My name is Lisa-Marie, I am a qualified Naturopath (BSc) and Zenways Yoga teacher based in North London.
I offer yoga classes as well as an integrated range of natural therapies including: Naturopathic consultations, Reiki healing, Vibroacoustic sound massage, and Ayurvedic, therapeutic and cleansing massage
For me, Inner Balance is all about finding our way back to the centre of our being. The place where we feel empowered, strengthened and vital! The place where we speak, act, feel and do with depth, passion and whole heartedness. Where we live our dreams and settle for nothing less because we are fully present and embodied in who we are.
The world inside ourselves and around us can be chaotic at times and i feel it is easy to lose our connection to this sense of inner balance and my aim is to guide you back to your centre, your feeling of peace, strength and health through Yoga and Naturopathy.
I have had a fascination with healing since I was a young woman, however it was when my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2006 I began to explore and discover the impact of how particular dietary, lifestyle and holistic practices could effect ones state of health, body, heart and mind.
Within a few months I left South Africa and enrolled onto a BSc Naturopathy degree at University of Westminster and the floodgates towards a different life opened. Since that time I have witnessed, practiced and experienced the positive healing effects and power of natural medicine on myself and others. It has become clear to me how with gentle dedication and perseverance illness can be overcome, unhealthy habits let go off and healthy ones cultivated instead.
My journey into Yoga and Meditation began in University and I felt almost instantaneously the desire to share the benefits of what I was experiencing with others. Eventually and with huge gratitude I was able to complete my 200hr teacher training with Daizan Roshi, elder of the Independent Yoga Network (IYN) who brought Zen yoga to the west after living in Japanese monasteries for over 20 years.
Now days my mornings are simply not the same without dedicating them to the practice of yoga and meditation. Naturopathy has become a way of life that has filtered into all areas of day to day living. The practice has allowed me to develop a strong and flexible body and mind. Along the way I have noticed how both yoga and meditation has allowed me to reconnect with the sacredness of life, the beauty of simple moments and how Naturopathy is an integral part of this process. My aim is to encourage, support and empower you on your journey towards a life that is more healthy, empowered, peaceful, authentic and heart centred.
