My Story

IMG_20160129_120441

Hi, my name is Emma. I am a qualified yoga teacher, energy healer and life coach and I am also a busy working mum to two incredible teenagers. My daughter is now 18 and off studying music at University and my son is 14 and working towards his GCSEs at secondary school.

I have been self-employed for over 20 years now  beginning my working life as a freelance translator and proofreader and then life took me on a different path  when I felt the calling to teach yoga.

I was introduced to yoga in my mid-teens but started practising more consistently in my twenties. After attending an inspirational yoga retreat in 2012 when my children were young I realised that I had been so busy raising my children and balancing that with work that I hadn’t stopped to focus on my own physical or mental well-being. This retreat showed me that yoga was a way to find peace inside despite the chaos of everyday life. I went on to complete a foundation course in yoga studies after which I undertook a 200-hour yoga teacher training. My yoga teaching story then began and I continued to study extensively obtaining many subsequent teaching qualifications over the years.

The highlight of my yoga journey thus far has definitely been having had the incredible opportunity to stay at a Sivananda Ashram in Kerala, South India a few years back. Every day was devoted to meditation, chanting, yoga practice and study in an authentic environment and it was truly a life-enhancing experience.

In addition to teaching yoga I am a qualified Usui Reiki Master-Teacher and I have also completed training in Angelic Reiki and Emotional Freedom Technique. I have also explored the power of sound as a mechanism for healing and deep relaxation and have trained as a Gong Practitioner and have undertaken training in Reiki Drum Technique as well as an exploration of singing bowls.

This past year I have completed a Diploma in Life Coaching and in Mindset Coaching. This has been a natural progression for me in terms of my own personal journey exploring wellbeing and wellness but also as part of my desire to help people to feel better about themselves, to feel happier in life and to feel more in balance mind, body and spirit.

Om Shanti.
