This has helped me to find balance in my own life, and guide my clients to find balance in theirs.
I like to view balance in terms of the yin yang symbol. At the extreme yang, it becomes yin; at the extreme yin, it becomes yang. There’s a little of each in the other. Together they find balance. We are all yin yang. Sometimes more yin than yang, other times more yang than yin. With the right guidance and practices, we can spend more time in that perfect balance of yin equaling yang.
If this resonates with you, if you’re looking to find some balance in your training and health regime, join my practice.
