I'm an Orkney-based Massage Therapist, Yoga Instructor and Pre and Postnatal Coach on a mission to help others feel great with yoga and exercise - especially soon to be mothers and mummies to be. I am a mum of three fairly large boys that all weighed 10+lb at birth.
I started practising yoga in early 2013, and if I'm honest with you, it was because my other half kept harassing me to go to a class. Little did I know in a few short years I would have the privilege of becoming a teacher, passionately committed to sharing yoga with others who, like me, were sick of feeling discomfort and a little less than vibrant.
Yoga is now ingrained in my daily life in a fundamental way. It helps me meet any challenges I may face by teaching me to be present, focused and receptive.
Then during my first pregnancy, my obsession of the human body amazed me even more. However, I was unaware of the adjustments that I should have made to my exercise regime. I continued to do things like regular planks, over stretched and found I was left injured and with an increased abdominal separation that took time to repair.
This inspired me to become a Pre and Postnatal Coach and create this platform available for all mothers to be and postpartum mummies.
A little more about my background: I have a degree in Sport and Exercise Science, a Masters in Nutrition, trained as a Massage Therapist in the USA, as a Hatha yoga teacher in Thailand and I am trained as a Pre and Postnatal coach. I love the human body and it constantly amazes me what the body is capable of. I became even more in awe of the human body after watching my body change, adapt and recover after each of my pregnancies.
I hope you find value in this training and thank you for stopping by.
