My method is based on the clients current health and well being. I conduct a full assessment to establish the needs of each person and build a detailed and tailored program to fit their needs, whether they are just starting out on their journey with yoga, or they are more advanced practitioners that are looking to perfect certain skills or postures.
I have been practising Yoga for over 5 years and have recently qualified as a 200hr Registered Yoga Teacher specialising in Healthcare. I undertook my training in India and specialised in conditions including Diabetes, Hypertension, Stress, Depression, Anxiety, Arthritis as well as Pregnancy.
Rates do not vary based on students needs. I am currently offering full consultations, assessments and specialist practices such as Prenatal yoga and disease specific yoga programs at the same rate as a standard one-on-one lesson.
I am a prolific, dedicated and meticulously organised individual who relishes a challenge. I have recently returned from India where I have undertaken my 200hr Yoga for Healthcare Teacher Training, and I am currently looking for opportunities to teach yoga and continue to grow my knowledge. I have a strong and varied skill set from my previous work experience, including freelance Event Management, Project Management, Business Development and Pub Management. In my personal life, I am very interested in health and wellbeing as well as the creative arts. I love to cook and bake as well as being a fan of music, especially live music, and art.
