Yoga is a psycho-spiritual
practice for all
Why I Yoga and
For many years I was advised by healthcare professionals to avoid yoga due to my complicated spinal condition. Whilst yoga is amazing for most people with back pain, for me personally, I was advised against it. For many years I followed the advice, but still ended up having major spinal surgery.
A few years post surgery I followed my gut and attended a yoga retreat (talk about going for it!) I would never advise going against medical advice - if that advice is also accurate of course. Due to the lack of teachings around the roots of yoga in the West, the advice I was given was not accurate! During the retreat I discovered that, yoga is about LISTENING to your body and adapting movement accordingly, along with using the breath to heal, move and calm the mind.
It’s not about pushing or forcing yourself through pain.
As an ex-athlete I was used to pushing my body through pain barriers. Yoga is NOT that practice and no one ever told me. Whilst I acknowledge the doctors were completely right to advise me to avoid yoga as we see it on the surface (I know there are many yoga practices my body does not like), what I, nor the medical profession understood, is that yoga really is for all!
I had no clue just how many types of yoga practices there are out there. So it turns out, not only did I end up becoming a dedicated yogi (yoga is also about how you live off the mat) I am now a teacher!

Yoga originated from ancient India and has a deep spiritual connection to it. It’s a moving mediation that opens you up to yourself.
It has a deep healing element to it through its connection to the breath and balance of the mind, body & soul.
In the ancient language of Sanskrit, yoga means ‘union’.
Yoga for Healing
After exploring the roots of yoga and different types of practices, I discovered that yoga plays a big part on a healing path. My own conditions improved after discovering the truth about yoga as a self care tool. The movement and poses (asanas) are simply a useful gateway to the deeper layer of what yoga is and does.
I teach yoga from its ancient roots as a psycho-spiritual experience. I aim to empower and teach people from all different backgrounds the benefits of practice for their personal needs.

This has given me the opportunity to connect with my body and realise how much tension and anxiety I'm storing right now. I've neglected myself a little this week so glad to have noticed it now.”

ONLINE BEGINNERS YOGA PROGRAMME
My online Beginners Yoga Programme is waiting for you to grab hold of and learn about the deep transformational roots that will transform your life. Think Yoga is only an exercise / stretching class you participate in once a week on the mat? Yoga is a lifestyle and I am going to show you how.
My Programme, ‘More than Asana’ will completely transform your current yoga practice, or introduce you to what yoga really is from its roots.
Asana means ‘seat’ but in modern yoga, we call the physical poses ‘asana’. In my programme, we go beyond the physical and deeper into the transformational, psycho-spiritual roots of this 5,000 year old practice.
🧘🏻♀️What yoga really is
🧘🏻♀️What is pranayama (breath work), techniques, the history and benefits
🧘🏻♀️We explore some of the basic physical poses, the alignment, energetics, philosophy and mythology for each one. I also share various different ways to connect with each pose based on how it feels in your body (there is no perfect pose!)
🧘🏻♀️We look at how to soften the ego and what that means
🧘🏻♀️Different types of yoga
🧘🏻♀️The history of OM & Namaste
🧘🏻♀️We slowly build a peaceful flow sequence you can take at home as much as you like.
🧘🏻♀️We explore the ‘Koshas’ (layers of self)
🧘🏻♀️Meditation - what it is and ways to practice it
🧘🏻♀️The language of yoga - Sanskrit.
Included in the programme are 6 modules broken down into different themes, modification/variation videos & a bonus intro to Yin Yoga session.
You will finish the programme with a deep understanding of yoga and how to take it into your daily life, cultivate a home practice and/or find a yoga class locally to you that suits your yoga goals.
You will feel free in your body, any stiffness will reduce, you'll feel more calm, connected to self and all that is.
You'll BECOME a Yogi without having to leave your home to visit a studio!
