                      Happy Business Birthday!

It has officially been a year since my little business started (HOORAY!) – so I thought I’d do a wee blog post on my ‘Why’.

If you were to ask me to boil it down to one word, it would be CONNECTION. Baby yoga, toddler yoga, kids and family yoga, my new Women’s Circles – all of it is about the connection.

Before Yoga

I used to work for the police. I worked shifts, in a busy control room. Then I became pregnant. I had a bad pregnancy – I suffered from hyperemesis gravidarum (extremely bad pregnancy sickness) – and was off work for months. Then, after I gave birth to my son, I developed postnatal PTSD, with depression and anxiety. The result of all this ill health was a huge feeling of isolation. There were points when I felt very on my own and unsupported.

Then, I discovered yoga as a way to help heal my body and my mind.

My Next Steps

I left my job with the police. I retrained to be able to teach baby yoga. It started with just that, then my offering grew as I underwent more training. All my classes, all my workshops, everything I do has connection at the heart of it. My journey would have been easier if I’d been supported by a community. I am grateful for all the help I received after realising I COULD ask for help. I hope that by teaching my classes, and getting people to connect, bond and grow together, there will be less chance of others feeling the isolation I did.

Yoga is a fantastic tool to help with personal wellbeing. It makes perfect sense that we teach this to our children from as early a point as possible. I teach you how to use yoga to bond and connect with your child. It is not all super bendy poses and ‘ommm-ing’ – it is fun and exciting. We play games, we make funny faces and noises. I absolutely love seeing parents and children connect in class – and seeing the families interact with other families.

That is my Why.
