'Ingrid, your classes were the best yoga classes in the world, they were informative, fun, helpful, interesting, warm and engaging. Through them I gained confidence in myself, my body and my baby and for this I cannot thank you enough.' Carrie & little Robyn - - - 'I highly recommend Ingrid's pregnancy yoga & birth preparation classes to both my NHS and private expectant mothers. Ingrid's classes are an excellent way to stay healthy in mind and body throughout pregnancy and to be well-prepared for birth.' Dr. Claire Mellon, GP & Obstetrician - - - 'I wanted to thank you for the breathing techniques you taught me which proved invaluable and for giving me the confidence I could do it without an epidural, by trusting myself and my body. Six days later, I feel great, I was lucky I did not have any tearing whatsoever and that labour was quick and super effective. Recovery has been second to none. I want to thank you again for all your support and your great yoga classes!' Liana - - - 'Thank YOU Ingrid, you're one in a million. The breathing techniques you gave us in the last relaxation got me right to 10cm easily! Remarkable. So delighted to have birthed a breech baby avoiding a c section.' Natalie


...for All

At times clients arrive saying: 'I have tried everything and nothing works.' I have a great number of wonderful colleagues ranging from obstetricians, midwives to shamans that I work together with and can refer you on to should we both feel need for more than the approaches cited below or supplements to them.

I like to believe that there is a solution to each problem. We can work together towards it.

Working with people of all ages, nationalities and walks of life inspired me to study and practice a range of different approaches to treatment. I began my professional life as a physiotherapist in 1987. One striking experience happened whilst I was working in a hospital specialising in neurology. I cared for a young violinist in a 'wake-coma'. The hospital had kindly given her desperate parents permission to invite an unusual 'healer' to help treat her. He not only succeeded in waking her from coma but also managed to walk up and down stairs with her long before we, her medical team, could replicate the same using physiotherapy techniques.

Witnessing how important it is to address the whole person rather than just the symptoms for effective healing led me to also study unconventional therapeutic approaches. The longer I worked with people the deeper my search for solutions to the health problems they presented with became.

Over the years I have studied a wide range of therapies with renowned therapists as well as shamans and healers. Excluding Public Health, Tropical Medicine, Physiotherapy, Yoga, Reflexology, Reiki, Bach Flower Remediesand Australian Bush Flower Essences other even less mainstream therapeutic approaches I have studied include: shamanism; regression therapy; crystal & gemstone healing; spirit healing levels 1,2,3; the Chinese quantum method and others. I have learned from indigenous societies such as the Bayaka Pygmy hunter-gatherers and the Mayan midwives from Belize that there is so much more to reinstating health than meets the (scientific) mind.
