About me

With over ten years experience as a Yoga Therapist, with membership in the BWY, CNHC and IAYT, I currently run several general and specific Yoga Therapy Classes throughout the Bury area.

I offer classes for the Over 50s, students with Multiple Sclerosis, and cater to the specific needs any student requires, including supportive equipment to make each posture comfortable, relaxing, and accessible to all.

Individual 1-2-1 sessions are also available in your home for a more familiar and relaxing environment, which can be more appropriate when dealing with more specific health conditions for a personalised programme.

A Yoga Therapy Session can benefit health conditions, including strokes, arthritis, joint conditions, Parkinson’s Disease, MS, ME, anxiety, depression, back pain, sciatica, cancer, and more, to supplement medical care.

These sessions cover all aspects of yoga, focusing on postures, breathing, relaxation, and sound and meditation when it is relevant and effective to do so.
