My profession was in the financial IT sector and yoga helped me manage the stress of years of high pressure work load. So impressed was I with yoga that I took up a 2 year yoga teacher training course, while still at work, and commenced teaching in 2000. Now, in my retirement, I continue to teach as a service back to yoga.
In my yoga class, I approach poses in a gentle and safe way. I work out with each participant, his or her physical limitations and respect and stay within those limitations. I believe that yoga should be available and accessible to everyone. I recognize that sometimes a class environment may not be suitable to a participant and a private session may be more appropriate.
Although the approach to poses are gentle, my classes are nevertheless active and strong, to the participants’ limits. Poses are always performed incorporating full breathing. My aim as a teacher is to find the balance between gentle and challenging so that, for the duration of the class, participants’ minds are focused on their bodies and their breaths. By helping them to switch off from the cares of the day, they will be rejuvenated both mentally and physically.
Outside yoga, I enjoy reading, gardening and listening to music.
Bella Besser Post Natal Doula
I am blessed to be a mother and see birthing as not only about bringing a new life into this world, but a sacred time for a woman to connect, through wellness, with who she has been and who she is becoming. It’s both a time of joy and a time of uncertainties of the unknown and perhaps a questioning of competence and the future.
I became a Post Natal Doula as I love children and understand the importance of a strong bonding foundation for the new birth and the family and can provide the support that is needed during this special time.
