About the Tutor

Founder of Yoga Headspace, and co-founder of Yoga United and Yoga United Education, Judy has written a 550hr Yoga Therapy Diploma training which is based on many years of experience and learning. As a yoga therapist, she offers an intuitive and sensitive approach to healing to empower those through their own healing journey.

As well as psycho-educational tools, she engages the physical body as an entry point to a deeper understanding of Self, truth and trust. Unlocking the bodies’ natural intelligence opens up a deeply compassionate healing space and a treasure chest of gems with which to meet stress, grief, emotional & mental turmoil – as well as tapping into creativity, clarity and wisdom. She brings a creative mix of yoga philosophy and psychology to educate people of all ages, sizes and abilities to tune into their own capacity for self-healing, self-care and communal care.


She takes yoga, meditation, embodied mindfulness, restorative yoga, yoga nidra and yoga therapy into health spas, offices, schools, mental health & fertility settings. She runs courses and retreats in UK and India.
