“I knew who I was this morning, but I’ve changed a few times since then.”
Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland
I know well the transformational qualities of Yoga. My journey began after years suffering with a chronic back condition whilst working in the city as a senior IT analyst for a major law firm. I spent many years seeing specialists of all kinds including several Harley St consultants who told me that all I could do was manage the pain using pain killers and cortisol injections in the soft tissue around my spine. I decided that that was something I was not prepared to do and so sought further help.
I found Yoga and with some good massage, remedial gym exercises, swimming and chi gong within a short period of time I had completely changed my body. I quickly stopped using pain killers and all other forms of allopathic medicine and was soon pain free and healthy.
I began training as a Yoga teacher and also undertook various trainings in massage therapy and psychotherapy, initially as part of my personal development but soon realised I could really help people and have been working full time as a Yoga teacher and massage therapist since 2004.
I am a member of The Association for Soft Tissue Therapists, The Acupuncture Society, and The International Association of Yoga Therapists.
