ONE TO ONE SESSIONS, MINDFULNESS and YOGA
One to one lessons offer you the opportunity to learn yoga and mindfulness at your own pace, to meet your specific needs. Whether you have physical health issues, anxiety, depression, are living with cancer, trauma, chronic pain or any other health vulnerability, I will tailor each hour to meet your needs each time you come to a session.
In January 2017 I followed my heart and took a break from teaching big groups to free up time to focus on one to one teaching.
I have a purpose build studio in my garden in Cley set in my ‘secret’ walled garden, and with fantastic views of the sea. The atmosphere of seclusion and serenity lends itself to this work.
In offering you the time and space to explore specifically what meets your needs I hope to help you gain all the benefits of mindfulness meditation, mindful movement and/or yoga.
Each session is co-created by you and me to meet your needs at this very moment: whatever is bubbling up for you can be shared and we can approach it using mindfulness and or yoga to understand more deeply and allow you to move towards or deepen the health and well-being you seek.
Whether you are new to this sort of work or have been exploring these modalities all your life, we will together arrive at where you are right now and answer your needs.

Whatever your motivation for doing yoga or mindfulness, ultimately they are both practices where you will develop a closer relationship to you self: you mind, body and your emotions.
At times for all of us special circumstances arise – an injury, an especially challenging phase of life, a special interest in some specific aspect of the practice. One to one sessions offer an opportunity to explore these specific issues at your own speed, in privacy, with my support.
Drawing on my life long meditation practice and more than 15 years as a yoga teacher I will listen to what you bring and tailor the session to meet your needs.
In yoga you may want to learn how to work in a specific pose, or develop a home practice routine, learn which poses you can adapt to work around a vulnerable area of your body. You may wish to take this information back to your lessons so you can wisely and safely work with your body. It is really fine if you attend weekly classes with a different teacher.
In meditation we all get stuck sometimes – a doubting mind, or a repeating experience can wrong foot us and start to undermine our confidence and may ultimately reduce our discipline to practice.
It may be that you are struggling to get your practice into a routine and need support and encouragement.
You may have had an unusual experience which has interested or scared you.
Or maybe you would just like to treat your self to some time to relax and be cared for in a wonderfully peaceful and tranquil environment.
Whatever your motivation for coming, I promise to create an hour which will meet your needs. I very much look forward to working with you.
One to one sessions last for 1 hour and give you the opportunity to go deeper into your own practice of meditation, yoga or both. They are helded in the beautiful and tranquil environment of my purpose build studio in my garden, which has underfloor heating and a wonderful view.
