I believe the essence to healthy living comes from not one but many aspects of our lifestyle. I value a regular yoga practice, an organic whole food diet and as much time as possible spent in nature to keep me feeling healthy and vibrant.
I find yoga to be powerful, yet gentle, giving me a deeper understanding of myself. It gives me the tools to self-manage my wellbeing during life's stressful challenges. Yoga has been a core value in my life for over 25 years and has undoubtedly changed my life and continues to do so!
8 years ago, I decided to step out of my comfort zone and become a fully trained yoga teacher so I enrolled in the 200 hour Dru Yoga Teacher training diploma. Since qualifying I haven't stopped studying, acquiring a 550 hour Yoga Therapy diploma and a Meditation Teacher training diploma. I regularly attend seminars and workshops to further my personal and professional development. I have completed additional training in Yoga Therapy and Mindfulness for Trauma, PTSD with Heather Mason, Yoga Therapy for Digestive Health with Charlotte Watts and completed CPD training with Dr Timothy McCall, author of Yoga as Medicine.
I am passionate about the therapeutic and restorative benefits of yoga in supporting people to restore balance and wholeness in their life.
"Dru Yoga has given me more peace of mind than I have known in a long time. It has also helped me to deal more effectively with stress. Last and not least it has helped me to lose much of the despair and grief that arose following a recent bereavement."
