my journey

jo kemp photographyI have been teaching yoga and meditation since 2007 mostly to small groups,  one to one , retreats and workshops.

My own yoga and meditation practice for over 20 years.   With a deep curiosity for where I see life,  love of life and that that is inseparable from freedom : of movement and embodiment,  that are beyond the mechanics of the body.

I was lucky to live in Thailand and immerse myself in the learning of  Thai massage there and also trained Capoeria beginning whilst living in the beautiful wild nature of  Brazil.

I have spent the last 15 + years  deeply inspired by the work of Vanda Scaravelli .

At one point,  pioneering yoga & mindfulness projects in schools with the Ofsted/ British Wheel of Yoga in the UK , with a background in primary school teaching.  Passionate about the wisdom of embodiment. 

I offer yoga as a gift to yourself  , a place to come back to heart , a letting go of the mechanics of posture and encouraging a deep listening.  

Where there is permission to stop ‘doing yoga’ and let body wisdom reveal itself to you.

A space of allowing that frees the breath,  awakens the spine , reconnects us to ground.  Finding deeper levels of awareness where the body can open , freedom of movement express itself and our inherent health, vitality and wholeness rekindle itself, towards freedom and whole hearted living .

I am a qualified  biodynamic cranio sacral therapy graduating from  The Karuna Institute, Devon , UK  – Karuna meaning Compassion.   

I’ll also bring my background as a Continuum practitioner working with Cherionna Menzam-Sills
and my years of meditation practice in Vipassana/ Insight meditation  and in Deep Rest Meditation with Gemma Polo and  Jaya Ashmore

These years of meditation and mindfulness practice show up in my teachings  in the value of the gifts of stillness and silence.
