Working with Karen has helped me to understand the connection between my mind
and my body. Karen’s calm, gentle approach and her sense of humour have helped me to discover for
myself how yoga and massage can improve both my physical and mental wellbeing.
She has helped me focus on the need to look after myself and listen to my body
rather than ignore it.
Karen is a skilled, intuitive therapist who is able to support learning to
experience feeling connected to your whole self. Her mindfulness of both
physical and emotional struggles for clients, her physiological understanding
and her expertise in yoga practices are very powerful means of helping when
people feel “stuck”.

Karen works with people to help them connect with both physical and emotional
pain so they can develop a sense of mastery over what had previously been
difficult. She is skilled in supporting the development of an increased range
of activity and more positive beliefs about your body and self image. Her
gentle style of engagement enables people to work at a pace suited to them.
I highly recommend Karen for anyone who feels in need of a “healing space”.

different things depending on how they feel.
I’m loving yoga, and feel so de-stressed afterwards.
Over the last seven years Julia’s teaching has been a constant inspiration. Her sensitivity to the needs of her
pupils is at the core of her teaching. She is encouraging, never dictatorial,
explaining every new step clearly, so consequently one makes continual
progress. She is a quite exceptional teacher.
This is yoga for body and mind. I began doing yoga with Julia five years ago
when I was depressed. It not only helped me towards better mental health but to
a stronger, more flexible body and sense of balance.
Julia is an inspirational teacher. I have been to her yoga classes for over ten
years. Julia’s work is an invaluable lifeline for me. Her yoga is always insightful and
