It is fair to say that I struggled to find my place in the world!
At 25 years old I worked in a highly stressed office. And was sick. I found myself with serious digestive problems, piling on weight, horrid skin allergies. Smoking and drinking too much, I had two root canals from all the grinding. A nerve in my neck liked to go into spasm too. I hated my workplace and apparently it hated me!
Then I discovered Kundalini Yoga. My whole world changed.
Down the rabbit hole I fell. Gleefully. With a sense of relief I can’t describe. As my confidence in this work grew, so my life evolved. My body, life, and mental wellness began to heal.
I went to every yoga class, workshop and event I could; reading every article and discovering great websites.
At some point a friend invited me to a Coaching Academy event and the missing piece of the jigsaw clicked.
Having a coach myself helped me to make some monumental life changes. In a few years I had a completely different lifestyle, was healthy and happy. I had created The Happy Hunt yoga and coaching offering and had finally I had found direction and purpose in my life!
I qualified as a Personal Development (or ‘Life’) Coach, with the Coaching Academy, in March 2013. I felt drawn to the empowering nature of the process. Which in a nutshell offers people a confidential, respectful, and supportive communication to explore
The heart of a problem/problems
A chance to voice what they really want free from judgement
The support to find a way to make that happen.
It is an empowering and uplifting process. With plenty of room for fun along the way.
Just like yoga coaching teaches us we already have everything we need. We are encouraged to be the best version of ourselves. For our happiness and wellbeing, and of those around us. Conscious and heart centered living is good for not only us as individual practitioners, but our culture and society, and world even!
I trained with Sally Parkes Yoga, and graduated from her Laxmi 200 hours Hatha & Vinyasa Teacher Training in July 2013.
I embrace all styles of yoga, and love to fusion ancient meditation, breathing, mantra and mudra techniques, with gentle and explorative asana practice. I create guided meditations that blend coaching techniques with yoga principles. My classes always encourage a focus on comfort, safety, and self-reflection. Often I will bring along my gong or singing bowls too.
Yoga helps us identify and release both physical and mental tensions holding us back. It creates ‘space’ in our lives for us to move forward into. But we don’t always know what to do with that space. It can be easy to slip into old habits and replay old stories. Coaching gives the practical support needed to make the most of that space. It’s like a fast track system to help you get what you really want, and deserve.
This combination was so powerful for me. If you are ready to commit to what you want, I know it can work for you too.
Now I feel so blessed to work with lots of people who are ready to create exciting forward motion in their lives. From the heart, with the professional expertise that training and life experience has given (and still gives!) me.
No matter what my life presents me with I feel genuinely energised and extremely grateful to be able to share my work with others. Let me share my tool kit with you!
