Introducing ...

28 day

Stretch Academy

Our newest course is launching on 1st September! 

Whether you’re new to yoga or have been practicing for a while, this course will help you discover your body's true potential, unlocking a deeper range of motion in backbends, hips openers and a whole range of yoga postures

Get ready to unlock your true flexibility!

Honestly, where are you in your practice right now? Are you able to move through yoga postures with ease or are there areas of your body that just feel 'stuck' or 'blocked'? Do you dream of unfurling into backbends or melting into deep forward folds with effortless ease or do you simply want to wake up in the mornings without that nagging stiffness

Do you find yourself ...

  • Struggling through hip openers and/or backbends?

  • Relying on multiple blocks and straps to help you reach forward folds?

  • Feeling awkward during transitions from posture to posture?

  • Experiencing back pain that can be aggravated by yoga practice? 

  • Avoiding yin yoga classes because they just downright hurt?

  • Wanting to get flexible to find ease not just in yoga but in life?

  • Lacking the knowledge or skills to be able to build real flexibility?

You're not alone ...

 
Over and over again I hear the same issues from yogis all over the world which has lead me to develop this programme. 
 

Imagine if you could ...

  • Gain better mobility to flow through your practice with grace and ease

  • Learn just how to progressively increase your flexibility in a safe and sustainable way

  • Feel inspired in your practice and excited to get on your mat

  • Fall in love with your body and your yoga practice

Why is this important?

Mobility and ease of movement is the foundation physical health. The ability to bend, stretch, twist, pull and push with freedom will transform not only your yoga practice, but your life. Whether you're a yogi, an athlete, a self confessed 'plank of wood', or someone who just wants to move through their day pain free, whatever your flexibility goals, I've got you. 
Give me just 28 days and I'll show you exactly how to tap into your body's true potential for flexibility.
"But I'm not flexible enough to do yoga"
Can you see me rolling my eyes? As a yoga teacher, this is one of the most common excuses I hear. My response ... "that's why you need yoga in your life!". 
​Let me get this out of the way now .... the human body is DESIGNED to move! To run, balance, lift and stretch without pain and limitation. 'Stiff' DOES NOT have to be your 'normal'. Everyone deserves to live in a mobile, healthy body, whether you're a yoga practitioner or not but ... you need to do the work to get there.​
 
My pursuit of a healthy, mobile body has lead me to train with experts all over the world ... yogis, physios, osteopaths and alternative therapists. I've studied (and taught) sports science at college level, trained in multiple yoga styles and I'm now delighted to share all my knowledge in this course.

A little back story ...

From the age of four I trained in dance, starting off in my local Saturday school and eventually progressing enough go to a performing arts college at 16. I was always way 'tighter' than the other students, despite the hours of stretching, but it wasn't until I started my degree in Dance at 18 that I started developing knee, shoulder and back issues.
 
I clearly remember my first class at Laban, freshly moved to London and not being able to touch my toes in forward fold. Splits? nope. Backbends? ouch. Due to years of haphazard 'stretching', and over training, I felt like a tight elastic band and had muscular imbalances in my back and shoulders to show for it.
What made the difference ...
Looking back now I'm glad for that nagging back pain as, at 28, after a long career as a performer and dance teacher, I discovered yoga and my love affair with the practice began! I'm now 10 years into my journey and I'll be honest, my progress in terms of flexibility was very slow for a while. The turning point came when I started to become REALLY interested in anatomy after training in Thai Yoga Massage. During that month in Thailand I saw HUGE gains in my flexibility. Why? I was doing less 'yoga asana' and exploring more varied training. I began incorporating yin yoga and active stretching techniques into my practice, I learned about PNF stretching and myofascial release, I got my first splits, my backbends improved and ... here's the real kicker ... I can now get out of bed every morning and can fold forward with my hands flat on the ground with ZERO back pain. And THAT ... my friends ... is more valuable than any fancy yoga posture!
And now? ...
As I write this at 38 years of age, well over 10 years into my practice my body feels the healthiest it has ever been. The biggest gains in my flexibility came well into my 30s. I'm still no contortionist, and my journey is a continual work in progress but I am in love with the way my body allows me to move both on and off the mat. This is something that will stand me in good stead for the best of my life ... after all ... some of the greatest yogis practiced well into their 90s ;) Now how inspirational is that?!

Got Questions?

All classes are pre-recorded so you can practice in your own time.  You'll get a downloadable course calendar so you'll know exactly what to practice when. Once a week we have an optional live webinar on Zoom where you'll learn more about technique and posture breakdowns, and be able to share your progress and ask questions
Q: What equipment will I need?
Ideally a yoga mat, two yoga blocks, and a yoga strap. For those who want to practice the bonus video a foam roller is recommend but not essential.
If you'd like yo order any equipment feel free to check out my Amazon recommendations here - Amazon Store
 
 
Q: What if I don't have the equipment
No worries! I often travel without equipment when I'm teaching abroad ... thick books are fine instead of yoga blocks and a long scarf or belt will do for a yoga strap
Q: Is this programme suitable for beginners?
This is an all levels course with plenty of options all the way through. If you have any pre-existing injuries that you're concerned about, please drop me an email to discuss - email
Q: How much time do I need to commit?
You’ll practice for 30-45 minutes a day, 6 times a week for 28 days. You can practice at any time of the day as the classes are pre-recorded. There will be an optional Live Sunday check-in via Zoom each week with technique tutorials and an opportunity for you to ask questions.
