Jerry (North East, UK) I’m Jerry. Kundalini Yoga Teacher. Reformed party girl. Recovering addict. Counsellor in training. I help lost, stuck, unhappy or unfulfilled people to connect to their body, mind and emotions, allowing them to relax and feel moments of peace in the madness. Why? Because I’ve been there. For many years, my addictive personality kept me stuck in a hellish cycle of self-destruction - drugs, alcohol and relationships were my only escape. I couldn’t see a way out - until I discovered yoga. Since beginning my yoga practice, the transformation I have experienced has been nothing short of mind-blowing. I quit my stressful, corporate job to backpack around Australia and South East Asia. I volunteered at an organic farm and lived in a tent for 3 months. I trained in intuitive Balinese massage and started doing Tarot card readings. (All because I did that first class, seems crazy right, but trust me – it has all been worth it!) During my travels, I felt a strong pull to teach and share this practice, so I could help others heal themselves. In October 2016, I completed my 200 hour Kundalini Yoga training in India with Golden Bridge Yoga. Upon my return to the UK, I took part in the first Panacea Project Practitioner course in April 2017. I strongly believe that yoga should be available to everyone, regardless of socio-economic background. I’m now qualified to better serve those most in need, taking a trauma-informed approach.
