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.

So thankful for yoga…
Posted on June 13, 2016 by sunfishyoga
This weekend, I had an accident – nothing too major, but just a fall at home. I’d like to say I fell slowly and gracefully, as would befit a yoga teacher, but sadly, no, it was far from graceful and I hit the ground with a definite thud!
I was a little bit shaken but otherwise fine, until later that day, when I first noticed the aching in my lower back, my hip and my leg. Really not what I need at all, when I’ll be teaching classes every day. Fortunately, however, I know from my training that it is far better to move gently than to stop completely, and, in the absence of serious injury, it is more than safe to continue with my practice. Even more fortunate, perhaps, that I have recently returned from the Dru yoga back care course, and so had a fabulous range of movements and postures to practise specifically to prevent the stiffness from setting in. So two days later, I have a very slight ache in my hip but otherwise feel totally fine and have taught the first class of the week with no issues.

What’s stopping YOU from trying yoga?
Posted on June 20, 2016 by sunfishyoga
When it comes to reasons for not doing yoga, I’ve probably heard them all….
I can’t do yoga because I’m not very flexible
I can’t do yoga because I find it difficult to relax
I can’t do yoga because I can’t touch my toes /stand on my head/wrap my legs round my neck/I’m not a contortionist etc….
I can’t do yoga because I don’t look right…like the people in the magazines
I can’t do yoga because it’s not for men / older people / larger people / unfit people / people like me
I’m not healthy enough to do yoga
You get the idea…in many cases, people feel intimidated by the image of yoga as portrayed in the media. Continue reading here......
