I joined the team at Osteopathy For All in the summer of 2019 after I had previously worked in theatre and event management in London’s West End for many years. I saw first hand how important it is for people to prioritise their wellbeing and mental health in both a corporate setting and within the arts sector due to the level of stress, overwhelm and pressure that is experienced, not to mention the daily grind of living in the city.

I decided to leave London and move back to Sussex once I had finished my Yoga teacher training. I am a Kundalini Yoga Teacher and a Meditation/Mindfulness teacher and I regularly teach Kundalini Yoga and wellbeing classes, workshops and courses online and in person. I have delivered meditation courses for the chemo nurses at Brighton Hospital during the pandemic and the Liverpool Universities tutors ‘Wellbeing Week’ which was a week-long online programme of wellbeing sessions, of which I ran a chair yoga class and a meditation class.

Being the Administration Manager for Osteopathy For All compliments my passion for wellbeing and promoting positive mental health. As well as supporting the smooth running of the practice, I also use the new Wellbeing Space to run bi-weekly wellbeing sessions with the view to offer short courses in meditation for both beginners and those who already have a regular practice.

My top tip for improving wellbeing:

Breathe. When you are feeling stressed or overwhelmed, try to remember to come back to your breath. I often remind my clients that your breath is like an old, wise friend who has been there from the beginning, like an anchor keeping us grounded within ourselves. You can use long deep breathing to bring your mind into the present moment, feel more centered in your body and improve the quality of your thoughts.
