About Me

Yoga Shortlands

I practiced yoga for 20 years before I realised I didn't just enjoy it, I needed it.  I can remember saying that I felt scrunched up when I couldn't get to a class.  At the time I meant physically scrunched, but I now realise I also meant mentally scrunched.  Yoga has helped me develop mental and emotional resilience, and has been a key part of my recovery from trauma.  Yoga helps me feel grounded, calm, and more spacious in body and mind.

I have a degree in Psychology and MSc in Health Psychology, and have many years experience in mental health and recovery settings.  I use this education and experience, alongside my yoga therapy training, to plan classes and sessions that support mental health and resilience.
