I (Sarah Swindlehurst) am a professional Yoga Therapist and Yogakidz Worldwide Yoga Teacher Trainer. I am also a qualified Hypnotherapist working with a range of client and disorders to assist clients to wellness. Brainspotting and or TRE (tension/trauma release exercises) are also used if required also (in particular when working through trauma issues).
With a BA (Hons) degree in Photography and an art background that ran alongside Yoga, I offer sessions in Photography/Art as Therapy. All my therapy work compliments one another amazingly, or as individual tools for clients to access.
As a sub-modality, I have trained as a Naturopathic Nutritionist, Detox Specialist & Raw Food Cleanse Coach and I create cleanses for a variety of clients. Based in the North West of England in Lancashire, I work with numerous clients and students in yoga, nutrition, health, and healing, nationally and internationally. I wrote consistently for ‘OM & Lifestyle’ magazine on Yoga Therapy over 8 years and now write freelance for various magazine and editorials .
As a Yoga Trainer, Coach and Mentor I work with private clients, corporate clients and in Yogakidz Worldwide as a senior Yoga Teacher Trainer (yogakidzworldwide.com).
I am a registered teacher with Yoga Alliance Professionals. This accreditation demonstrates excellent standards as set by Yoga Alliance Professionals.
I have been practicing yoga since 1996 and teaching since 2003. A Senior Teacher registered with Yoga Alliance Professionals, and has been taught by David Swenson, Debbie Mills, Matt Ryan, David Williams, Kino MacGregor, Brian Cooper and many more wonderful inspiring teachers. I teach Hatha, Ashtanga, Therapeutic, & Chakra Yoga. My own personal practice is a primarily Ashtanga Yoga, second series, although I enjoy a mix of Hatha and Therapeutic Yoga too.

In Yoga Therapy, Hypnotherapy and Nutrition, I specialise in therapy for clinical & general health, mental health, including trauma healing, anxiety/depression, phobias, eating disorders, and women’s health (studied women’s health with Uma Dinsmore-Tuli). Success stories include ME clients, women with fertility issues, asthma, sinusitis, smoking addiction, hypertension, insomniacs, depression, anxiety disorders, behavioural issues – ADHA, ADD in children.
With a sound working knowledge of yoga, nutrition and of medical ‘symptoms’, I create ‘prescriptions’ that are individualised towards the persons ‘symptom’ or illness. As much of my work is with those recovering from trauma, I use TRE (Tension/Trauma Release Exercises)and or Brainspotting to assist the client to move on from their trauma, in very safe and effective processes. Please do contact me, for a more personalised perspective on how I can help you.
Not just working with the mechanics of the physical body and nutrition, I work with the clients emotional, mental and spiritual bodies also. With an understanding that ‘symptoms’ usually start first in the energetic body(ies) and then eventually manifest as ‘symptoms’ in the physical body, I work to get to the very root of the cause. For example, a symptom can stem from an emotional response that has embedded its self in the body or a mental illness that is playing itself out in behavioural forms. Whatever the cause, I work with the client in order to heal the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual self.
