Hello … I’m Judi…
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 and Ear Candling are offered from my cosy therapy room in Knaresborough or in the comfort of your own home (reflexology and reiki only).
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 enough to learn with including Philip Xerri, Maarten Vermaase, Jayadhara, Swami Vishwamandala, Judith Clint, Ken Thompson, Di Kendall, Swami Vedandananda and many more.
I have been teaching for over three years, 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.
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’.
Trained to Ofqual level 3 with ITEC to advanced level, I offer this therapeutic, nurturing and relaxing massage treatment. Reflexology works on the acupressure points in the feet that map to corresponding points in the body to encourage a healing reaction in the body and restoration of balance. Clients often report an increased sense of wellbeing, reduced tension and stress, improved sleep patterns.
I trained to Master level with Martine Moorby in the Usui tradition of Reiki.
Reiki is an amazing way to balance the energies in the body and the aura. The energy is free to flow reducing, increasing energy, giving the body and spirit chance to heal and energise.
The treatments are administered whilst the client is fully clothes and can be hands on or off as required. It is a deeply relaxing treatment.
Hopi Ear Candling
Another deeply relaxing treatment using unique wax candles. This is an ancient practice, working on the physical and energetic bodies. The candles draw out impurities from the ear canal and sinuses and balance the upper energy centres. Ear candling is said to help with tinnitus, ear wax build up, allergies such as hay fever, catarrh, asthma, meniere’s disease, headaches and migraine. The treatment is followed by a soothing lymphatic face massage.
My aim is to energise the body and calm the mind.
