Traditional Chinese Medicine For Yoga
You can find our bios below but we guess you are here because what you really want to know is why you should spend your money on our course? Fair enough.
Well, we can guarantee you that you are going away with way more information and practical tips than you paid for. We know this because we are course junkies and understand what it feels like to learn from inspiring trainings and...we also remember how it is to be on a crap one!
We are lucky to have met (and still have) some great teachers in our lives. When it comes to yoga, we are particularly grateful to Madelaine Heinemann, Nirilipta & Uma Dinsmore-Tuli, Norman Blair, Cecily Milne, Kathryn Bruni-Young & Jenni Rawlings.
Our other online home is here, where you can read more about us and our TCM clinical practice.
It all began when I was in my late teens and I had a few health challenges. One day, at a whim I picked up in a large Italian supermarket (no fancy self help bookstores then), a shiatsu book and practiced a self massage routine. The following day I learnt that vigorously pummelling my lung and large intestine channels (meridians) had physical effects. It didn’t feel great at first but was thrilled nevertheless. I had concrete proof. The seed was planted.
That seed would have to wait for a few years to sprout. Grief can be a profound teacher and stirred me back on the health path in my mid 20’s. I never actually ended up studying shiatsu but in 2005 landed in Thailand where my bodywork learning began. I’ve been working with people’s health ever since.
Hi I’m Rebecca! When I get asked what I do for a living...well, it can be a conversation maker or killer! I offer so much more than sticking needles into people, let me elaborate....
I’m a qualified Chinese medicine practitioner, acupuncturist, Bowen & bodywork therapist, yoga teacher, mover & shaker and if you haven’t worked it out yet...a life long learner!
I have always believed that we have within us all that we need; sometimes we just need some prompts to access our resources. My experience is that Chinese medicine and yoga are incredibly effective instruments to facilitate this. They offer accessible and practical ways to understand ourselves and our place in this world. The journey towards ‘health’ is individual and one that’s not just about feeling well and being free from pain.
