Reflexology, Jin Shin Jyutsu and Yoga in Ashford, South East Kent
Hello and welcome to Sunfish Yoga and Therapy. I am based near Ashford 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.
Why not try a relaxing treatment, in the comfort of your own home, 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, or 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 Birthlight prenatal yoga class in Wye, near Ashford, finding ways to enjoy your pregnancy and prepare for the birth of your baby.
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!
Home visits are provided in the Ashford area and in surrounding towns and villages in south east Kent, subject to travelling time and availability. Classes are easily accessible from the surrounding areas of Canterbury, Folkestone, Dover and Faversham.
I work with my clients, not 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.

Time for a holiday!
Posted on November 24, 2015 by sunfishyoga
How long is it since you had a holiday? And how long since you took a holiday before you were exhausted, when you could really enjoy it?
The trouble with holidays seems to be that they don’t come round quickly enough. So when they finally arrive, we really feel in need of them – whether it’s a totally relaxing, lie-on-the-beach kind of break, a complete change of scene, or an adrenaline-rush activity holiday! I once heard Caroline Myss talk about how some of us seem to need to justify our need for a break – you know, when you hear someone say, ‘yes, I really needed a holiday, I was so exhausted‘. As if apologising for needing to stop working for a while. Her response was amusing, but dead right – ‘just take a holiday when you’re not exhausted, when you can really enjoy it!’
And how long is the optimum holiday? Because for many or us, we are so stressed out before we actually go away, that it takes several days to relax and really start to enjoy ourselves. So we might only really appreciate the last few days, and then, if life back home isn’t really something to look forward to, the last bit of the holiday can be spent dreading the amount of work which will be awaiting our return! That’s if we haven’t succumbed to checking emails and making calls during our holiday, that is!
So, if holidays don’t come around soon enough, and then we don’t fully relax and enjoy them when they do, what is the answer?
