Why is it called Cherry Tree Yoga?

It’s seemingly a naff name but read on!

The story starts in my younger years. Sadly, when I was 25 I had a very difficult childbirth for my identical twin girls, all three of us almost died during the delivery. Both twins survived initially but one little girl, Ella, died 5 and a half months later. 

I loved climbing, swimming, trail running, cross country, mountaineering and trekking and used these to keep happy and healthy but I found that something was missing. Then I found yoga and something came alive.   My interest in meditation grew from this, my love of sport is still there too.

Fast forward, I  was very fortunate to receive some inheritance money a few years ago. At the time, I was working as a nurse, I loved nursing but I was feeling burned out & unsupported. So, I used the inheritance to build a small studio, I named it Cherry Tree Yoga Studio because Ella’s ashes are scattered in a Cherry Tree. I thought that this was a fitting tribute to her short but impactful life. 

I have trained with some amazing teachers from all over the world. I have completed  a 500 hr advanced teacher training certificate. In addition I have completed; meditation teacher training, pregnancy yoga teacher training, Yin Yoga teacher training. I also bring my massage therapist knowledge, a deep understanding of anatomy and biology, knowledge of various sports and personal training, plus many of my nursing skills and life experience into my teachings. I suspect that it is this fusion that makes my classes feel a little different, or so I am told.  

It sounds like a cliché but I am so  grateful that I am able to bring my passion for yoga and meditation to others. Come and join me in the studio, it’s friendly, we laugh quite a lot, often at my expense. You will be made to feel most welcome.

Much Love.
