About Helen

 

My journey in yoga began in 2006 when I was advised to try yoga to help with my chronic lower back pain, caused by hours of sitting at a computer, slumped over a desk.

From the first session I could feel this deep release inside of me, there was a complete shift of energy and a sense of space that my body had been longing for. With each practice I began stripping back the layers of my being, reconnecting with my soul and learning so much about myself. Each moment I stepped onto my mat was a chance for me to heal my body both physically and emotionally.

The magic of yoga really ignited a spark within me and I didn’t want to keep this to myself. I longed to be able to share this beautiful ancient practice with others and that’s when my teacher training began.

I qualified with The British School of Yoga in 2012 with over 200hrs and I continue to develop my knowledge through workshops and online immersions. I have recently completed a course with the Hanuman Academy, learning from five master teachers: Saul David Raye, Sianna Sherman, Juan Pablo Barahona, Janet Stone & Sree Devi Bringi in the Five Great Elements to bring rich teachings to my students.

I love to weave my practice and classes with the seasons, the elements and the wonderful lunar cycles. When we mirror the qualities and energy in season we feel more balanced and energised in ourselves. Aligning with nature around and connecting to this rhythm we can heal more easily, feel more steady in the mind and content with life.

At Yes To Yoga my aim is to inspire you to find a deeper connection with your body and to live a healthy and vibrant life.
