Our Approach

I started Body Equilibrium in November 2016 because I wanted to help people to move better.

Having previously worked as a teacher and in marketing and content management, I saw first-hand the impact modern living has on our bodies and minds.

I very first discovered yoga when I was at university in Norwich; a friend took me to a class at the local Buddhist centre and I really enjoyed it.  Fast forward a couple of years and I was working as a Head of English at a private school in central London.  I regularly attended a yoga class in Canary Wharf where I was living, in order to help unwind my mind and body from all the commuting.  I decided to do a yoga teacher training qualification just for my own self-development.

I moved back to Northamptonshire a few years later and sadly, my yoga practice became almost non-existent.  It was around this time that I started having lower back problems and seeing a physiotherapist.  Nothing really seemed to be working, so I just assumed that it was going to be 'normal' for me to have backache, even though I was only in my mid twenties!

Over the years, my yoga practice has become an integral part of my life and yes, it has cured my lower back problems!  At a yoga retreat in June 2016, I met a lady who was a sports massage therapist and I had that lightbulb moment where I realised that was what I wanted to do.  On returning home, I immediately signed up to both the Level 3 and Level 4 courses with Premier Training International.

I work with people from all walks of life, from sportspeople wanting to improve their performance, to those suffering from aches and pains from working at a desk everyday.

After discussing your requirements, such as previous injuries, lifestyle, and exercise routines, I provide an individualised treatment plan.  I believe in taking an holistic approach to fitness and wellbeing and have trained in a range of disciplines including sports massage, yoga and yoga therapy, pregnancy massage, and reiki.

I regularly undertake new training to develop my skills and in order to offer even more treatment options.

Having qualified as a yoga teacher in 2005, I have practised yoga for a number of years.  I am also a keen runner and completed the 2018 London Marathon (yes, it was a very hot day!).

I love Star Wars, David Bowie, tea, reading books and the sunshine.
