About me

This site was born out of a passion for wellness and a belief that everyone, no matter what their age, deserves to be healthy and deserves to be happy.  I also believe age is just a number and that we all have the potential to live complete, happy, and active lives.

My own quest for wellness began some years ago when I caught chicken pox from my daughter.  The virus invaded my right lung and damaged it, leaving me prey to pneumonia and lung collapse.  I could barely move from my chair without collapsing in a breathless heap.  I became determined to get well again for the sake of my family.  The road was long.  My wellness journey started with a few yoga stretches and breathing exercises.  Slowly I got stronger and began walking every day.

Today, I am almost completely healed.  I do yoga and walk in beautiful countryside every day- no matter what the weather!- and feel vibrant and energised.  

I have learned so much during my years of seeking wellness,  and now I want to share my knowledge with you.  While more or less confined to a chair, I studied for a degree in biology and had a particular interest in brain and behaviour.  Since then I have gained diplomas in Nutrition, Nutritional Therapy, Herbalism and Stress Management.  In 2008 I became a yoga teacher and in 2011 when I moved to a village on the outskirts of York, I began to teach yoga online- you can find me on You Tube at Flexiladies Yoga

I hope that you will join me in my continued quest for wellness.

p.s. Just for the record- I'm 61!
