Aleks, Inspirit Massage Therapist
Aleks has been a massage therapist for the last 6 years and joined Inspirit in 2014. She is an active person and passionate about massage and its benefits:
“Learning about the body has shaped how I live my own life and take care of myself through nutritional and emotional wellbeing. All aspects of ourselves - how we move, think and nourish our internal body - have a cumulative effect on how we feel. Through Inspirit, I've been fortunate to provide sessions of acupressure massage to those who may not have had the time to seek it out themselves. These sessions not only change the physiology of those who receive them, but also bring an awareness to posture, as well as hopefully motivating people to pursue other forms of self-healing and prevention of injury. For me, every experience has been a positive one and I look forward to sharing my craft with even more people in the future.”
Manu, Inspirit Yoga Instructor
Manu has been a yoga teacher for 17 years and joined the Inspirit team in 2012.
“I discovered yoga when I was looking for a different physical challenge to break from the boredom of my gym routine. It blew my mind. I was really challenged by the practice and non-competitive approach and quickly came to realise that its benefits were reaching much further than anything I had done before. I started to integrate it into my daily routine and never looked back. Today, I am an avid Ashtanga practitioner and owe my wellbeing to my practice. That’s why I try really hard to convince others to do the same. The world can only become a better place with Yoga.”
