I started practicing yoga almost 20 years ago to help manage a chronic lower back injury. Since then I've discovered yoga to be beneficial not only for my back but in so many other areas of life, especially for stress and anxiety and improving overall health. The benefits I've felt from yoga inspired me to train as a yoga teacher so I can share these benefits with others. I especially enjoy helping others with back or joint problems to improve their range of motion again.
I have set up Marsh Yoga to provide accessible and enjoyable yoga for everybody in the local community. Yoga is proven to contribute towards improved health and vitality through connecting mind, body and breath.
The yoga I teach is a gentle mix of yin (typically seated or lying long held postures focused on freeing joints and connective tissues to improve mobility and provide a focus for mindful breathing) and yang (typically standing or seated postures focused on movement with the breath), combined with mindful breathing (pranayama) techniques and some Qi Gong practices. I have a special interest and passion in teaching yoga for back care and run a Yoga for Back Care lesson each week.
Come along and practice in a kind, compassionate and supportive environment.
I have trained with a number of internationally renowned teachers, completing my 200 hours RYT with Simon Low, advanced Yin Yoga training with Norman Blair, Yoga for All training with Dianne Bondy, specialised yoga for back and pelvic pain with Donna Farhi as well as training with back physiotherapist Sarah Key. I regularly practice yin yoga with Norman Blair as well as Qi Gong with Mimi Kuo Deemer.
Marsh Yoga was originally named after teaching in the beautiful Romney Marsh coast and countryside where I used to live in Kent, but continues now following my relocation to Borough Marsh Island, near Charvil, Berkshire.
