Bridget is not only a cultivated world traveller, but she has a lifetime of experience and curiosity for working with human bodies.
At a young age she was a skilled artistic gymnast. During these years she had her first glimpse of yoga in a book about gymnastics and was interested in the feeling she had after just a few sun salutations. The heavy training and competition led her to explore various healing and recovery techniques in the sports medicine field (chiropractic, physiotherapy, water resistance, and a form of pilates for example).
Bridget went on to study Biomedical Sciences and Pathology. She graduated from Otago University (New Zealand) in 1995 and worked in hospitals in NZ and UK for the next 16 years.
However, her love of the philosophy behind alternative healing arts (and the convincing results) led her to study Chinese Medicine at the College of Intergrated Chinese Medicine (UK). She graduated with a BSc (honours) in Acupuncture in 2008.
Today Bridget puts this wealth of experience and knowledge to good use by creating unique therapy programmes and retreats for those that need it.
