Hi lovely!

I am Fi, the business owner and founder of Supple Spine Yoga. I am originally from Ireland but have been happily living in Scotland for 14 years. I am a holistic yoga teacher, mindset coach, aromatherapist and sound bath healer. I am specialised in the spine, stress, and the chakras. All roads, truly lead to the spine!

 

I started teaching yoga for one simple reason: to help my clients reduce their back pain and stress. Back pain is so prevalent in society, often due to our stressful lifestyles! I wanted to teach the undeniable connection between the body & mind, and to understand that to heal one, you must heal the other.

 

I have been working with clients with pain and stress for over 12 years, have thousands of hours of hands-on experience and all my qualifications are in pursuit of helping you live life full of happiness, confidence, and ease of movement.

 

I can’t wait to help you on this journey!

My yoga teaching style

 

A fusion of anatomy-based yoga with chakra theory. I love designing simple but highly effective sequences to manage the health of your spine and mind. One student lovingly calls my style Yinyasa, lots of yin poses that flow effortlessly into one another.

 

With my advanced anatomy background, I safely guide my students with a fresh perspective and understanding of their bodies, with gentle adaptations to help them realise how capable they are. I love making the poses accessible to everyone no matter their level of experience. You don’t need to be able to do a handstand, crazy backbends or even touch your toes! All you need is to be a person with a body and you’re ready to go. Yoga truly is for everyone not just the super bendy.
