Around the same time that I became a yoga teacher, my father was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease. I read books and watched Youtube videos on how yoga could be made more accessible for people dealing with conditions, illnesses, or who cannot get up and down from a mat easily.
This led me to me training for 2 years with the ‘The Yoga Root’ institute in Egham UK to become a Yoga Therapist. I now specialise in running Chair Yoga and Yoga Therapy sessions, sharing the wonderful benefits of yoga with all people.
In October 2019, I joined the Women + Health family as the CAM Project Manager. I’m happy to still be a part of the team as a CAM Practitioner, supporting the Women + Health’s ethos to make low cost therapies available to women.
Particular area of interest: I’m especially interested in using yoga to help people dealing with conditions, illnesses, and injuries. I’m experienced in using Yoga to support women’s health for example conditions such as Endometriosis and Polycystic Ovary Syndrome, as well as chronic fatigue, back pain and stress related issues such as anxiety and depression. I have extensive experience using yoga to help people with Parkinson’s Disease.
I am training as a Yoga Therapist with ‘The Yoga Root’ institute in Egham UK, and will fully qualify early 2021.
