As a back sufferer, I know how pain can be debilitating and how it affects the mood, stress, and health in general. My scoliosis can give me not just back pain, also pain in other parts of the body, like knees, ankles, hips, it also affects my breath, eyesight, and digestion, my mood. Having a healthy spine is much more than just a straight back, it has a far-reaching effect on the whole body and mind. This is the reason why I am offering specialised Yoga.

  • stabilising the sacroiliac joints

  • managing chronic pain, fatigue including conditions such as fibromyalgia
