6 Seton Road, Longniddry EH32 0LD, UK
Coming from a mental health background I became interested in the body and mind. I wanted to be able to make a contribution to the health of others. After my Mental Health Qualification, and working in the NHS / Voluntary Sector, my next aims were to gain qualifications in alternative therapies. I then studied to become a Reflexologist and Indian Head masseuse.
To continue with my personal development of health and well-being, I registered for a Yoga Teacher training course in 2011. My love for yoga came from my own practice over many years, and this inspired me to become a yoga instructor so I could share the many gifts and benefits of yoga with others. I ran some smaller classes as a student Yoga Teacher in 2012, and since then have been running classes since I qualified in 2013.
I have completed further training so I can offer yoga to almost any age group and completed my Kids and Teens Yoga in 2014.
In 2015 I completed a Dru back care course run by a Senior Physiotherapist and Gp who are also qualified in Dru Yoga. The course consisted of:
> Anatomy, physiology and pathology of back conditions.
> Evidence base for therapeutic yoga and other approaches for managing back pain.
> Introduction to the therapeutic use of the kosha and chakra models in back care yoga classes.
> Experience of asanas tailored to the therapeutic relief of back pain.
> Specific techniques for deep relaxation of the spine.
In 2017 I completed level 1 Teach children Meditation. The course consisted of :
> Understand how stress affects the mind, body and emotions
> Learn how meditation can be a powerful antidote to stress and anxiety for all ages.
> Learn how to create meditation scripts for any age/ability of child/teen
> Develop your confidence in delivering meditations to children
> Understand the differences between meditation and mindfulness
> Learn to tune in to your child’s needs so you can deliver the most healing meditations for children/teens
> Learn how to set up a meditation space suitable for children (from toddlers + to teens)
> Understand the differences in teaching children meditation of different ages
In 2017 I completed my Swedish Massage Training
This has increased my skill base as an alternative therapist and also allows me to offer full or part body massage.
