Sammy - Yoga Teacher
Sammy qualified as a yoga teacher in 2018 through the YMCA 200 hour accredited training program here is Sammy’s story…..
Working as a holistic and remedial massage therapist for many years, I often found when treating clients with muscular skeletal injuries or postural complaints that I was using yoga asanas as a solution to improve posture, repair injuries and release tight or painful muscles.
I have been involved in fitness all of my life; firstly as a Ballet dancer and later in weight training but found the impact of this discipline was beginning to cause reoccurring injuries so I began to look for something new.
I have been attending yoga classes for many years and always enjoyed the serenity of this discipline, it was only when speaking with one of my massage clients about how yoga and mindfulness had impacted her life in such a positive way that I became hooked on the idea of becoming a yoga teacher.
After becoming an accredited yoga teacher I began teaching classes in local village halls. Having found The Studios at Ashfields Polo and Carriage Club and then Redricks Lake, we now have a beautiful and serene environment as the perfect backdrop for our classes.
