Judy has practised Yoga for many years and has been teaching Pre and Postnatal Yoga since 1996. It was while working as a nurse in Asia that she first became drawn to Yoga, when expecting her first child. She gained enormous benefit from this practice which gave her the confidence to go on to have her second child at home. She trained initially in South India at the Sivananda Vedanta Ashram in Kerala. She subsequently went on to train for a further 2 years with Janet Balaskas, Lolly Stirk and Yvonne Moore at the Active Birth Centre in London. It was at this time that she came to understand how a more intuitive approach to Yoga, based on the teachings of Vanda Scaravelli, could transform her practice. She gained her Diploma in Teaching Yoga with the British Wheel of Yoga (BWY) in the late 1990’s and has also completed a Diploma in Baby Yoga with Birthlight, and Yoga for the Special Child at the Special Yoga Centre in London. She also has a strong interest in the use of hypnosis in childbirth and teaches HypnoBirthing privately and runs Breathing, Relaxation and Self-Hypnosis classes within the NHS.
She is a registered midwife, and runs her own classes in Yoga for Pregnancy, Couples Birth Preparation workshops, Postnatal and Baby Yoga. She also offers Yoga for the Special Child and HypnoBirthing and Birth Preparation on a private one-to-one basis. As Director of the YogaBirth Teacher Training and Tutor for the BWY Pregnancy Module, she has a deep interest in passing on her knowledge to other teachers. Judy teaches in Aberdeenshire and Perthshire and runs courses throughout the UK.
