I first came to yoga in search of the therapeutic benefits. I was looking to help manage the chronic headaches and migraines I suffer from. Very quickly the physical practice helped lessen the occurrence and mindful practices, such as mediation and breathing techniques helped me to mentally and emotionally deal with an attack.
It wasn't long before I realised yoga is not just about stretching the body. It connected me to myself, to the present moment and brought (and still brings!) moments of peace into my days. - as a mother of two young boys this was very welcomed!
I wanted to learn more so I embarked on a teacher training programme and qualified with yogacampus, one of the UK's top courses. During my training I was taught by a range of senior UK and international teachers who all came from a variety of yoga traditions. This suited me perfectly as I believe yoga is not a 'one size fits all practice'. The beauty of yoga is that it has something to offer everybody.
I have been teaching for 18 months and continue to further my education, experience and knowledge by regularly attending workshops and retreats. I am grateful to all of the teachers who have passed on their knowledge to me, most recently Richard Freeman, Kathryn Budig, A.G and Indra Mohan, Julie Gudmestad, Liz Lark, Jill Amison, Claire Missingham, Christine May, Joanna Najduch and my main teacher who introduced me to yoga and continues to inspire me Andrew Wrenn.
