Paadena (a Sanskrit phrase that loosely translates to “on one’s feet”) offers Yoga and Thai Yoga Massage Therapy with Barbara Wall.
Yoga first made itself known to Barbara when she was eight years old, her early interest sparked by a book, purchased with pocket money. This interest has developed over many years with different teachers. Her practice has been mostly inspired by the late Marilyn Freedman, a dedicated follower of the late Vanda Scaravelli.
After passing the three year teacher training course with the British Wheel of Yoga (recognised by Sport England as the governing body for yoga in Great Britain), Barbara began teaching her own classes in Worcestershire. in addition to teaching, Barbara qualified as a Chiropodist and her classes and teaching are greatly influenced by her training and focus on developing a greater awareness of grounding and the importance of the feet.
Thai Yoga Massage Therapy (TYMT) is a form of bodywork that benefits both the giver and receiver. It has evolved into a unique and magical combination of deep stretching, yoga, rhythmic compression, soft-tissue manipulation, gentle rocking, energy balancing and acupressure. Barbara is an experienced, professional therapist and teacher who understands the full power and true healing in the ancient art of TYMT. Barbara’s Diploma course is now accredited by the Federation of Holistic Therapists. The Diploma course will earn you 10 cpd.
Classes are held in a purpose built studio overlooking the beautiful Suckley countryside. The high standards of Barbara’s teaching qualifications and teaching practice are continually supported, developed and progressed by the BWY and FHT.
