Who is Hazel?
Hazel is a mum, a wife, a yoga instructor, a part time raw foodist and health enthusiast.
She started her yoga journey around 20 years ago taking her first yoga class and was immediately hooked. But with being a teenager there was far too many distractions so she delved in and out of the yoga for many years. Her Dad claims she started yoga when she was 4 when he would talk her through shavasana(deep relaxation) to get her to sleep!
She returned to yoga 14 years ago, more dedicated, always knowing that to become a teacher was something she aspired to. Hazel's mum was a great inspiration to her growing up, being a Reiki Master, Refloxologist, Yoga practitioner and healthy food pioneer, it was in Hazel's blood! But when Hazel's mum tragically passed away 12 years ago, she didn't want to waste any more time and started her yoga teacher training.
Becoming a new mum herself she understood first hand the benefits of Prenatal Yoga for mum & baby through pregnancy, labour and afterwards. She trained as a Prenatal teacher in London with Uma Dinsmore Tuli in 2012. Adamant that she wanted Tadhg her son to grow up with yoga and also to create a support network for her prenatal students after they have had their babies, she returned to London in 2013 to train as a Mother & Baby and Toddler & Preschool Yoga teacher.
Hazel loves to bring creativity into her classes and draws from all the different styles she has trained in and from her own yoga and life journey.
Hazel has been very fortune to have trained with amazing international teachers such as Uma Dinsmore Tuli, Shiva Rea, Matthew Sweeney, Carol Murphy, Lalit Kumar and many more. She is currently training in Prana Flow with Shiva Rea and will be returning to Amsterdam this autumn to continue her training.
Hazel loves all things yoga, feeling very fortune to have yoga in her life and is looking forward to enjoying the rest of her yoga journey.
