About me

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 could have possibly 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 and in 2019 I’m hoping to add more of both classes in Haverhill and the surrounding areas.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’ve also worked with serving prisoners on a regular weekly basis which was very successful.

Yoga and Pilates isn’t just an exercise, it is a lifestyle and a journey. It isn’t about being flexible or skinny, it is what you make it.
