Experience a deeply healing approach to yoga in a safe space that’s just for you. 

Whether you’re affected by trauma, stress, mental health difficulties or menstrual health problems, I will guide you through a tailored programme of yoga practices to help heal your symptoms and restore your energy. 

You’ll learn to relax at the deepest level. Then, from this state of complete release, you’ll explore how to move beyond the beliefs and behaviour patterns that may be holding you back from healing.

Discover your path to recovery with a personalised course of yoga nidra and restorative yoga. These are research-backed practices, proven to bring relief from PTSD, anxiety, depression and chronic pain.

Find deep and nourishing rest

Your one-to-one sessions will focus on two main types of yoga:

Restorative yoga

In restorative yoga, we use soothing ‘asana’ (postures) in which the body is fully supported by props like yoga bolsters and blankets. Many of the poses are performed lying still.
 
This means that rather than having to make an effort, you can sink into the postures to release tension and achieve deep relaxation.

Yoga nidra

Yoga nidra is a guided meditation practice that’s simple yet often profoundly beneficial. Unlike other meditation, there’s no effort needed – you can’t get it wrong!
 
‘Nidra’ translates as ‘sleep’. When you practice yoga nidra, it puts your body into a state of deep sleep, while your mind stays awake and alert. In this ‘hypnagogic state’ you can begin to explore thoughts and emotions which might previously have felt overwhelming.

    I know these feelings of gratitude and support will come and go over the next few days but I’m enjoying them whilst they are here , it feels quite new or unfamiliar experiencing joyful feelings and I realise it is something that has eluded me recently . So thank you .

    I just want you to know, that your teaching along with my first teacher changed my life. You helped me to find a proactive way to handle my depression. Something no anti depressants have managed to do. You made me see that yoga is so much more than doing different positions, which was my pre misconceptions.

    Restorative yoga made me actually relax, something I hadn’t properly in years.

    Hearing you talk today, I thought that it isn’t just yoga which can have a profound affect on a person, but the actual teacher. And I realised, I needed to tell you that you, have made a huge impact on my life, and my future as I plan to do the 200 hr course in November.

    Please keep on what you are doing, you are a true earth angel.
