A little bit about me…I love Energy! My passion in life is working with, teaching and empowering others to take control of their own health, wellness and happiness by working with the energies of the body. I love researching and practicing different healing methods and passing my knowledge on to others so they can get to know their true selves and learn to work with their unique energies. When our energies are strong, balanced and flowing we are Radiant! When we heal and empower ourselves we become a healing force for everybody around us. Good energy is contagious!
These methods have helped me personally many times over the years and I believe can help everyone, regardless of their situation. If we want to be happy, healthy, well balanced and really thrive, we have to start at the level of our subtle energies.
I am a certified yoga teacher in Hatha & Traditional Tantra with Satya Loka and have practiced Kundalini Yoga for 16 years, and taught it for the last 7 years.
I am a full instructor with the Tai Chi Union of Great Britain, teaching Tai Chi, Qigong, Sound Healing & Meditation.
I am an Acupressure Therapist SNHC and an Eden Energy Medicine Certified Practitioner,

EFT and Energy Medicine have helped me personally through many physical and emotional problems and I am constantly fascinated with how powerful and effective these methods are in helping people overcome all sorts of problems, and obtain not just physical health, but emotional and mental well-being.
