Feeling and experiencing the transformative power of yoga in my own life, I’ve been keen to share this beautiful practice with others. Since training as a Hatha yoga teacher, I’ve been working with Macmillan Cancer Support, providing a service to women whose lives have been affected by cancer.
My philosophy comes from observing that many women excel at looking after those around them, often neglecting their own needs. My aim and hope is to help women to care for themselves so that they can reconnect with their own source of vitality. By relearning how to let go, recharge, and to be held and supported, I believe it is possible to cope better with the challenges of life, turning them into opportunities for growth.
When we are fully present, we start to feel again… and ultimately, we are able to listen to our body. Through listening, we reconnect with our inner wisdom. As we develop a relationship with our bodies and come into a state of trust, it becomes easier to discern the signals which are being transmitted to us through our nervous system. As our intuition becomes more pronounced, its voice can guide us on. Living with a sense of ease and in harmony with the world around us, we begin to honour ourselves, finding joy in the journey of life.
Having decided to focus on working for and with women, I have long since known that I would need to expand my knowledge of motherhood. It was when I became pregnant that I was inspired to further my training as a Pregnancy, Post-natal and Mother and Baby yoga teacher. Being pregnant provided me with the opportunity to explore and experience the benefits of having a yoga practice to help with the physical and emotional challenges and to enhance the joy of this special time.
