R E S T & R E L A X
I was first introduced into practicing bodywork in 1997. Whilst travelling in South East Asia I spend some time in Chiang Mai where I attended a course in Thai massage. During that initial training in Thailand something clicked with me joining up my tactile sense with an interest in the physical body, movement and health.
Prior to that I had over the years enjoyed receiving massage on plenty occasion but never considered it a career option.
I then followed onto spending a year in United States, enrolling into a fulltime program at Utah Collage of Massage Therapy, a very comprehensive program that covers Deep Tissue, Sports Massage, Cranio Sacral Therapy, and Reflexology as well as well as in depth Anatomy and Physiology. I qualified from there at the end of 1998.
Around the same time I took my first ever yoga class and could instantly feel its many benefits. Throughout the training in the States it became clear to me yoga is the greatest companion piece and complement to bodywork for both practitioner and recipient.
Leading me onto partaking in Yoga Campus Yoga Teacher training for the purpose to deepening knowledge and understanding of yoga.
Through the course I met my main teacher Rod Stryker founder of Para Yoga, who’s the main focus in my own practice and development.
