Sue Leach, founder of The Hub, homeopath

 

I came to homeopathy 21 years ago when my daughter was nine months old and I had mastitis. An NCT friend suggested homeopathic remedies and, well, I’ve never looked back – boob went from concrete solid, red hot raw and so painful I didn’t want my poor child near it to back in action within a day.

Sue Leach, homeopathy & food intolerance testing

I came to homeopathy 21 years ago when my daughter was nine months old and I had mastitis. An NCT friend suggested homeopathic remedies and, well, I’ve never looked back – boob went from concrete solid, red hot raw and so painful I didn’t want my poor child near it to back in action within a day.

Classes

Hannah Bimpson, yoga

Hannah Bimpson came to teaching yoga from a background as a professional dancer.

‘Yoga has always been something that goes hand in hand with dance but my real love for it started around four years ago when I began taking regular classes. I soon knew it was something I wanted to teach and began working towards my teacher training. I decided that for me it was important to go to the root and study in India...

Having danced since I was knee high to a grasshopper and worked as an osteopath, movement is a big priority for me – I firmly believe that movement is medicine for the body. In a time when we are all becoming far more sedentary and much more stressed my aim has become to teach busy people to find moments throughout their day to move, breathe and find calm, reducing stress and increasing health and well-being.

 

There is a powerful healing force in our understanding of our senses, environment and inner self. I began with a background in textile design, graduating from Central Saint Martins (1st BA Hons), which allowed me to expand upon my natural fascination with colour, texture and materials.  Then, having completed my 200-hour yoga teacher training this year, I am now holding hatha yoga classes and one-to-one yoga sessions to work on a more personal, customisable yoga practice for the individual.

Lexi Dranidi is a holistic massage therapist and yoga teacher with a profound interest in alternative therapies and the numerous physical and psychological benefits of yoga. Having recently also trained in qigong, she is a firm believer that rediscovering that connection between the body and the mind is the key to overcoming any obstacle in life and living it to its full potential.

Varvara Dranidis, yoga

Varvara has practised yoga for 20 years and now teaches classes and workshops in the New Forest area. Inspired by her mother’s passion and both sisters becoming yoga teachers, she too decided to become qualified and teaches with a beautiful selection of dynamic vinyasa, hatha/vinyasa, restorative, yin and yoga nidra.
