About me, Linda Stephens
YA Chartered 500 hr Yoga Teacher. Fully insured.
I used to have a very busy corporate life, but now I’m an even busier mum of three, so I fully understand how life can be stressful! Yoga has helped me personally on so many levels and is now a cornerstone of my life.
I wanted to share the benefits of this ancient science with other busy women in a relevant way, so I created YogaMums.
In 2007 I completed my foundation 450hr training with some of Sydney’s most senior teachers and have kept training ever since.
I’ve been lucky enough to study with the likes of Donna Farhi and Judith Lasater and recently with Jambo Turong (Forrest Yoga guardian) here in England.
In 2012 I undertook a year long pre and post natal diploma with the International Yoga Teachers Association and my real passion for women’s health was ignited.
Now I love teaching women of any age how to get the most out of their bodies and to still those buzzing minds!
I went into labour at 24wks with my third child and was put on strict bedrest for four months to save the pregnancy (my biggest yoga practice to date!)
Because of atrophied muscles, my pubic bone split at 31 weeks when I tried to get up suddenly. Argh!!!
Initially unable to walk, I was diligent with research and rehabilitation and managed to not only birth naturally but also heal myself completely.
I now even enjoy jumping on the trampoline with my kids 🙂
Through my extensive research and ongoing teaching, I’ve found that much of the pelvic floor dysfunction and birthing problems I’m coming across have to do with tension around the pelvis and postural misalign-ment.
Increasingly, my focus is on educating women about the natural alignment and function of the pelvis (the centre of one’s gravity) and how to stand and move well within the therapeutic realm of Yoga.
I’d love to be part of your yoga and wellness journey
