Yoga is extremely beneficial for our Mental and Emotional Well Being.
It helps reduce the stress response on the body and mind, teaches us to be respond to difficult situations in a calmer manner, and teaches us self awareness.
I have much experience in the field of Mental Health, both personally and professionally
For amny years I worked in NHS clinics and education settings, supporting Children and Young people, and their families, to deal with a range of mental health difficulties.
I have also spent much time as a volunteer in Mental Health Hospitals and Centres.
In 2013 I undertook further training in teaching Yoga for Mental Health with the Satyananda School of Yoga, and run workshops and individual sessions.

What is mental wellbeing?
Mental wellbeing describes your mental state – how you are feeling and how well you can cope with day-to-day life. Our mental wellbeing can change, from day to day, month to month or year to year.
If you have good mental wellbeing (or good mental health), you are able to:
feel relatively confident in yourself – you value and accept yourself and judge yourself on realistic and reasonable standards
feel and express a range of emotions
feel engaged with the world around you – you can build and maintain positive relationships with other people and feel you can contribute to the community you live in
live and work productively
cope with the stresses of daily life and manage times of change and uncertainty.
However, we all have times when we have low mental wellbeing – when we feel sad or stressed, or find it difficult to cope. For example, when we suffer some sort of loss; experience loneliness or relationships problems; or are worried about work or money. Sometimes, there is no clear reason why we experience a period of poor mental health.
