My introduction to Yoga was through a personal injury…..
In 2006 I was suffering from a very painful neck hernia with trapped neck nerves making it impossible to move my right arm. The obvious treatment was pain killers. Not wanting to take drugs I decided to use visualisation and self massage as a cure. This brought me in contact with Raja Yoga.
At this time I was introduced to Nalanie Chellaram, a disciple of Sri Swami Satchidananda who is the official translator of The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. She is the founder of the Integral Yoga Centre in Gibraltar and Sotogrande, Spain. Nalanie helped me to understand, learn and change my view of life, the body, the mind, breath and spirit. A way of life. This prepared myself for a healthy way of living but also made me realise I had something to offer to others and to serve.
I trained as an Integral Holistic massage therapist in The Netherlands at the HOLOS ACADEMY learning about anatomy and working with the body and mind, specialising in finding vulnerable areas where stress and toxins live, ultimately finding out what we can do to rid ourselves of these problems without medication. I have studied foot reflexology, teach baby massage (Shantala) and give chair massages using the David Palmer system. I am also a Reiki Practitioner with a first and second degree. Anatomy & Physics, Nutrician diet and Prenatal & Postnatal Yoga are also a part of my teachings.
I have dedicated my life to serve, helping people to become pain and stress free. A healthy body, a peaceful mind and a contented life.
