As an experienced and knowledgeable yoga teacher, yoga and sound therapist, Reiki Practitioner, EFT Coach I have plenty of different techniques to offer you.
If you are going through an illness or in the recovery process, then I can connect and relate with you because of my own personal medical circumstances. I was diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease in 1993 and have had an ileostomy since 2005. Thankfully, I now live a very full-filling life. All our stories are different but I feel there is a deeper level of understand when you have gone through something yourself.
Through modifying my own yoga practice I was able to calm myself, move through the stressful times and deal with the challenges of having an ostomy bag. Breathing techniques and visualizations were most beneficial, followed by gentle and restorative yoga. It all took time and patience to discover what felt appropriate and safe along my journey to full health.
I know the pain, discomfort, anxiety, stress and body image issues that illness creates. These affect us on many different levels – physically, emotionally and mentally. There are many tools available to help us grow, evolve and heal. I hope to be able to share these with you and ultimately inspire and empower YOU.
