Yoga is powerful self-care. The best thing is that it can be fully tailored whether you have 5, 10, or 20 mins to spare or a full 2 hours. 

There is no need to be flexible or to practise mostly postures to reap the benefits yoga has to offer, mentally and physically. There are many practices to choose from including breathing methods (pranayama), meditation, mantra, and yoga nidra.

Would you like to try a private and tailored yoga session or do you prefer to attend a group yoga class? Do you love the sun salutations and want to understand the full practise? Are you a consientious company looking to offer yoga to your staff?

We offer several options for yoga, in-person and online. We specialise in traditional yoga, yin yoga, mantra, meditation, pranayama, and yoga nidra and it does not matter if you are a beginner or practise regularly.

Life Coaching

Everyone gets stuck in life sometimes. Not knowing how to move forward can leave us feeling insecure, frustrated, tired, dissatisfied, or anxious. 

A life coach encourages us to look at the present and future and assists us with gaining clarity, confidence, and motivate us to take actions and move forward. They show different perspectives and help us to change negative feelings into opportunities and transform lack into abundance.

During a session you explore which areas in your life need attention and what realistic options there are to move forward. Ingrid gives you her full attention and she will listen, ask questions to gain clarity, encourage you, keep you accountable, support you, and celebrate achievements with you. A plan of action will be created to reach the results you want. Fun is a big part of Ingrid's unique approach. 

Sessions last 45 minutes to 1 hour and cost £50.

“Ingrid devised personalised yoga nidras for me. It led to deep reflections which helped me solve and resolve personal and interpersonal challenges and increase my sense of purpose in the world. Simply wonderful. 

Ingrid devised life coaching with me when I felt stuck particularly with finances. I can't recommend her insight and guidance enough. She got me thinking from a different perspective. Practises that I still use to this day. Thank you Ingrid. You have shown me that change does indeed comes from within.”


“Menopausal with joint pain and muscle stiffness I joined yoga sessions (somewhat sceptically) to look for some relief from my symptoms. Ingrid was very patient and caring giving advice and tailoring practices to suit my beginners (not got a clue) level within our mixed ability group. I learned a lot about how yoga could and did help me with my symptoms. 

As a bonus the sessions also made me feel more positive in general - Ingrid has a very cheerful and can do outlook which is infectious! I can now say “I practice yoga” regularly and feel stronger all round for doing so. Thank you Ingrid!

Theresa - Better Life Yoga

"I worked with Ingrid for a number of life coaching sessions recently. I found her integrity, understanding and her ability to hold me accountable very helpful. I have many projects on the go (always!) and sometimes I know I have scattered thinking and Ingrid worked with me to refine the key areas I wanted to work on. I have already had results from the marketing actions I put in place after our conversations. 

Also (and perhaps more importantly) Ingrid also made sure I also relaxed and took time to celebrate and enjoy my life! I would highly recommend Ingrid to you if you are looking for someone to shine a light to uncover your habits/beliefs, to help you make positive shifts in all areas of your life."


"I was fortunate enough to meet Ingrid when she was just at the beginning of her adventures into plant husbandry and herbal medicine. Seeing her fuse together all her passions, which are also her skills, has been amazing - but to be able to benefit from these as her yoga student has been a sublime and grounding experience. Ingrid is thorough in her approach, and sees the individual first and really works with you to help you find a connection into your body.

If you work with Ingrid you are choosing not a life coach, a herbologist, yoga instructor or gardener - you're choosing someone to partner you through whatever transformation it is you need to make. Her kindness, dedication, and sense of fun are evident in every aspect of her work, and life. I couldn't recommend her more highly."


"Having used Ingrid's gardening skills I can safely say she is excellent. As an experienced gardener who just doesn't have time currently I needed someone who understands my plants and their needs and isn't just going to cut the lawn and leave (she cuts lawns as well though). If your garden needs some TLC or even a bit of a makeover be assured she is very good and willing to work with you to achieve what you want in your garden."


"I have had back pain for more than a year. Ingrid has given me some stretches which I have been doing twice a day. What a difference!! Thanks so much Ingrid"


"Ingrid's life coaching was wonderful! She helped me gain clarity on where I was at and where I wanted to go, including digging out some things that I hadn't realised were important to me. Throughout several sessions, she was patient, understanding and went the extra mile to help keep me accountable for the plan she was helping me set. Would recommend."


"I have used Ingrid a few times now for supporting with the upkeep of my garden and can say she does a fantastic job. She offers great advise and feedback on plants in my garden and what she had achieved/ planned to do on her visit and completes any tasks I ask to be completed. It's also a great support to know if I need advice she is there to offer support. I would really recommend Ingrid."
