Hello … I’m Judi…
I offer Yoga classes, meditation sessions, workshops, retreats and therapies in Knaresborough, North Yorkshire.
My Yoga classes are suitable for most levels of ability from the beginner to those that have been practising for a number of years.
Reflexology, Reiki, Reiki Drumming, Crystal Healing & Chakra Balancing and Hopi Ear Candling are offered from my cosy therapy room in Knaresborough or in the comfort of your own home (reflexology, reiki and crystal healing only available on a mobile basis).
My teaching style is Hatha, meaning Sun and Moon, balance. I focus on strengthening the body, stress relieving techniques, pranayama (breath work), meditation and mindfulness; looking after ourselves, making time to simply be.
I have practiced Yoga since 1995 and have experienced many different styles including Hatha, Ashtanga, Iyengar, Dru, Hot Yoga & Sun Power. My teaching is informed by many of the wonderful teachers I have been fortunate to study with and also my own experience and how Yoga has enriched my life.
I have been teaching since 2014, having studied the BWYQ teaching diploma (Ofqual level 4) with Jayadhara. Becoming a teacher has been one of the best things I have ever done. I was inspired to teach following completing the Foundation course, again with Jayadhara, some years ago. To find out more about Jayadhara click here.
I have studied with many wonderful, inspirational Yogis. Pranayama with Philip Xerri, Tibetan Healing Massage and Meditation in the Buddhist tradition (ongoing) with Maarten Vermaase, Yoga Nidra with Swami Vedandananda, Yin Yoga with Norman Blair, plus many others.

Yoga is an ancient system designed to bring great health benefits, physically, mentally and spiritually.
In my classes this is done through posture practice (asana), breathing practices (pranayama), relaxation, mindfulness techniques and meditation.
These practices benefit the body through stretching and strengthening; there will be space for you to be yourself and have that all important ‘time out’.
Energise the body and calm the mind.
