My interest in natural therapies comes from having battled chronic fatigue for many years, where various complementary therapies have helped me take charge of my health and wellbeing. This experienceand my belief in treating the person as a whole - and as an individual - has led me to practising the wonderful therapy of Reflexology. I am also passionate about real beauty therapy and using products that are genuinely good for the skin as well as the environment.
My work, particularly that with terminal patients, led me to believe there must be something more I could offer. So began my exploration of spirituality and complementary therapies. My growingawareness of the subtle energies of the body led me to study spiritual healing in 1994 with the National Federation of Spiritual Healers (NFSH). I gained valuable experience working, for almost 2 years, as a healer at the Central London Healing Centre. I am a qualified healer (MNFSH).

On a whim I tagged along with a friend to my first yoga class while studying at the University of Edinburgh in the 1970s. The immediately positive effects on my mind and body inspired me to keep goingand I've never looked back - yoga practice is central to my daily life. After university, I returned home to Kenya (where I had grown up), but had to continue my yoga practice without guidance since there were no Iyengar teachers there.
