Hi i'm Jodie
My Journey so far
I started practicing Yoga in 2014 after moving to Musselburgh. Initially I was drawn to the physical side of Yoga, but as I began to practice regularly other benefits became clear. Yoga didn't just help me with my strength and mobility but it helped me with my anxiety and everyday life.
By 2017 I wanted to go deeper but being a master procrastinator I needed a push to do my teacher training so my husband gave me a shove by booking it for me!
I completed my RYT 200 hour Yoga teacher training with Dhugal Meachem of Tribe Yoga Academy in 2017. Initially I wasn't sure I wanted to teach but after teaching family and friends I built up my confidence and stepped in feet first and haven't looked back.
Yoga is many things to many people, there are many different styles of yoga, different lineages and if you asked 100 people what yoga was and does for them you would likely get 100 different answers. That is the beauty of yoga. Meet yourself on the mat, learn about you and your body and take what you need.
I suffer from PCOS and the extra symptoms that come with it, fatigue, anxiety and phantom aches and pains. Yoga gives me what I need, some days if I have energy I will do a faster paced sweaty class but sometimes its slow gentle movement or no movement at all, maybe doing yin or meditation. I think yoga can be for everyone you just need to find the right class and the right teacher.
I'm constantly continuing to build on my knowledge as there is always something else to learn or deepen your knowledge of, when it comes to Yoga and the complimentary therapies so I regularly attend CPD courses and workshops for myself and my teaching.
Some of the extra learning I have done
RPYT 85 hour pregnancy Yoga course.
Sport Massage Diploma
Level 2 Anatomy for Yoga Course 15Hour CPD
Trauma informed teacher training 50hours
I have also attended courses on Ayurvedic Massage, philosophy and chanting and the art of adjustments with Karen Kirkness of Meadowlark Yoga.
I am currently studying to obtain my RYT500.
