Vicky Brown

I first started practising yoga in the early 90's.  I then went on to practise more regularly when I joined the ambulance service as I felt it helped me to develop the strength and flexibility that I needed, particularly in my back, to lift the heavy patients!

In 2006, during the pregnancy of our first child, I attended pregnancy yoga classes and was struck by how relevant and beneficial yoga was for expecting mums.  I felt the classes prepared me well for my expanding pregnancy, labour and the first steps into motherhood.  I decided I wanted to learn more about yoga so embarked on a foundation course, which was the first step to becoming a teacher.

 
I have been teaching yoga since 2009 and qualified as a British Wheel of Yoga teacher which I feel has a strong basis in safety, whilst allowing teachers to explore different styles of yoga.  After completing this general teacher training I then went on to obtain a
specialist pregnancy and post-natal yoga qualification and now I teach a general yoga class, pregnancy yoga and mother and baby yoga in East Taphouse and Lostwithiel.

As a mother of three young children, I feel I really understand the value of yoga in pregnancy and how it can help post-natal recovery.  I also understand how it can keep you sane in the chaos that is life!

 

 "Vicky is a truly nurturing Yoga teacher and I really love her classes.  She is gentle and calm, as well as encouraging.  Her experiences as a mother of three really impact on her teaching, and I would have no hesitation in recommending her.  A wonderful and professional teacher."
