Helen started practicing Yoga over 13 years ago as a means to help deal with the stress of University, where she studied Sport, Health, Exercise and Nutrition. Yoga made such an impact on her life that she trained with renowned teacher and founder of Sun Power Yoga, Anne-Marie Newland.
Sun Power is a flowing style of yoga, incorporating movement, breath and mindfulness so improving strength and flexibility but also giving you time to slow down and find calm.
In addition to this training she undertook a course with YogaGro to safely teach Yoga to pregnant women, also practicing yoga throughout both of her own pregnancies.
Helen is also trained to teach a style of Yoga known as Yin Yoga. This is a very slow practice, where the stretches are deep and held for long periods of time. It increases flexibility and benefits joint health but most importantly of all it offers us time to slow down and find some stillness in our often hectic lives.
Helen helps out with cover classes at the centre and teaches on the yoga teacher training course with James.
