Yoga is for Life
a body wise approach to flourishing
“I'm coming home to my body, after years of abandoning it. Home to living with a felt sense of my interior landscape, constantly amazed at the wisdom and richness of this inner world. Showing up more in my life and my community by being more courageous and authentic”.
Neuroscience is showing us that being in the body takes us out of the stress response and into a place of relaxed readiness. It's also showing us the value of kindness, to our selves and others. These two elements change what's happening in our nervous system. They are at the heart of easing our stress and healing chronic illness.
Whatever your challenges in life, this is the path I offer, a body-based path that draws on ancient and modern wisdom and follows ways of working that are psychologically in tune with the western mind. I weave Yoga, Mindfulness, Compassion and Shamanic Practice to support you on your journey to resilience and flourishing.
My life path has been influenced by having chronic fatigue for several years as a young adult and working in the high pressure environment of the City of London. These experiences set my compass for life. My quest to heal the underlying causes led me to this well-being work. Over the last 19 years I have been teaching and developing my skills in mind-body based practices and how to work in a trauma-sensitive way.
I specialise in supporting people in gradually accessing their own body and movement when it feels unsafe and painful. I specialise in working with trauma and in its manifestations of chronic pain, fatigue, anxiety, depression and chronic illness. I enjoy offering 121 sessions fine tuned to the individual's needs. I also love holding safe spaces for groups where we can share, experience and tap into the added power of social connection.
