Besides Yoga, I also enjoy weight training, exercise classes, walking my dogs and swimming.
One of my greatest pleasures is cooking and I have run my own vegetarian café and wholefood shop. I am interested in many things and I am always working on learning, developing and sharing knowledge and information with others. Having been self-employed for a number of years, I have had regular weekly and monthly clients with whom I have worked for many years.
My volunteering work has involved doing massage on a day ward at a local hospice and running free yoga classes for survivors of domestic abuse after securing funding for room hire and yoga mats. The local Alcohol Advice Services allowed me to offer my voluntary services delivering yoga to their clients within their centre as well as at their outreach base.
My client base is varied, from all age groups and all abilities. Sometimes I work with whole families including young people, doing both yoga and massage. I have also worked and liased with social care teams, facilitating yoga and meditation at adopters day events.
