Hello and Namaste.
I am a qualified Yoga teacher and Holistic Therapist, working both from home and I also travel to client's homes across the Wigan Borough to deliver treatments and 1:1 bespoke Yoga sessions. I will travel to some places out of this area *. I have taught a Beginner's Yoga class in Wrightington since 2017.
Prior to this I predominantly worked in post 16 education for 27 years teaching and supporting learners with additional needs. I have worked in schools for the past 3 years with children with Special Educational Needs / Disabilities. I also work in Care meeting the needs of adults who live at home.
I have 4 rabbits and a cat called Gertie. I love being in the garden and welcome times in the year when I can go camping and walking in open spaces. I practise Yoga and now Pilates everyday as well as meditation.
I began learning about Reiki in 2004, initially following the Usui Reiki system of healing for my 1st and 2nd degree. Taking a slightly different approach to Reiki in 2006, I learned about the Tera-Mai and Seichem healing system, starting back at 1st degree and then 2nd, achieving Masters level in 2007. At this time I used Reiki with friends, family and my animals as a means of natural and Universal healing. During this time I also trained to offer Thermal Auricular Therapy in 2005, which is based on traditional Hopi Ear Cleansing.
I began attending a Yoga class in 2014 in the hope it would reduce acute and chronic back pain which I frequently experienced from a car accident and work injury. I often had sciatic pain, no feeling in my feet and extreme nausea from the pain. I found over time going to Yoga and practising at home helped enormously. I found this and Reiki also had significant benefits to managing an additional long term mental health condition. I embarked on Yoga Teacher Training in 2016, through Yoga Alliance. I wanted others who may shy away from Yoga because of ill health, age, size and ability to also realise the benefits if they chose to do so. I trained to deliver Meditation tuition in 2015, and largely factor this within Yoga classes.
