'for the fire in your belly'
A LITTLE MORE ABOUT ME
Anyone who knows me knows I love all things YOGA. I eat, sleep and breathe it. Being an anthropologist, I am fascinated by people and to what makes us tick. I'm not just interested in the bright bubbly side but also look to those darker moments which, once illuminated, help us to connect with each other. When creating bespoke yoga programmes I therefore delve a little to find out a bit about you and your lifestyle. The more of a connection you can make between your own mind, body and spirit, the greater enjoyment and progress you can make along your yoga path, I am here just to guide you. So, whether it be working towards a headstand, working up a sweat with a complete full body vinyasa flow workout, focusing on your hamstrings, practicing your backbends or simply sitting quietly in meditation, I will try to help you in your journey.
I teach yoga to mums & babies and adults in group classes. I have primary and secondary schools on my books also, teaching in after school clubs and Enrichment Days as part of mental health and wellbeing initiatives. This definitely is a growing field, not least because of the current climate we are in. I work with athletes and sportspeople and the over 60's. I am a cover teacher at the FeelWellbeing Studios in Hertfordshire. I have private clients working on a 1:1 basis and couples or families. I can organise party packages for groups of people also. I have experience of working in a hotel health spa, studios, people's homes, my own home, in corporate environments and online.
Some people have come to my teaching over inflexibility or those who were recommended by a doctor. I have taught professional footballers and a figure skater and runners, physiotherapists, yoga teachers, lawyers, children and elderly populations, office based workers and business owners all of whom stress levels and yoga goals were different. I have people in class with varying restricted, normal and hypermobile ranges of motion.
Previous individual, couple and families in private sessions have included clients with IBS/low mood; arthritis/gout; weight concerns; addiction issues; slipped disc and back pain problems and post-polio syndrome.
You are more than just a physical body
It really doesn’t matter whether you happen to be very inflexible or have a super bendy body. Once you recognise your restrictions and limitations you can work towards or maintain your optimal level of stability. Yoga is much much more than the physical body anyway, more than a system of bones and muscles, levers and hinges. Flexibility of the mind and deciding to take the first step, having a willingness to learn and explore and of course, recognising one’s ability to love and share the love with others is what this beautiful discipline is about.
WE START WHERE YOU ARE
At Fuelled by Yoga, we start with asana but If you are able to make time and space for yourself to have a regular and honest practice deepening your connection to the Self through exploration, you will undoubtedly reap the benefits of this wonderful discipline.
Simply put, you get out of it what you put in.
Yoga is a transformative practice that evolves, unfolds and deepens.
