As I was approaching my 46th birthday I became increasingly aware that I had to make some changes to my life before I became a candidate for an early demise! I was working long hours in a demanding job and commuting from Carlisle to Newcastle on a daily basis. My family were neglected and I was exhausted. To make matters worse I am an insulin dependant diabetic and my sugar control was all over the place! I had heard about yoga and knew that it was supposed to be good for getting you fit, but more importantly for calming the mind and so I decided to give it a go. It really helped and as time went by I felt better and better. In April 2013 I went to India and completed 300hrs teacher training with Sonja Appel the founder of Sushumna Yoga in Goa, and I am an accredited Yoga Alliance Teacher. This experience was an amazing one and taught me much about myself and took my yoga practice to another level. I firmly believe that practising yoga has had such a positive effect on my health and well-being and would recommend it to everyone. I have continued to develop my yoga practice with additional training from Karen Kirkness, Bernie Clark and Josh Summers. I live in Brampton with my husband Mike and three Siamese cats. Our son, Andrew is a serving soldier with the British Army. Besides yoga I enjoying walking, needlepoint and cooking. I feel so privileged to have this opportunity to run this beautiful studio. We pride ourselves on being friendly, welcoming and do not take ourselves too seriously. Yoga can change your life and you are never too old to start!
