After 25 years looking after four children and husband I was made redundant as a wife (!) so the last few years have been challenging but also really interesting. Originally a teacher of children with Special Needs I returned to education as a (very) mature student and completed a degree at UCL. Decided a return to teaching was not for me so went on to start training as a counsellor. Covid has scotched plans for next step in my training for the time-being so looking at other opportunities. My fundraising plans also derailed by Covid - hoping to regroup and start again with renewed vigour post lockdown! The thing I am most proud of, apart from my four children, is my involvement from the beginning in a charity that has built a school for orphans in Ethiopia. I am passionate about the importance of education, particularly for girls in disadvantaged communities, and this project has given me so much joy and pleasure as well as heartache.
I have recently taken voluntary redundancy form the creative agency I was working at. Although circumstances are very difficult at the moment it has given me the opportunity to step back and reassess what it is I value and find important in life. I am fundraising through personal networks and hope to do some sporting challenges when we are able to.
I'm a yoga teacher and functional mobility specialist running my own business working with private clients, groups, charities and businesses. My approach is grounded in science and principles of physical therapy, neurodevelopmental patterns and functional movement built on a strong understanding of biomechanics and anatomy. I am passionate about helping people move, feel and live better through safer, smarter and more conscious movement practices. Combining this with breathwork and mindfulness I help students find a corner of calm to step away from everyday noise and tap in to a toolkit for resilience.
