Yoga isn’t just for young, slim, athletic people

Imagine learning yoga from an encouraging woman in her fifties who is not super flexible, athletic, or obsessed with creative handstands! A woman who is proud to be in an aging body and appreciates the challenges of embracing yoga later in life. Someone who cares and will help you with both the practical, mindset, and emotional aspects of developing a transformational yoga practice. 

Yoga is for every body–no matter what your size or shape 

One of the things I’ve been relieved to discover is that yoga is not about getting your body into a particular shape–there are ways we can all benefit from yoga no matter what shape, size, age, flexibility, fitness, or other medical limitations we’re working with. Phew!!!
Yet how many yoga teachers have you experienced who make classes feel accessible and inclusive for those of us who are not young, bendy, and full of beans every day?
That’s why I teach slow mindful accessible yoga to women over forty who want to learn how to practice yoga in a way that honours their body.

Transform your health and life with yoga

Adding yoga to my daily self-care practice has really helped me overcome fatigue, increase my fitness, and re-align my life to what brings me joy. Everyday yoga helps me tune into what my body needs and what’s important-personally and for my business. It’s as though yoga has connected me to a new source of energy and flow. 

Imagine what yoga could do for you…

Yoga classes, courses, and retreats

If any of what I’ve shared appeals, even if you’ve never done yoga before, or you’ve tried it but it didn’t enjoy it at the time, I’d love you to join me at one of my classes or retreats. I also work with clients on a one-to-one basis. Currently thanks to Covid, I am only able to deliver my classes and services online.

The Journey of an Unlikely Yogi

Having been a well-being coach, author, and business mentor for over fifteen years, becoming a yoga teacher in my fifties felt like a natural progression.

I’ve dabbled with yoga since my twenties. I loved how it helped me feel more relaxed, calm, and at peace. But I didn’t fully embrace it as I used to think yoga was all about getting into the right shape–which my short inflexible and more rounded body wasn’t keen to do.

I didn’t realise that yoga postures are only one component of yoga–that the intention of a posture is more important than the shape, and there are many styles of yoga to suit everybody.

Thankfully something kept drawing me back.

I was becoming increasingly curious about how yoga could help me age well. Especially during my forties when I suddenly found myself battling to overcome burnout, fatigue, and the alien force of menopause that had taken over my body. I was used to being an active high achiever but my body was craving a more compassionate lifestyle.

During this time, yoga helped me take control of my health, heal, and feel better. I no longer do the cardio styles of yoga I’d enjoyed when I was younger. Instead, I now prefer slower-paced styles including Hatha, Yin, Slow Mindful Yoga, Restorative, Menopause Yoga, and Yoga Nidra. 

The more I practice, the better and stronger I feel.

I became completely hooked after experiencing one-to-one yoga sessions every day for a week while on a retreat in Bali. Thanks to my regular yoga practice, I now feel fitter, healthier, and more radiant as I age.

When yoga captures your heart, it’s a transformational experience and a never-ending story.

It’s wonderful to be enabling other women over forty to experience the benefits of yoga too–no matter what your shape, ability, or size.
