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.

Finding your foundation
Posted on March 7, 2016 by sunfishyoga
Let’s be honest….we all have times when we feel unsteady, unsure of ourselves, lacking in confidence and direction. We can feel unsafe, insecure, as if a puff of wind could blow us away. We could feel this way for a variety of reasons – perhaps we have moved to a new area, moved on from a relationship, lost our job, or our sense of purpose. We may be facing a challenge which feels too overwhelming. Our emotions may be all over the place.
When we are in one of these times, we need to get in touch with our most basic instinct, that of survival. We all have this instinct, we share it with every sentient being on the planet. Sometimes it may get lost in a whirl of emotional turmoil, but it will resurface when we take time to let the dust settle. And we can take steps to strengthen our foundation, our sense of who we are, and of where we belong.

Take a break and align yourself!
Posted on February 24, 2016 by sunfishyoga
As a yoga teacher, I obviously aim for all my students to go away from a class feeling better, more relaxed, stretched yet relaxed. However, it always warms my heart when someone tells me that they are practicing at home, and feeling the benefits of their practice in their daily lives. Taking our yoga off the mat and into every part of our day is an amazing way to improve our lives and boost our wellbeing, so I advocate taking ‘minibreaks’ of just 5 or 10 minutes whenever you can through the day, which will ultimately increase your productivity as well as making you feel amazing! During these brief pauses, you may like to take your awareness to your breath, to your surroundings, or, as in the practice below, to your posture….
So, how long have you sat at your desk without a break? It’s so easy to get caught up in our work and stay in position for hours at a time, and only realise once we move how stiff and uncomfortable we have become!
So, if you’re in need of a break, maybe change position as you read this and then try the visualisation to help improve your posture – and your energy, creativity and productivity as well!
So, if you’re sitting (un)comfortably, let’s begin! Read more here...
