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. Yoga offered so much more than just a physical practice to ease my pain. Each moment I stepped onto my mat was a chance for me to heal my body not only physically but mentally, emotionally and spiritually.

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 trainings. Recent studies have been with the Hanuman Academy in the Five Great Elements, Mythic Yoga Flow with Sianna Sherman, Energetic Alignment & Living the 8 Limbs with Janet Stone, and currently diving deep into Astrology with Soul Star Medicine to bring forth the language of the stars.

I love to weave my practice with the elements and ancient mythology as well as allowing it to flow with the rhythm of our seasons, the planets and the cycles of the moon. When we mirror the qualities and energy in season and within our solar system we feel more balanced and energised in ourselves. Aligning with nature around and connecting to this cosmic 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 with our planet so that you can live a more healthy, vibrant and fulfilled life.
