Before becoming a yoga teacher, I spent many years working in the corporate sector, wearing a suit and sitting behind a desk every day.
It was the birth of my first child that provided the catalyst for change as I sought to balance caring for my family with the need to work and the necessity of developing my own self-care practices.
Yoga has been the tool that has helped me navigate through early parenthood and beyond with some sense of sanity and ease.
More and more, yoga provides me with “go to” strategies for whatever challenges I face be they big or small.
Since first teaching baby and postnatal yoga over 13 years ago I have seen again and again how very simple Yoga techniques can support and benefit individuals and lead towards positive long-term health and well-being.
For many years my Yoga teaching was focused around helping pregnant women and new mums, but as my children have got bigger and both myself and my peer group have grown older this interest in women’s Yoga has shifted naturally to focus on the perimenopause and menopause and how yoga and the massage therapies I offer can ease this transition in women’s lives.
