HOW DID I GET INTO WELLBEING AND WHAT ARE MY CREDENTIALS?
In the last ten years I’ve taught yoga to thousands of people, grown two successful yoga businesses (and sold them) had 3 beautiful children and trained in many aspects of coaching to use alongside my love of yoga and movement. Last year I published my first book – a guide to yoga & meditation and how I overcame burnout and found my purpose. Now I want to help more of you realise your deeper intentions just as I have, powerfully guided by the mastery of coaching, yoga and energy work. Scroll down to read more….. Having trained as a dancer and working briefly in the professional dance industry I was always body concious. I developed disordered eating habits, fluctuating weight and anxiety. These problems saw me leave my professional dance career and return to University seeking ‘a job that made me happy’. I thrived at Uni and living in London accessed excellent cognitive and nutritional therapy which helped with my body image and self esteem issues. The story however didn’t end there. I graduated with a first class design degree and soon had a glamourous high profile job in London. Under pressure working long hours with litte down time I relapsed. I was just a few years into my corporate career and dependent on stimulants to keep going. Caffeine, alcohol, poor eating and weight loss saw my anxiety return with a vengeance. I missed dancing felt like I’d compromised my dreams and didn’t fit the desk job. I needed a longer term solution and I was determined to find it. I quit the work hard play hard lifestyle, returned to therapy and most significantly I began to practice Yoga. By the time I had my first child I was certain returning to high pressured corporate life was not for me. I was coming alive again, passionate and keen to explore my new and healthier lifestyle habits further. I pursued studies in nutrition and mindfulness as well as taking up painting and training to teach yoga with the most amazing yoga mentor and Teacher. I feel fabulous and have never looked back. Through coaching, yoga & art I know how to fuel myself with mindset, health and creativity. I feel strong and flexible in mind as well as body. I practice emotional self-awareness, how to catch signs of pushing down or ignoring valuable feelings and emotions. How to use the tricks and tools of NLP to harness insights and feelings. I recognise ideas and beliefs that are out of date conditioning or holding me back and work with them accordingly. Most importantly I have purpose and interests like yoga and painting that keep me energised.
