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.

The importance of sleep
We all feel so much better for a good night’s sleep. But how many of us make it a priority in our busy lives? There are so many things that can get in the way of us having enough time to sleep well and for enough hours. I work with new mums, and remember well the effects of disturbed nights when my own son was small – nobody understands why sleep deprivation is used as a form of torture so well as a mum who is up all through the night! In Sarah Moss’s book, ‘Night Waking’, the protagonist Anna muses during yet another night up with her son as to how many years of her life she would gladly exchange for a full 8 hours:
' It depends on how long my life will be. Of a hundred years, I would give ten.....'

Decluttering and looking after ourselves
Posted on February 1, 2016 by sunfishyoga
I have been thinking a lot about happiness lately – along with writing more and being more proactive in my business (Ok, I didn’t go into yoga teaching and therapies to do marketing and accounting, but I do have to accept that they are necessary evils!), taking steps to live a happier and higher-energy life is key for me this year. It’s so easy to feel a bit overwhelmed by the many demands of life, and before you know it, you can feel less than your best!
Luckily for me, most of the things I teach – and use regularly – are hugely effective at lifting my mood. Some energetic or relaxing yoga can work wonders, as can a bit of reflexology, and Jin Shin Jyutsu in its simplest form is really the art of identifying and then balancing the subtle shifts of our moods. And ultimately, for me, the key to feeling good, day by day, is to take time out for things I enjoy...
