Reflexology, Jin Shin Jyutsu and Yoga in Ashford, South East Kent
Hello and welcome to Sunfish Yoga and Therapy. I am based at my beautiful studio in Wye between Ashford and Canterbury in Kent, and my aim is to help you feel your very best!
Whether you are in need of some total pampering, want to learn to move your body in ways that make you totally relaxed and yet full of energy, or you want some quick and easy ways to take care of yourself in those spare 5 minutes, there is something here for you. The studio offers Dru yoga, prenatal and postnatal yoga, reflexology, Jin Shin Jyutsu, mindfulness, baby reflexology and nutrition advice. Neal's Yard Remedies organic products are used in treatments and are also available to sample and purchase.
With many more classes and events on the way, do get in touch if you'd like to know more, and follow me on Facebook and Instagram
Why not try a relaxing treatment, in my comfortable and peaceful therapy room, with reflexology or Jin Shin Jyutsu, and let me de-stress and relieve your aches and pains, or enjoy some Dru yoga, a soft and flowing style suitable for anyone, however inflexible they may feel! You can learn in a group, have an individual class, or concentrate specifically on learning to relax the body and focus the mind with breathing and mindfulness techniques.
If you are a mum-to-be, you could enjoy a maternity reflexology or Jin Shin Jyutsu treatment, or attend a prenatal yoga class in Wye, near Ashford, Kent, finding ways to enjoy your pregnancy and prepare for the birth of your baby. You could also attend one of our regular birth preparation classes with your partner.
And if you're a new mum, why not come along to my postnatal yoga class, with your baby - no babysitter required! - and stretch, tone and relax your body, in ways which entertain and include your baby as much as possible. Recover from your pregnancy and enjoy being able to move your body with energy and vitality! Baby reflexology classes are also available at the studio, and there will be occasional infant first aid classes too.
All classes and therapies are available at my studio in Wye, near Ashford in southeast Kent. Having opened in July 2017, the studio is easily accessible from the surrounding areas of Canterbury, Folkestone, Dover and Faversham.
I work with my clients, not solely with their conditions; however, people often approach me for help with stress, anxiety and depression, neck, shoulder and back problems, insomnia, headaches and migraines. During pregnancy, I often work with ladies with oedema, heartburn, breathlessness, backache, sciatica and pelvic girdle pain (also know as symphysis pubis dysfunction). These conditions may be relieved by reflexology or Jin Shin Jyutsu treatments, whilst in a yoga class safe and effective movements can be given on an individual basis, as I always work with small groups to ensure personal attention whenever necessary.

Meditating with the phases of the moon
Posted on October 14, 2018 by sunfishyoga
If you have attended any of my Dru yoga classes, you may already be familiar with one of my favourite sequences, the Moon Salutations. These form a beautiful flowing sequence which helps to bring balance to the endocrine and chakra systems. This sequence, together with meditation, a growing awareness of the phases of the moon, and, for women, an awareness of our own monthly cycles, has been a large part of my approach when teaching Dru yoga classes.

Yoga in difficult times
Posted on October 15, 2018 by sunfishyoga
When I look back at the past year – or two! – I have to say things have been challenging. Difficult, really. Just plain hard a lot of the time. On previous occasions when the challenges have come thick and fast, I have stopped taking care of myself. It’s been a definite pattern. I’ve taken care of others, yes, but myself no. On these occasions, I have been known to stop meditating. For years.
This time it’s been different. I know that’s my tendency, so I have been careful to maintain some form of my daily practice in whatever way I can.
I have expanded my business and opened my own yoga studio. Some of you reading this may have already come along for classes and / or treatments. The process hasn’t been easy but I am incredibly proud of the space we’ve created.
There have been personal health challenges, and in fact these have strengthened my commitment, as, along with super-healthy diet and lifestyle, I truly believe that yoga and meditation have directly contributed to moving beyond these.
