About the Tutor
Founder of Yoga Headspace, and co-founder of Yoga United and Yoga United Education, Judy has written a 60 hour BWY Module in Yoga Therapy and 550hr Yoga Therapy Course which is based on 10 years experience and learning - a sensitive and intuitive approach to collaborate with health seekers to empower and re-member the wholeness of being. She brings a creative mix of yoga-based practices to educate health seekers of all ages, sizes and abilities to tune into their own head space and inner wisdom.
She sees the physical body as an entry point to a deeper understanding of Self. Unlocking the bodies’ natural intelligence opens up a healing space for stress, grief, emotional and mental turmoil - as well as tapping into creativity, clarity and truth.
She takes yoga, meditation, embodied mindfulness, restorative yoga and yoga therapy into health spas, offices, schools, mental health and fertility settings. She runs courses and retreats in UK and India.
