My Journey…

My aim is to promote a healthier lifestyle by introducing Yoga and Massage, as aids to reduce stress and tension that can accumulated on a physical level in the body and to encourage a connection to a more relaxed state to help on a mental level on a day to day basis.

I started practicing Yoga in 1999 with my Mum at Pam Trounce’s class in Rumney, as a result of the benefits and effects I experienced, and my life changing direction, I decided to train to become a Yoga Teacher.  I qualified following three years of study with Fay Beddowes through the British Wheel of Yoga in 2004 and have been teaching since.

Over the years my practice, experience and exploration of Yoga has deepened.  I have been inspired my many different teachers and teaching styles.  As a result the classes I teach are an eclectic mix of styles.  Including Somatic Movement, which is my most recent training.  Mainly I am interested in encouraging movement of the body with greater awareness to free it up!

After completing my Yoga Teacher Training, I had the study bug and decided to train further as a massage therapist, in Aromatherapy and Indian Head Massage.  I completed basic Sports Massage training so know the techniques to delve a little deeper into problematic muscles.  I have been receiving the cumulative benefits of massage on a monthly basis for at least 10 years from my friend Jen Davies who also inspired me to train in giving massage treatments.

I have also studied and practiced Reiki levels 1 & 2.

Thank you for visiting my website and get in touch via the Contact page to book a session or obtain further information.

Best wishes, Helen.

What is massage…?

For me massage is a non-verbal way of communicating and it provides important physical contact to convey warmth, reassurance and calmness to the body. It is a sequence of hand movements and pressures over the muscular structure of the body.

What to expect and the benefits of a massage…

Our initial meeting will begin with a full consultation (at no extra cost).

The benefits of receiving a massage include:- loosening of tight muscles and relief from muscular tension.  It stimulates blood circulation bringing fresh blood supply and oxygen to muscles, relieving any aches and pains.  Overall a massage balances, relaxes and provides a sense of well-being.

The massages will be conducted on a comfortable massage couch, or chair for Indian Head, with soothing music and soft lighting.

Massage offers a cumulative relaxing effect and in my experience, it can take up to three sessions to fully appreciate the benefits.

Please note: Some medical conditions contra-indicate massage as it may adversely affect you, on occasion I will request a Doctors approval before commencing a massage.

Treatments available…

The following massage treatments are available from my Home studio in Newport.

Aromatherapy Massage –  A relaxing or stimulating massage, designed to increase blood through to the surface of the skin and the muscles beneath. Using a blend of oils specifically chosen to suit your requirements and how you are on the day.

Please get in touch via the contact page to book.


What is Somatic Movement?

Somatic movement is system of movement that was created by Thomas Hanna.

It incorporates a range of movements designed to address neuro-muscular imbalances in any tight muscles in your body. These gentle exercises encourage a lengthening and re-education through voluntarily contracting and releasing tight/held muscles, and will help you connect your mind to your body and improve movement in your body as a whole. It is deeply effective and relaxing!

I have completed two sets of training in teaching Somatic Movement and currently include  Somatic movements within my Yoga classes, to encourage a greater awareness to how the body moves.  I also teach a regular Somatic Movement only class, on a Thursday morning at 9.30am at Ridgeway Community Centre, full details can be found in the table of classes section under the Yoga Heading.
