About Lindsay our Pre Natal Teacher
Yoga for me was a chance but happy discovery 14 years ago. Simply because a yoga class ran the evening I had a babysitter! I’m sure I was the most inflexible person and uncoordinated person there, but I loved the way it made me feel and was instantly hooked. Yoga brought positive change- relaxation, body awareness, reduced stress, so I quickly became drawn to learning more. I dabbled in various styles, took a foundation course, but when I met Jo, an inspirational teacher, I immediately knew I wanted to train with her, and was fortunate to graduate from her second teacher training cohort.
In addition to teaching yoga, as an advanced nurse practitioner working in the NHS, I’m really interested in the positive benefits yoga can have on maintaining wellbeing and improving health, particularly in long term health conditions, and believe yoga can be used therapeutically in tandem with traditional medicine. Especially as many scientific papers are emerging, validating yoga’s positive effects. I’m fortunate that my health background assists my yoga practice with enhanced awareness of health, injury and disease and I love helping people discover it’s benefits for themselves.
As well as general yoga, I undertook an 85 hr pregnancy and post-natal training course with pregnancy teacher trainer Sally Parks. As pregnancy is a time of great change, both physically and psychologically, yoga can help women adjust to this. The class I offer is gentle and nurturing combining gentle asana, breath-work and relaxation and can be adjusted to work with any pregnancy associated issues.
