My yoga practice was off and on over the years fitting in around a very hectic life, kids, work etc. In 2016, Helen Gillespie of Mudra Yoga came to my restaurant Spoon in Edinburgh and set up a class, it was so popular. I was hooked. I signed up for Helen and Demelza Feltnam’s 200 hour YTT in 2018. During this training I was diagnosed with breast cancer. Yoga helped me navigate through this time. After completing my YTT & cancer treatment I then went on to do a 50hr yin YTT with Demelza and also Yoga for Cancer 50hr YTT with Vicky Fox in triyoga London, Yoga for Breast Care with Bobby Clennel, Chair Yoga with Yuvayoga and also Trauma informed Yoga with Lorraine at ECY. I believe Yoga is a constant teacher and I am a dedicated student.
I know too well the healing benefits a yoga practice can bring to anyone dealing with a cancer diagnosis. This has become my drive and determination to try and reach out to as many people as possible and to guide them through a safe and gentle healing practice.
