Yoga Therapist - Letting the Body Lead the Way

Jodie is a Yoga Therapist based in the suburbs of North West London and founder of Remedi Yoga Therapy.

Remedi Yoga Therapy exists to support people discover and live from a place of deep peace, joy, strength and wholeness through the therapeutic application of yoga practices and philosophy.
Jodie’s yoga journey began roughly the age of 14 after picking up an 80’s yoga video and being entertained and curious by the movements and positions and neon lights. Several years later she qualified as a yoga teacher and It was through this training that she felt the deep connection to inner self and witnessed the transformative benefits of yoga on her mind, body and most profoundly spirit. ‘I re-found the home of my authentic Self. It is this Self I endeavour to support people to connect with through the practice of Yoga.

'Despite the populist images you may see on social media, I have never met anyone who can’t do yoga, it is for real every day people’

These yoga practices saw me through profoundly challenging times, and in my doctors words, it would have been much worse if I had not been doing yoga. I seek now to share the science of yoga with people to help them through stress, illness, disease, discomfort and life in general. Yoga is a never ending journey and I hope to be able to offer space for comfort and ease through life.

As well as Yoga, creativity, music, milkshakes, daydreaming, watching clouds pass in the sky, a love of every creature on the planet and friends and family with a dark sense of humour help me stay in a place of light and joy and get through the not so light times.

Jodie works with people of all ages and abilities.. She also currently manages a day opportunities service for adults with learning disabilities and Autism, is a mentor with the organisation Special Yoga whom she has trained with and is now a mentor and senior practitioner.
