About Solihull Yoga Therapist
During my 20 years within the NHS I witnessed the amazing effects of life saving drugs and surgery, I also witnessed a growing population becoming more dependant on pharmaceuticals. Many patients had been prescribed drugs without the opportunity to talk to their GP in depth to analyse lifestyle habits that could be changed to improve their health or illness.
This led me to study the Science behind Yoga and a healthy lifestyle to improve many health conditions, for example, did you know that Type 2 diabetes can be reversed by an extremely low-calorie diet alone rather than regular medication? Over the years I witnessed another growing problem of poor mental health, I saw this first hand working as part of a Mental Health team within the NHS. I soon learned that although medication is an option, patients can create a firm foundation towards recovery through addressing the four core basics for health, "movement mindfulness, diet and sleep".
Through my Yoga teaching I saw how this ancient practice can soothe the pressures of todays life and empower individuals towards a more meaningful and balanced life. My Yoga qualifications include Yoga Therapy, Irest Yoga Nidra, Children's Yoga and Yin Yoga, I am also a qualified CBT practitioner able to give advice on skills to how to avoid anxiety and stress. I help others by teaching movement and mindfulness drawing from the knowledge from my medical degree, my experience working as a Paramedic and my Yoga teachings.
