Shiatsu Massage, Yoga
Rhea fell in love with yoga 17 years ago while studying in her home country’s capital, Edinburgh. Feeling an immediate and deep connection to the practice, yoga became an integral part of her daily life. Rhea’s dedication to yoga and belief in the far-reaching benefits, led her to teaching and in seeking authentic guidance she found Yogi Kamal Singh at Tattvaa Yogashala in Rishiskesh, India. Gaining a 300 YTT (RYS) in this environment deepened and enriched her knowledge and understanding of yoga.
With 8 years of teaching experience Rhea has taught and continued to train around the world in countries such as Brazil, Thailand, Cambodia and France.
Rhea’s combined experience in yoga and being a massage therapist for over a decade informs her teaching and practice. Her calm and compassionate nature fosters a safe environment to facilitate others on their yoga journey. She believes life is all about balance so her adaptive style blends the powerful with the gentle.
Rhea has over 10 years’ experience as a massage therapist. After her interest in the connection between mind and body was ignited with the discovery of yoga, she began to explore other ways of healing. Discovering Shiatsu, the ancient Japanese therapy, based on Traditional Chinese Medicine whilst in Brazil, she returned to the UK in 2005 to study as a Zen Shiatsu Practitioner at the Shiatsu College, Brighton.
