I am Yoga Alliance certified, and am qualified in: Teachers 200 YTT; Yoga Nidra; Restorative Yoga; Chair Yoga; Thai Massage, and Reiki (level 1). I studied Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) with Brandi Matheson, and I am currently enrolled at the Buteyko Breathing Clinic in Galway, Ireland in the Certification Programme.
The body benefits from movement, the mind from stillness. Thus, I have integrated nidra meditation, functional breathing, asanas (shapes), and loving kindness in my Zoom yoga guidance practices. No one is excluded; everyone is included! My classes are designed to be accessible for all – they are chair-based with optional standing poses. With a calm mind and a soothed nervous system, you can really integrate into, and enjoy the strength, beauty and resilience, of your body. The addition of functional breathing and meditation into my guidance leads participants to deeper benefits, for our practice, and our lives.
In this age of profound anxiety, taking care of your body with “yummy stretching and compassionate shapes” in our practice is such a beautiful gift to our mental health. Enjoying a calm mind, and firmly rooted in the present moment, we can live at peace in body, mind and heart balance.
