Fern began her yoga journey when she completed a course in yoga Nidra (yogic sleep) at the age of 16 when she wanted to learn some tools to manage stress. This sparked her ever-deepening commitment and interest in learning more about the connections between mind, body and spirit. Her passion for yoga and its philosophy grew, taking her on a spiritual journey in which she has developed considerable knowledge and skills in this field.
Fern set out on her spiritual path training with international yoga teachers all over the world. Travelling to India, where she also spent time in an Ashram, Bali where she qualified as a Kid’s yoga teacher, Nepal and Thailand, where she experienced a 10-day training in yoga and mindfulness during which the days were spent in silence (much like a Vipassana).
During her travels she has specialized in a unique style of yoga – Yin Fascial Yoga. This particularly appealed to her because of the way it facilitates the release of any trauma that might be held in the body. It does this by hydrating and opening the fascia through its uniquely designed movements (fascia is a layer of tissue which is believed to store patterns, emotions and traumas). Fern has achieved her 500-hour advanced teaching certificate in Dynamic Spiral & Yin Fascial yoga and a 200-hour certificate in Hatha yoga. Her passion for Yoga, Meditation and Mindfulness shine through in her teaching and offer a safe space for the individual to really open and let go.
Fern’s belief is that by working with the body and the mind together we can truly alleviate suffering
