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 love of movement and embodiment I also worked in Thai massage in Thailand and trained Capoeria beginning whilst living in Brazil.

I have spent the last 15 + years  deeply inspired by the work of Vanda Scaravelli  with principle teachers Diane Long,  John Stirk , Elisabet Paunz and Liz Warrington.

 

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. 

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.  

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 https://www.birthingyourlife.org
and my years of meditation practice in Vipassana/ Insight meditation  and in Deep Rest Meditation with Gemma Polo and  Jaya Ashmore https://www.jayaashmore.org

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