A little about me…
Through my treatments of holistic healing, I work with the physical, emotional and psychological bodies. There is no separation between body, mind, emotion. Every nerve ending in our body literally connects to a muscle fibre and so every thought you have or feeling you feel has a physical effect on your body...
I grew up in the rolling hills of the Cotswolds in the UK, after graduating from Bristol with a First Class Hons in Design. I moved to London to a alternative warehouse community that shaped my early 20's with many influneces and quickly discovered mediation and yoga whilst seeking to find balance in my hectic city lifestyle.
Through years of dedicated practice, I have learnt how these practices of yoga and meditation can be immensely healing. Learning to utilise it as a tool to help guide me through life, to be able to embrace each shifting moment with calm equanimity.
I am a Certified 200hr Multi Style Yoga Alliance and have done further training and practice in Yoga therapeutics (myofascial release) Yoga Alliance , with Tiffany Crukshank Yoga Medicine. Yin yoga with Norman Blair. Ashtanga Yoga, by studying Sri K. Pattabi Jois method at KPJAYI (ashtanga) intuited in Mysore India taught by his Grandson Sharath Jois. My daily practice with my teacher Mike Berghan at Te Aro Astanga. Other teachers I also have learnt so much from and consider my teachers Peter Sanson, Ruth Westoby and Sharmila Desai.
Through my teachings and treatments I aspire to pass on the knowledge and wisdom of my teachers, creating a safe space for healing and transformation.
The healing process of yoga and hands on adjustments naturally led me to explore massage therapy. I delved deeper into the understanding of Anatomy, which completely fascinates me!
I am a Certified Massage Therapist (Holistic Relaxing ITEC Level 3, Therapeutic Deep Tissue Massage BTEC Level 5 and CPD in Trigger Point Therapy) from The London School of Massage U.K. I have also been trained in Acupressure Seated Massage from Touch Pro U.K. I continue to learn deepen my understanding of treatments and Anatomy through continued CPD.
Whilst in London I had the opportunity to work with a wide array of people from different backgrounds at the established and renowned Life Centre; a well-being and yoga centre: the first of its kind in London. Whilst also treating clients at offices and home visits. My clients included yoga students, office workers, marathon athletes, extreme marathon athletes, sports enthusiasts, parents, VIP Talent, people with on-going medical conditions (MS, fibromyalgia...) people suffering with chronic and acute pain...
All my treatments are tailored for the individual client, with elements of yoga, mindfulness, breath work and therapeutics creating a space for relaxation, pain relief and re-balancing.
