My name is Coco, In July 2016 after some years of taking yoga classes and after spending two years umming and erring I decided to undertake yoga teacher training in Long Melford, Suffolk with Brenda Louw.
In September 2016 the course began and after 300 hours teacher training I qualified in November 2017. It was quite simply the best thing I have ever done.
I have been teaching since March 2017, teaching has not only boosted my own confidence as a person but has allowed me to go deeper into my own yoga practice, it has brought old friends back into my life and I’ve met some fabulous new friends too!
In March 2018 I trained in Pilates which I teach two weekly Pilates classes one in Hundon, Suffolk & one Birdbrook, Essex. Yoga classes run twice a week in Haverhill, Suffolk. I have a special interest in yoga as a therapy for addiction, depression and anxiety.
I’ve done some work with young people suffering low mood as part of an after school club. I’m currently working with Haverhill Youth Skills as part of their ‘bee happy’ sessions which offer young adults support in day to day life.
I’ve also worked with serving prisoners holding a weekly yoga class which was very successful in improving their mood & overall well-being.
Yoga, Pilates & living holistically is a lifestyle & I believe can be a wonderful part of anyones life journey.
