Namaste and welcome to yogamel! 

(This is how I am referred to mostly, so, it seemed the most appropriate name for my site).

 

A little about me…

I started teaching yoga in 2001 after completing a Yoga Teachers diploma with The Kevala Centre, International School of Yoga, in Devon. 

More recently, in 2015, I qualified as a Yoga Sports Coach with the Institute of Yoga Sports Science. 

I retired as a massage therapist this year (2019) after 22 years to concentrate solely on yoga.

My style of teaching uses the traditional and ancient principles of yoga fused with a modern flare to create strength and fluidity in a friendly and fun atmosphere.  

(I love an alliteration as much as I love yoga!)

My classes incorporate the quantitative science behind sport alongside the age-old taught methods of yoga to achieve structural alignment and fitness, stability, balance, increased breathing capacity and range of movement. 

In class you will learn the tools to aid relaxation and mindfulness as we explore our ability to calm and control the mind rather than our minds controlling us.  Yoga gives us permission to ‘let go’ of tension and stress for a lighter life if we allow it.

Having a keen interest in the body and how it works has kept me enthused down this path of constant learning.  I approach healing and fitness holistically and biomechanically to maintain wellness inside and out, physically and mentally.

Yoga is a science and a way of life that develops our awareness of self and once delved into gives us access to create better health of mind and body. 

Classes range from chair based to beginner through to advanced level and athlete centred, so, all are welcome and all abilities accommodated for.

Please feel free to contact me for more information. I’m always happy to chat ‘yoga’ and answer any questions you may have.
