After the first session she was instantly hooked.

She became friends with all the yoga instructors and decided to take the next step and sign up to the 200hr Hot Power Yoga training with Dylan Ayaloo in Clapham, London.

Fiona Ward
Her Spirit Coach

Going from a single mother of 3, struggling mentally and physically to keep my head above water I decided to make some changes. I'd begun a relationship with a loving, supportive man who was a fantastic step-dad to the kids. He was there for me in the lowest of months but I knew that only I could make the changes needed to put the smile back on my face. I got myself some Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, a personal trainer to hold me accountable and help motivate me and began to seek information into doing a job I'd always been passionate about but didn't have the time due to raising children on my own. January 2018 I met with Mel for the first time and felt an instant connection with having similar beliefs and motivations. Mel put me in touch with a friend who helped fund my first course in Level 2 Fitness Instructor. This covered a practical, principles of exercise, nutrition and anatomy and physiology. It was hard to put myself out there, to make myself vulnerable and thrust myself out my comfort zone but I kept my head down and pushed through. I passed this exam July 2018. I went on to start my Level 3 Personal Trainer in September 2018 and passed with flying colours in February 2019Her Spirit is full of like minded women who support and encourage each other. It has given me the chance to meet new people and make new friends, try different exercise that I wouldn't have normally tried, allowing me to incorporate more fun in my exercise routine with variety. It's also been a support when advice or information is needed. There's no judgment, no cliche, just women helping women to be the better versions of themselves and thrive!
