About Me

For years I was a PA for small and large companies but always had a passion for Yoga and other fitness concepts, however I always came back to Yoga.

Several years ago I suffered with sciatica and was referred to a physiotherapist. My condition was treated and Pilates was recommended.  Now I know what exercises to do when the symptoms arise and within a couple of days the pain subsides.

And then I noticed that my posture was misaligned, due to age, sitting down for long periods of time and generally bad habits.  After a visit to a chiropractor because I was suffering with headaches, I discovered I had spondylolisthesis in my lumbar spine and arthritis in my cervical spine.  I asked my chiropractor why I did not suffer any pain and he said that I was doing all the right things, practicing Yoga and Pilates.

I started my training for my own personal reasons however, because the benefits are huge, I decided to start teaching and haven't looked back.  My posture has improved immensely and I am aware that Yoga and Pilates is a lifetime improvement programme, one tried and tested over the years.

I completed my Yoga 200 hour alliance training with FRYOG, their motto is "Friendly yoga with a smile". I particularly enjoyed learning the philosophy and history of yoga and enjoyed reading and studying the spiritual texts, and  have benefitted hugely in my life practising pranayama and meditation.

I also teach Body Balance which is a fitness yoga and includes a Tai Chi warm up, Yoga based Sun Salutations, Standing Strength and Balance exercises, Pilates abdominal and back exercises.  It's a total body workout which increases your strength and flexibility. 

And I incorporate my PureStretch training into all my classes............

For me, life is an ongoing learning experience and one which I embrace.

Yoga and Pilates complement each other and really do improve your life.  

All other fitness now is my hobby!!!!
