Back in 1991 I discovered I had a passion for health & well-being as I used to spend all of my spare time studying and reading any fitness/wellness articles and books. I became a qualified YMCA Exercise to Music teacher and began to teach a variety of fitness and health classes. I also gained Aerobics & Fitness Association of America certification as well as nutrition, gym instructor, fitness for children qualification & pilates certification.
Fitness became my full time career and I taught over 12 classes a week around Sheffield. I always attended 2 fitness conventions a year with Fitness Professionals and one year I did a yoga class and that was it! Hooked for life. I loved yoga from that moment on and studied for many years to become a British Wheel of Yoga Teacher and hung up my trainers for bare feet and a yoga mat. I added many facets onto my yoga passion and gained a meditation certification.
Yoga has helped me so much in transforming the way I think & feel. Being plus size can be difficult and create low self esteem which leads to tension then feeling stiff & achy but yoga actually make me feel lighter! I feel whole & complete.
I am also a certified Bowen practitioner & have a Reflexology Mastership along with Reiki. I have a therapy room in Dronfield where I help my lovely clients optimize health & wellbeing
I added yet another layer onto my yoga and became a certified Food & Spirit Practitioner & Precision Nutrition Certified ,I offer support in all food, eating & living aspects. I am a certified Barefoot Specialist applying research & achieving results from foot to body.
Teaching yoga & therapy that makes a difference is my life passion, I enjoy helping anyone feel vital & whole.
I attend self development & training days, workshops & weekends to ensure that I can serve my clients & members in the best way possible.
Currently I am training to be a Bowen Tutor for www.bowencollege.org.uk
